“Chris Daughtry and I have been threatening to unleash a duet for years. What better way to do that than by paying tribute to one of our mutual influences…. JOURNEY!” said Lzzy Hale. “This song is not only part of the Stranger Things soundtrack but has been my go-to for karaoke for as long as i can remember! I’m so honored to have been a part of this and I hope it makes you smile as big as I did while recording it!”
“I’ve always loved the song and I was wanting to do a classic cover and my wife and I were watching the Stranger Things season finale and there’s this incredibly intense scene and “Separate Ways” was a big part of this scene. It was so moving just the way it was used, it felt so cool and epic and I was immediately like “THIS is the one! We have to cover this song.” added Chris Daughtry. “Then I was like – how can we make this extra special? What if it was a duet? What if we got LZZY on it!!?? Needless to say I was pumped she said yes and I absolutely love how it turned out!”.
