Daytime heartthrob Jonathan Jackson (ex-Lucky Spencer, General Hospital) got fans in an excited tizzy when he announced that he and his band, Enation, would be going on a world tour next year, and now he has more fun-filled news. The group has released a new album called Young World's Riot.
Jackson says the new album comes "with a twist," as it's part of Enation's catalog of music off of the album Radio Cinematic, which was released in 2014.
"We've done some remixes, some new songs, and compiled what we feel like is kind of almost the original vision of the record that has finally come to fruition," he shared on Instagram. "Very excited about it. Songs like 'Everything Is Possible' and 'Cinematic.' Of course, 'Young World's Riot,' which hasn't been available for streaming for quite some time. There's a new mix of that song. So feel free to check it out and stream it, buy it, enjoy it. And we look forward to playing these songs live next year."
Jackson also shares that Enation is still on track to release their next new album, Ultraviolet Empire, in 2021, "but we wanted this record with the finished songs to be available as preparation for touring next year."
