John Oates, who is one-half of pop duo Hall & Oates, has a fluid new project called ‘Good Road to Follow,’ where he will release a single a month for the next year. It’s a collaborative exercise unrestrained by the album format. The musician, whose heyday was in the ’80s, has recruited both Taylor Swift and Vince Gill to appear on separate tracks.

It’s certainly an interesting project, since every song is done with a different producer and a different co-writer. But specifics about working with Swift and Gill, such as the direction or tone of the tracks, have not yet been shared. It’s a testament to both country artists that Oates sought them out as participants. They are from different generations, and each will bring their unique flavor and flair to their respective songs.

“I reached out to the songwriters, musicians and producers that I respect and asked them if they would work with me on one individual song,” Oates said about the project. “It was a pure collaboration from writing to recording. My idea was to share an intense creative experience and not get bogged down in a long drawn out album project.”

Oates has also recruited Swift’s onetime tourmates Hot Chelle Rae.

When Oates’ work with Swift and Gill will be made available has not yet been revealed. It certainly gives fans of all three of these artists something to look forward to.
