Legendary rock band Jefferson Starship (featuring David FreibergDonny BaldwinCathy RichardsonChris Smith, and Jude Gold) have released their new EP, Mother of the Sun via Golden Robot Records and it is available now in stores and across digital streaming platforms. Mother of the Sun is Jefferson Starship's first collection of new songs in 12 years. To accompany the release, the band have dropped a lyric video for the track 'What Are We Waiting For?'.

Watch the official lyric video for What Are We Waiting For? below!

The seven tracks on Mother of the Sun include two songs co-written by original Jefferson Starship/Jefferson Airplane members — It's About Time co-written with Grace Slick and another co-written with Marty Balin. The collection also features the return of original Jefferson Starship member Pete Sears, who plays bass on three tracks.

"Paul Kantner was our bandleader and the visionary who kept Jefferson Starship going through so many eras," says Richardson. "He inspired so much about this record, from the messages in the lyrics to the title and album art to the collaborative process of creating music as a band with some of his original muses - Grace, Marty, and Pete. Mother of the Sun is dedicated to PK."

While Jefferson Starship's current members have been touring incessantly (including playing five continents with Kantner before his passing in 2016), Kantner's final "crew" has mostly been riding out the pandemic in their homes. That hasn't stopped them from planning a massive 2021 tour to support Mother of the Sun.

Jefferson Starship also recently released a video for their first single It's About Time, here!.

Jefferson Starship features founding singer/multi-instrumentalist David Freiberg (who was also in Jefferson Airplane during the band's final year), longtime drummer Donny Baldwin (who joined Jefferson Starship in 1982 and also played and sang on many hits of the band's Starship era), lead singer Cathy Richardson (whom Kantner recruited in 2008), 25-year member Chris Smith on keyboards, and lead guitarist Jude Gold, who joined in 2012.

The current lineup of Jefferson Starship is dedicated to breathing new life into this timeless music in their live shows. Massive hits such as 'Jane', 'Miracles', 'White Rabbit', 'Somebody to Love', 'Volunteers', 'We Built This City', and 'Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now' continue to reverberate in pop culture all over the world. Whether in the studio or on tour, the five members still enjoy pushing sonic boundaries, passionately trying to change the world, and staying true to the original spirit of all things Jefferson Starship.
