"Alone" is a newly written song recorded for Toto's 40 Trips Around the Sun
greatest hits album. The song was penned by Toto members David Paich
, Steve Lukather, Steve Porcaro and Joseph Williams.
"We wrote four brand new songs from scratch, top to bottom, just the four of us sitting in a room," Lukather told Billboard
magazine. "We wrote everything, recorded everything, played everything together."
"('Alone') is a real up, positive thing even though the song is called 'Alone'," he added. "It's about growing old and stuff like that, but it's really energetic and, I think, an interesting take on it."
