However, the track closest to Dennis' heart is My Mama Says, which he collaborated with 11-year old award-winning actress Crystal Lee. His mother, who is a piano teacher herself, bears much of the credit for Dennis' passion for music and is the inspiration behind the only track in the album that he wrote the lyrics.

commenting on his album, Dennis said: "The Journey is obviously very personal to me as it charts my 27-year musical adventure since i was 3 years old. Along the way, I've had the pleasure of meeting so many talented individuals who served as inspiration for my music and some of who have made it into the album. it too me five year to finish The Journey, but i still have much more to accomplish oon this seemingly endless journey of mine".

During the album launch event held at Shenanigan's Fun Pub Hyatt Regency Kota Kinabalu. Dennis performed a selection of tracks from his new album, including The Journey.

Dennis Lau's second album The Journey retails at RM50 and is currently available at all major record stores as well as on iTunes.
