[ 22.03.2007 ] - Solo album of Dolores O’Riordan

Dolores O’Riordan - songstress, smoldering icon and critically acclaimed voice of The Cranberries – is back. Her first-ever solo album «Are You Listening?» will released on May 7th in Europe and May 15th in the USA, and features the stunning new single «Ordinary Day» (out April 30th in Europe). Co-produced by Youth, Dan Brodbeck and engineered by Rich Chycki, the eagerly anticipated album is a 12-track tour de force and marks her first release in four years.

Written and recorded between her homes in Canada and Dublin, the album is a striking return to form, punctuated with angular chords and that crystalline voice. Folk-tinged, electric and deftly powerful, it’s also a relentlessly melodic success. «My time after The Cranberries was a clean slate – no pressure and no contracts», Dolores enthuses. «It was the first time in my life I was a free agent. I had no inhibitions, which is how I felt when I first started out. That’s all visible here.»

Two of the tracks – «Apple of My Eye» and the forthcoming single «Ordinary Day» - were produced by BRIT Award winner, Youth, whose previous credits include The Verve, Embrace, Primal Scream, U2 and Paul McCartney. «He certainly brought his own vision to the table and softened the tracks without affecting their integrity or passion.»

Ultimately, the CD was a process inspired by personal experiences, both light and dark. «My mother-in-law died of cancer shortly after I left The Cranberries, which was devastating. It was like watching a beast attack from the inside out, so the song «Black Widow» is a metaphor inspired by that. At the other end of the spectrum «Apple Of My Eye» was written about my husband and «Ordinary Day» reflects the birth of my third baby, Dakota

Other album highlights include the hypnotic «In the Garden», with its shimmering guitar-rock crescendo, the delicateness of «Watch the Stars», and «Loser», which bristles with loops, layered vocals and an instant, razor-sharp hook. «It was a very organic, natural experience.» Dolores adds, «I play guitar and have four fantastic musicians... a great bass player, a stellar drummer and an immaculate guitarist. Once the first 7 songs were penned, we went into the studio and recorded them first. We didn’t rush it. In total, the writing and recording was a four-year period.»

«The album was an awakening for me in my life – a journey that I completed. It’s like I crossed a bridge, which is a great new plateau to be on. My life is so different to how it was 10 years ago and there’s a great sense of acceptance. It’s a very exciting time to be releasing music again too. Song-writing is truly coming back.»

[ 22.03.2007 ] - «I Could Fall in Love With You» - new Erasure single

Erasure are set to release a new single «I Could Fall in Love With You» on April 2nd via Mute. The single will be available on CD, LCD, 7" picture disc and Digital Download.

Vince: «This is one of the few songs that existed in part before the Maine hotel room writing sessions. Before we started this album, I was really keen for it not to be mid-tempo - I'm having a mid-tempo crisis! Our albums seem to have got slower and slower, so I started searching for classic funk or disco basslines, put some ideas together with chord changes and basslines underneath, and emailed them to Andy for him to sing over the top. The song, like this album, is quite 'up' and uptempo because we're both in good spaces right now.»

«Year Zero»
«Year Zero»

On April 16th, 2007 cult industrial rockers Nine Inch Nails will release their new album «Year Zero» (via Interscope), following two years after «With Teeth» (2005). A concept album dealing with sci-fi end-of-the-world and totalitarian themes «Year Zero» presents 16 more minamilistic and perhaps immediate Nine Inch Nails diatribes - nothing like «With Teeth», this is compact, more lyrically inventive and possibly Trent Reznor's most personal output to date.

«Schattenreich Vol. 4»
«Schattenreich Vol. 4»

On May 25th, 2007 German record label Drakkar will release the fourth part of their famous compilation «Schattenreich». It will released as usual on 2 CDs and DVD.

More than two and a half hours of music and a lot of specials will serve the enthusiasts of the diversified gothic scene again with all their hearts desire. This time there are among others top acts like Rammstein, Oomph! feat. Marta Jandová, Xandria, Nightwish, Placebo, In Extremo, Moby, And One, Apoptygma Berzerk, Letzte Instanz, Within Temptation, ASP, The 69 Eyes, De/Vision, Covenant, L'Âme Immortelle, Jesus On Extasy, Lovex and a lot more.

Also «Schattenreich - Vol. 4» presents itself again as flagship of the good taste of the scene and offers a bunch of club- and underground highlights, hardly missed on commercial compilations, such as Straftanz, Qntal, IAMX, Welle:Erdball, Strip Music or Suicide Commando. The excellent profile throughout the scene, which has become the most demanded subculture of this land, has worked out very well in any case!

Just as well the DVD ties in the quality of the previous «Schattenreich» compilations. More than 20 video clips of the crème de la crème of the dark scene plus bonus material with Within Temptation, Jesus On Extasy, Apoptygma Berzerk, IAMX, Lovex and Oomph! turn the DVD again into a pure highlight. «Schattenreich - Vol. 4» easily keeps the level of high standards, even ups the ante and stays the ultimate compilation from the scene for the scene!

[ 13.03.2007 ] - «Relikt» - Best Of from Das Ich!


Soon after the release of their latest and very succesful 13th album entitled «Antichrist», the German titans of the gothic/industrial genre, Das Ich, made the decision to release a Best Of album. This release shows and definately proves their creativety, uniqueness and impact over the last musical decade all on one album, «Relikt». This is the definitive collection of their most famous tracks and underground club hits. It contains an illustrated 32 page booklet with snapshops of their long lasting career. The limited edition version features many extras including a 48 page booklet and an extra CD with unreleased material and some suprise rare tracks including the winner of this years Das Ich remix competition from the Das Ich homepage.

All these elements make Das Ich what they are today, world renowned, underground heroes for more than a decade.

«Relikt» will released on April 27th via Danse Macabre Records.

[ 05.03.2007 ] - New life of «Let's Get Together»

Vince Clarke
Vince Clarke

Just imagine - Erasure's Vince Clarke has re-written the song called «Let's Get Together» for the Boston pop girl band Girl Authority! The track will be featured on their forthcoming album «Road Trip» (out on March 13th on Rounder Records). This song is actually one of the first Vince Clarke ever recorded, even prior his work with Depeche Mode, and a bit later it was rehearsed for Depeche Mode live gigs in 1981. Some of the original lyrics ave been ammended so that they are more appropriate for the target young female audience. Also, as an homage to that period, Vince Clarke has re-played his signature keyboard riff from the cult Depeche Mode «Just Can't Get Enough» as part of the chorus.
