Palace

Hi Michael, I’m glad we’re given the chance to talk about your new album “Rock and Roll Radio”! I do think that this is one of your top works to date! An amazing album on the whole!
 
M: Hello! Very nice to talk to you again! Thank you very much!
 
 
Well, you released two albums in 2020.One with Platforms and another with Palace. How come? Did you plan it or it just happened?

Palace - Rock and Roll Radio

New album for Palace, the third in a row, and this time Michael has managed to come closer to the music vision he has for Palace… to capture all the things he likes about the 80s rock music in general. Then again, apart from the massive 80s influences and the nostalgic feeling, “Rock and Roll Radio” does have a contemporary and fresh sound on the whole.

The Nest to release debut album “Ad Astra” on March 20th 2020

The Nest has released “River Mnemosyne”, the third single from their upcoming album,“Ad Astra”, on all digital platforms. This song is about a couple who worry that the man has the Alzheimer’s that runs in the family.

The band wants to use their music to make a difference, so the release coincides with the launching of a fundraiser for Alzheimer’s Disease International. Vocals were recorded, and songs were mixed, by Mikko Herranen of Noise Floor studios in Helsinki.
 

Christopher Cross announces April 2020 US Tour

Christopher Cross made history with his 1980 self-titled debut album, winning five Grammy Awards, including - for the first time in Grammy history - the “Big Four” most prestigious awards: Record of the Year (for the single “Sailing”), Album of the Year, Song of the Year (also “Sailing”), and Best New Artist.

In a career spanning over five decades, Cross has sold over 10 million albums. His music has garnered five Grammys, an Oscar, a Golden Globe and five Top 10 singles.

Don Dokken - Solitary

Having heard about DD’s misfortune of losing control of his upper limbs after a spinal surgery not going according to plan, I was surprised to hear my CIE telling me – “hey get this, a new Dokken solo album”… I thought this might be an actual proper pressing of “Solitary”, the second album Don self-released in the middle 00’s. It’s a largely acoustic affair, which has Don collaborating with an impressive array of musicians.
