First single taken from Crossing Borders

Crossing Borders has been my first album after two singles and two EPs with 4 songs each. It is pretty clear that I didn’t have the chance to extract any single from my previous records. With Crossing Borders, instead, I’ve decided to play a little bit and this is the reason why, very soon, I guess in about one week, first single taken from the album will be on the market.
The chosen song is “A Whale’s Escape”. Why? Well, first of all because I like the cover I’ve prepared for it. 🙂
I’ve made a cover for each song of the album, you never know…
The second and more serious reason is that I think the song needed a refresh in the mix. I was listening to it few weeks ago and I’ve found it a bit to dark and smothered so I decided to remix it giving it more breath and light. I’m still working at this version. Meanwhile I’ve completed what will be the second song of the single. It won’t be a song from Crossing Borders but instead a new version of “Space Balkans” taken from my first single. This version will very likely part of my Japanese record that will see the light by the end of the year. I will tell you more about this record and how much the simple fact that it was on my mind helped me during recording sessions of Crossing Borders. The new single will also feature the album version of “A Whale’s Escape”.
And now, before saying goodbye, here is the anticipation of the new single cover.

Here it comes… Crossing Borders

Great news!
Finally after about three months of work, my new album is almost ready. In this right moment, while I’m writing this short post, I’m listening to the final playlist for a last check. During these days, I’ve often ridden my bicycle with my new music pumping in my ears. This was very useful to find mistakes, evaluate new arrangements and decide which songs put in the album and what others will need some further improvement or will be included in other future records.
Crossing borders, this is the title, includes 14 new songs mixing different styles and mood. I’m quite happy with them, I hope you will like them too. Of course, among the songs you will find “A Starship Landing in Kalahari Desert”, the one I talked about in this post published few days ago.
Usually, it takes three or four days for a new record to be available on major music streaming services. Waiting for that moment, I can give you here below an anticipation of the album cover. If you like, you can check the full set list in my discography page. As soon as the songs will become available on streaming services you will find there the relevant icon.
