This is my second album after the release of my debut album 'Fade out lines' in 2019 and several singles in 2020/2021. During the special Corona crisis, there was plenty of time to work on new songs and create the respective artwork and fotos. So this album is about these lonely times during the crisis, it's about hope and the desire to "fly away" to visit all the other beautiful locations of our world.
The pre-release of my new album 'Fly with me' started first on my Bandcamp platform, every Friday adding another track to it. Later on May 28th, the other online music platforms followed. Look-out on your favorite music platform, listen to the new album!
The title track 'Fly with me' is based on cool, jazzy harmony changes and a laid-back groove from a TR-909 rhythm machine (Roland) and various percussions. Energizing synthesizer hooklines, dreamy vocals (Heidi Marlen Grau) as well as soprano sax soli in the style of Klaus Doldinger and flugelhorn improvisations in the style of "Herb" Alpert give the song an unmistakable flair and you immediately want to reach for an iced cocktail.
'I'm still hoping' consists of 70's style vocals (Steely Dan) in a kind of rap style combined with rhythmic funk and soul elements paired with the sound of the legendary Roland TR-909 drum machine and percussions. A massive finger bass forms the foundation for this song.
After a short intro with a phaser electric piano, the song 'Lonely Time' begins with an energizing, rocking electric guitar lick, which is followed by a vocal part and transformed into the flugelhorn solo. The rock drums and the synth bass as well as the synth pad sounds complete the song together with the rough rock vocals. As a highlight you can expect a rocking e-guitar improvisation after a break in the middle part, which leads into the chorus.
'Touch my Soul' is an R&B song with a laid-back groove that invites you to dream and relax with its beautiful flugelhorn theme and soft synth pad vibes. Lay back, put your feet up and just enjoy!
Due to its groovy rhythm, the song 'Strange Phantasm' immediately invites you to dance and has some "funky elements" as a surprise. A laid-back groove was combined with a funky clavinet, improvisations with soprano sax, electric guitar, electric piano and synth are also included. The song has originally been recorded in 2019 and was now re-mixed and re-mastered in 2021.
