Sweden's biggest rock band Europe 'have arrived' – as per singer Joey Tempest.
Be it literal or in an abstract sense, the band is back on track with a new smash: Not Supposed To Sing The Blues.
The first single of the rock supergroup’s new longplayer, Bag of Bones released in the UK on Monday 30th April 2012, was produced by one of the hottest producers, Kevin Shirley, who was in charge of the overall album production as well.
"Kevin Shirley did such a great job capturing the spirit of this band. He just let us do our thing and then pushed us and our
songs to the max,” states an enthusiastic Tempest. "Finally we express ourselves completely without restraint. Straight from heart and soul. It took some time but WE HAVE ARRIVED!"
Yet the single title implicates little favor for Blues, the album sound actually does exactly this. Moreover, blues rock personality Joe Bonamassa also contributed guitar on the title track of the new Bag of Bones album.
Not Supposed To Sing The Blues was released digitally on March 9th.
EUROPE guitar virtuoso John Norum resumes single and album this way: “Why drive VW beetle when you can drive a Rolls Royce! Bag of Bones is a classic rock album with lots of class. Even my mom likes it!”
Now let this sound conquer the airwaves again!
