LONELY ROBOT: The Big Dream + 3 Special Edition CD Digipak
VÖ: 28.04.2017
Mit "The Big Dream" präsentiert John Mitchell - Sänger, Gitarrist und kreativer Mastermind hinter LONELY ROBOT - sein zweites Album nach dem sehr positiv aufgenommenen "Please Come Home" (2015). Mitchell ist bekannt durch Bands wie Kino, It Bites, Frost* und Arena und erhält Unterstützung an den Drums von Schlagzeug-Ikone Craig Blundell (Steven Wilson). Das optische und konzeptionelle Bindeglied, das Motiv des Astronauten, welches sich auch in den Lyrics wiederfindet, lässt sich musikalisch ebenfalls entdecken. Zwischen Marillion-artigen Melodien und Hooklines, ruhigeren, sphärischen Passagen und harten Gitarrenparts, bietet "The Big Dream" auch einen surrealen Sci-Fi-Touch, der in Kombination mit der frischen, luftigen Produktion in einem atemberaubenden, zeitlosen Neo-Prog-Rock-Werk mündet.
Format: CD | BestellNr.: 23604
Preis: € 14,99


VÖ: 28.04.2017
Lonely Robot, the project masterminded by producer, guitarist and singer/songwriter John Mitchell (It Bites, Frost*, Arena), has announced that ist much-anticipated second studio album ‘The Big Dream’ will be released on 28th April 2017.

Following 2015’s acclaimed debut ‘Please Come Home’, ‘The Big Dream’ has a core theme running through it - one that sees The Astronaut, the central character in the Lonely Robot adventure, emerging from a long period in stasis. Mitchell explains: “The Astronaut wakes up from a cryogenic sleep but finds he’s no longer in space, and is instead in a woodland area surrounded by a group of strange people with animal heads! It's a little surreal, a little ‘Midsummer Night's Dream’ to some extent. This is something of a solipsistic haze, for want of a better description!” Mitchell explains more about his Lonely Robot concept: “I have always envisaged the storyline of The Astronaut’s journey evolving over the course of three albums. And I always knew where I wanted to go with the second album – taking The Astronaut away from space and into a strange and unfamiliar environment. Right now, I have no thoughts of what will happen for the third one but I’d better start thinking about it now!” “The key inspiration for Lonely Robot comes from my love of science fiction films, and the atmospheric soundtracks that often accompany them - such as Alan Silvestri’s compositions for ‘Contact’ and Clint Mansell’s work for ‘Moon’.”

The album once again features drums by Craig Blundell (Steven Wilson), with all other instrumentation on the album delivered by Mitchell himself.
