Get ready for a special treat as the mighty Jorn Lande is releasing another album – and this time it is a twelve track cover album with some unusual song choices. Songs from Kate Bush, Paul Stanley, Eagles, Queen…and many more artists can be found on “Heavy Rock Radio” and even though there seem to be some pop-tracks, all is done Jorn Lande style! “Heavy Rock Radio” will be released on June 3rd, 2016 on Frontiers Music Srl.
Here is a sneak peak at what to expect – “Heavy Rock Radio” Album trailer:
With the exception of a few tracks, Jorn Lande is joined by Trond Holter (Guitars), Francesco Iovino (Drums), Alessandro Del Vecchio (Keyboards) and Thomas Bekkevold (Bass) on this project. Jorn started out with a list of 40-50 songs he wanted to do, narrowed it down to about 15 of which 12 tracks ended up on the album.

The most important thing was to treat these songs with respect for the original versions, my goal was always that the original artist would be honoured and find my version relevant. At the same time my intention was never to compete with the original song and artist, but make it a strong alternative version to enjoy. At the same time it is a well-deserved homage to these artists and bands, who influenced me strongly. – Jorn Lande
Jorn Lande is currently touring with Avantasia and also working on another album with original songs. Stay tuned for a review of “Hard Rock Radio” here on Rock That Metal.
