Blackmore's Night - New Album Due In June

Blackmore's Night have announced that they will be releasing their brand new album Dancer And The Moon, on June 11th in North America and June 14th in Europe via Frontiers Records, the band's 8th original studio album. Dancer And The Moon will be released in two editions, as a CD and a digipak deluxe edition with a bonus DVD that includes music videos of "Dancer And The Moon" and of "The Moon Is Shining (Somewhere Over The Sea)", plus an extensive interview with Ritchie Blackmore and Candice Night.

The first single "The Moon is Shining (Somewhere Over the Sea)" will be released on May 6th. The album includes "Carry On... Jon," that Ritchie wrote as a heartfelt tribute to his former band mate, the late Jon Lord, Randy Newman's "I Think It's Going To Rain Today", Uriah Heep's "Lady In Black", and "The Temple Of The King" that Ritchie and the late Ronnie James Dio collaborated on originally for their band Rainbow.

Candice says: "We find that the Dancer And The Moon is visually and emotionally representative of how we feel about our music. We have always had a very strong pull to the mystery of the Moon. Her magic, her power, her legend... She affects us so deeply that we have named many CDs after her and she is almost always represented in our songs. The dancer gives herself completely, unabashedly and whole heartedly moved by the intensity of the music she feels within her soul."
