Last month, Ritchie Blackmore and Candice Night Blackmore's Night announced the details of their upcoming new album Dancer And The Moon and now the band has premiered its first single "The Moon Is Shining (Somewhere Over The Sea)" as a foretaste of the opus which comes out in June. You can enjoy the new song at this location.

"The Moon Is Shining (Somewhere Over The Sea)" is "based on an old folk Czech melody which Candice and I thought were very melodic and haunting" says Ritchie Blackmore. "We adapted and arranged to suit more of a rock structure. We also played it as a ballad as it was originally intended. We asked several of our Czech friends what it was called but they couldn't tell us, so it remains a mystery."

The new album drops on June 11th in North America and June 14th in Europe via Frontiers Records. You can find more details about it here.

I like the track a lot, very "rocky" with a lot of guitar in it...

This band is always fun to listen to , not life-changing or anything but I'll be sure to give them a listen .

Nice video from Blackmore's Night of 'The Moon Is Shining (Somewhere over the Sea)'

Candice looks and sounds great, would like to hear more guitar..... Only one track though, perhaps other tracks will provide.
