Eleventh studio album available March 12th
Blackmore’s Night — featuring Ritchie Blackmore, Candice Night and their band of minstrels — have set Nature’s Light for March 12th via earMUSIC, distributed by BFD/The Orchard. It’s the group’s first new album in six years and 11th overall.
Having achieved international success, with several gold records and a global track record of sold out performances, Blackmore’s Night have crafted a 20+ year legacy of merging medieval melodies with rock elements, initially evidenced on Ritchie Blackmore’s groundbreaking work with Deep Purple and Rainbow. Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Candice Night seamlessly blends her ethereal vocals and lyrics, along with a command of numerous classic woodwinds. With Blackmore traversing all matter of six-string instruments, from acoustic and electric guitar to mandolin, mandolas, hurdy gurdy, and nyckelharpa, the result is a unique listening experience.
Showcasing ten brand new songs, Nature’s Light is available on multiple formats, including CD, 180-gram LP gatefold black vinyl, as well as a strictly limited 2 CD hardcover mediabook with a bonus CD of selected songs from the band’s extensive back catalogue, and a limited heavyweight single LP gatefold edition pressed on yellow vinyl.
