VÖ: 5. Mai 2017

Das bereits siebte Album des dänischen Sänger & Gitarristen Mike Andersen ”Devil Is Back” erscheint in Lizenz für D-A-CH auf dem Label Cable Car seines Buddies Henrik Freischlader, auf dessen aktuellem Album „Blues for Gary“ er auch mitwirkt.

 Souldiva Joss Stone ist auf dem Track „This Time“ im Duett mit Mike Andersen zu hören. Einen Teil seiner Songs hat Andersen in Nashville geschrieben.

2015 gewann Andersen den Danish Music Award in der Kategorie „Best Blues Album of the year“ für sein Vorgängeralbum „Home“.

Mike Andersen has already released six albums and one EP. On his previous albums, Mike both produced and wrote the material himself. On his new album Devil Is Back, Mike Andersen has loosened the grip on the process and has joined forces with other songwriters and producers who have become part of his musical universe. Devil Is Backis to date the best album from Mike Andersen - it is classic Mike Andersen while also showing his ability to constantly develop and experiment with his music and lyrics.

Some of the songs from the new album have been composed in Nashville, where Mike has worked together with a number of internationally acclaimed songwriters. Together with Heather Bond, Mike has written the track This Timewhich has become a duet with the famous soul singer and Grammy award winner Joss Stone. According to Mike, Joss Stone brought new life to the soul genre which has otherwise often been perceived as an oldgenre:

“The first time I saw her perform on television, she was only 16 years old and she blew me away. I’ve been following her ever since as a fan, so for her to be singing a duet with me on my new album is just a huge honor for me. Joss Stone’s debut album was pure soul, it came out when I was in my mid-twenties and was obsessed with soul and blues music. The fact that she became a world known soul artist at such a young age, kind of gave me a renewed belief in the genre and proved that soul music was not just an important remnant of the past but also an important part of the future.

This is also the first time Mike Andersen has teamed up with a producer in the making of his album. Mads Michelsen - longtime drummer of the Danish band Gnags as well as studio musician on more than 2500 recordings - has worked together with Mike on making “Devil Is Back”. Mads Michelsen has been part of every step towards making the record - from the rehearsal space, to the song choices and studio recordings to finally mixing the album which contains 11 tracks. Presented as a fusion of hot soul, blues, funk, rock and pop together with raw and assertive vocals, the catchy melodies of Mike Andersen have earned him his very own spot in an otherwise traditional field. With his seventh album released, more than 1500 concerts, including 27 international festivals, it is time to discover Mike’s music outside of Scandinavia.
