Michael Monroe Streaming New Single “78” Online
January 20, 2011
Former Hanoi Rocks frontman Michael Monroe has posted the first single from his upcoming solo album at www.facebook.com/michaelmonroeofficial — a song called “’78”.
Monroe, along with Wildheart’s mainman Ginger on guitar, ex-Hanoi member Sammy Yaffa on bass, Steve Conte of New York Dolls and Company Of Wolves fame on guitar, and Karl ‘Rockfist’ Rosqvist on drums (a Swedish/Finnish drummer who has played with both Chelsea Smiles and Danzig) will release a new album later this year.
Michael Monroe recently released the live album ‘Another Night In The Sun/Live In Helsinki’, through Universal Records’ subsidiary, Spinefarm Records. The 15-track outing hit stores on September 27th, 2010.
Says Jarkko Nordlund, Managing Director, Universal Music Finland “Michael Monroe is a true international rock star, and Universal Music’s international network is extremely proud to be working with him. Spinefarm Records is the best home for this rock’n’roll legend, as both label and artist share the same degree of professionalism and passion.”
Regarding ‘Another Night In The Sun/Live In Helsinki’ Monroe said: “No excuses, it is what it is, and will probably end up sounding great with all its clunks and flaws, once it’s mixed and finished. Obviously, we’re not doing any overdubs, so you’ll have a very raw ‘rough and ready-or-not’ live recording of another rockin’ night in the sun in the beautiful Finnish summer!”
