Back To The Moon


Dancer And The Moon

Following the path set back in 1997 with “Shadow Of The Moon” and continued two years later with “Under A Violent Moon”BLACKMORE’S NIGHT pick it up, six albums down the line, with “Dancer And The Moon”. Out on June 11th, this new album feature a traditional for the band mix of originals and covers. The latter category including “The Temple Of The King”, an acoustic gem from RAINBOW’s debut album and now re-cut by Ritchie Blackmore with Candice Night in place of the great late Ronnie James Dio, a URIAH HEEP classic “Lady In Black” and Randy Newman’s chestnut “I Think It’s Going To Rain Today” for an opener, while the closer, “Carry On… Jon”, is obviously a missive to the recently departed Jon Lord, Blackmore’s partner in DEEP PURPLE.

The album will be out as both a regular CD and a digipak deluxe edition with a bonus DVD which holds the videos for “Dancer And The Moon” and “The Moon Is Shining”, plus an in-depth interview with Ritchie and Candice.
