Blackmore Night - moon is shiningFrontiers Records is pleased to announce the digital release of the first single from BLACKMORE’S NIGHT new album “Dancer and the Moon” entitled “The Moon Is Shining (Somewhere Over the Sea)“. This beautiful new song 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 single can be downloaded now from every fine shop such as iTunes or Amazon and streamed legally via Spotify and Deezer. It is also possible to enjoy a sample of the song, following this link:

Dancer and the Moon” will be released on June 11th in North America and June 14th in Europe in regular cd configuration and deluxe edition in digipak, including a bonus DVD featuring a 40 mins “making of the album” documentary and acoustic versions of “The Spinner’s Tale”, “Somewhere Over The Sea/Moon Was Shining”, “The Ashgrove” and “Queen For A Day”.
