Brazilian singer and composer Edu Falaschi (ANGRA, ALMAH) will release his acoustic solo album, "Moonlight", on May 20 via Pride & Joy Music (Europe), Test Your Metal Records (North America), King Records (Japan) and Substancial Music (Brazil).
"Moonlight" is the first Edu Falaschi solo album dedicated to the 25th anniversary of his career as a professional singer and composer. The album is a "best-of" collection and it presents acoustic versions of the most significant songs of Falaschi's career in ANGRA, ALMAH and more. All the material was rearranged for the voice with piano, acoustic guitar and orchestra.
"Moonlight" was recorded in São Paulo and Jundiaí (Brazil) at Wink Studio and mixed and mastered by Caio Cesar. The material was recorded with several important Brazilian musicians such as Tiago Mineiro (piano), maestro Adriano Machado (strings arrangements), and two special guests — Joao Frederico Sciotti, known as Derico (flutes and saxophone), and Sandami (percussion).
The cover artwork was created by Brazilian designer Gustavo Sazes (ALMAH, KAMELOT, SEPULTURA, ARCH ENEMY, MORBID ANGEL, MANOWAR).
