BLACKMORE'S NIGHT Releases 'The Moon Is Shining' Single

Frontiers Records has announced the digital release of the first single from BLACKMORE'S NIGHT's 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 [Night, BLACKMORE'S NIGHT singer and Ritchie's wife] and I thought were very melodic and haunting," says BLACKMORE'S NIGHT guitarist 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 and Amazon and streamed legally via Spotify and Deezer. It is also possible to enjoy a sample of the song by using the audio player below.

"The Moon Is Shining (Somewhere Over the Sea)" audio sample:

"Dancer And The Moon" will be released on June 11 in North America and June 14 in Europe in regular CD configuration and deluxe edition in digipak, including a bonus DVD featuring a 40-minute "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". The album will also be made available in a super-deluxe edition strictly limited to 2000 copies packaged in a polyston frame with the cover artwork printed on canvas and including a black tote bag with BLACKMORE'S NIGHT artwork, four BLACKMORE'S NIGHT pins, a certificate of authenticity and, of course, the CD/DVD edition.
