Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the premiere of “The Moon Is Shining (Somewhere Over the Sea),” a new track by Ritchie Blackmore’s band, Blackmore’s Night.
The song is from the band’s new album, Dancer and the Moon, which will be released June 11 by Frontiers Records.
Good news for Blackmore fans: Dancer and the Moon, the band’s eighth studio album, features several instrumentals, including “Galliard” and “Carry On… Jon,” which Blackmore wrote as a tribute to the late Jon Lord of Deep Purple.
The album will be released in two editions: a regular CD and a deluxe digipak with a bonus DVD with music videos of “Dancer and the Moon” and “The Moon Is Shining,” which happens to be the album’s first single. It also features an extensive interview with Blackmore and Candice Night.
