Frontiers Press Release




While preparing for brand new European tour, Mike Tramp, former singer of White Lion and Freak of Nature, decided to look through his archives and compile some of the songs that were either demoed or recorded during the sessions of his solo-albums and simply were "left behind" for various reasons. Hence the titles of the new album "Songs I Left Behind". "Looking back at it, it is not that these songs are any better or worse than the material that ended up on the albums but they simply did not make it on the albums at that time”, says Tramp. “Sometimes a song just does not fit the sequence or the mood of the album even though it is a great song. Listening back to them I realized that this material was still better than a lot of the albums that are being released today and also felt that I had to get these out of the way before I could start working on new material". Ranging back from 1992 to 2002, these songs are unique and classic and will leave any Tramp-fan beaming with happiness. A welcome bridge to the next studio-album which will be released in 2005 on Frontiers Records.


Full tracklisting of "Songs I Left Behind" is as follows: Sometimes (click to hear an Mp3 sample); Do It While You Can (click to hear an Mp3 sample); Over And Out (click to hear an Mp3 sample); Love Won't Wait On Me, If I Was Real, One For Anger, Two For Pain, Before The Night, I Won't Walk Away, Show Me, I'll Be There, I Don't Believe Anymore, What If I, Love Me Somebody, Think About The Times, Falling Down, Darkness. Frontiers Records will release the album in the whole of Europe on December the 6th 2004. In the meanwhile, the European tour started finally last week with guitar ace Lance Keltner joining the Tramp-ship. "This set will feature many songs I couldn't do on earlier tours and is also the longest set we have played so far", says Tramp who is thrilled to have such a killer band also featuring Kasper Foss on drums and Claus Langeskov on bass.
