“We are always exploring new ways to express our music,” said Phil Mitchell “Across the Danube” https://youtu.be/FDzKcls5XHQ was released with the album. It is a song that features Natasha Shayenne from the Ukraine on lead vocals and Alvaro Soto on lead guitar. “The song is a perfect example of how we were reaching out”, said Phil. ” I wrote the song about crossing the Danube River in the Ukraine. It is such a big river that you either make it across or you perish.” Phil explained that only later did he find out that Natasha grew up on the Danube River or a war would break out. “It caught us all by surprise,” explained Phil. “Natasha was in Kyiv when it started and finally ended up in Odessa. People from Mariupol were crossing the Danube River to go safely into Romania.” With a beautiful vocal and Pink Floyd like guitar solos, the song really stands out and asks the question of “Why?”.
“Give to the Galaxy” is a new venture by the band. Phil explained, “I looked at the war and planet and realized that we should be preserving all life here. If others can do it in the galaxy, why can’t we?” Earth Day is coming up on April 25. Phil added, “If people would just spend one trip looking at the stars and all that beauty, they would realize that we are just as beautiful as a planet. It is worth fighting for its survival in the future.” Phil Mitchell Quote: “The planets and sun are there to help support life on Earth. We are just part of a garden that surrounds a Living Spring. It is life itself that is the driving force of the Universe. It is up to us to help preserve this garden.” The quote inspired Phil to write the song.
This is the fifth album by the band. Www.philmitchellband.com With over 66 songs, Phil has written about every type of music.
