A very special compilation will be released on November 27th, 2020. On “Melodies In Black” MONO INC. collected all of their ballads on one double album and even re-recorded some of them. And in addition it contains a brand new song!
"Melodies In Black" takes the listener on a romantic, musical journey through time through the entire discography of MONO INC. and invites you to dream, reflect, enjoy and "come to rest". A total of 34 tracks made it onto this heartwarming compilation including the previously unreleased song "Scared", a profound piano-driven ballad by lyric magician Martin Engler.
But that’s not all. For this album the band even re-recorded well-known and beloved classics like “Life Hates You” and “Just Because I Love You”. Also the audience’s favorite “An Klaren Tagen” was recorded in a new, sentimental duet version with drummer Katha Mia, which the quartet played at the three exclusive “The Raven Flies Again” concerts in August 2020. Mastermind Martin Engler introduced this special song with the words “How much closeness does a person need?” and reported about Erna, who died of loneliness in a retirement home during the corona pandemic.
So “Melodies In Black” is not just a collection of ballads. It’s an unique compilation, which will make the hearts of the fans beat faster with the newly arranged songs and the new track.
It will be released in a high-quality digipak and also in a limited fan box that contains many special items, such as an incense stick holder and also an exclusive book with german translations of all English titles written by Martin himself.
