New Blackmore's Night album
New record will feature Uriah Heep cover.
"It is a real pleasure to have this song covered by ‘Blackmore’s Night’, and Ritchie Blackmore is a guitarist, writer and performer that I rate very highly indeed. And now the "Man in Black,” is playing ‘Lady in Black’, and that is so cool!” says Mick Box.
There will also be a tribute to Jon Lord in the album's finale number "Carry On...Jon", which was penned by Blackmore in his memory.
The album will be the 8th by the band, which is composed of the former Deep Purple and Rainbow guitarist and his wife, vocalist Candice Night. Their songs are heavily influenced by music from the Renaissance.
