ISSA : ‘Queen Of Broken Hearts’ – new out 12.03.21 via Frontiers
Norwegian melodic rock queen Issa is back with her sixth album, ‘Queen of Broken Hearts’, which will be released on 12th March via Frontiers Music Srl.
Now based in the UK, Issa explains: “The vocals were recorded where I live in beautiful York. I also really loved using the scenery around us to make the video for my new single, ‘Angels Calling’! When recording the album, I found that I enjoyed the more challenging vocal lines where I can use my voice in ways I haven’t before. I love playing with vocal sounds and this album has more than enough headroom for that! It is also more symphonic than my previous records. If I can compare it to anything, I think my debut album, ‘Sign Of Angels’, would be somewhere near, except that I have had a decade of additional knowledge to put into it.”
A stunning vocalist, Issa has released five previous albums on Frontiers. Like those, ‘Queen Of Broken Hearts’ is a dream come true for fans of melodic rock with its huge vocals and soaring melodies, but it is arguably her most fully realised offering yet. She has once again partnered with Alessandro Del Vecchio to make the album and (as with 2018’s successful Run With The Pack’) an all-star team of musicians perform on it, with the line-up featuring Simone Mularoni of DGM (guitar), Andrea Torricini of Vision Divine (bass), Marco Di Salvia of Hardline (drums) and Del Vecchio on keyboards.
The musical growth of Issa over the years has been tremendous to see and hear.
Fans will reap the rewards with ‘Queen of Broken Hearts’, which is quite simply her best album yet.
