[News] Melanie Mau & Martin Schnella to release “Through The Decades”

Melanie Mau and Martin Schnella announce the forthcoming release of “Through the Decades” on 22nd August 2020.

Speaking of their strange experiences during lock-down, Martin explains: “Melli and I tried to be productive and creative and we decided to complete our new Acoustic Cover CD “Through The Decades” earlier than usually planned. We spent lots of time arranging and recording this new album and we are really happy with the result. It is the first album we worked together more as a team than before. Simon, Lars and Mathias got more involved in the arranging process and we are happy to be able to present you so many new songs of different styles in our acoustic sound.”

2. Running Up That Hill (Kate Bush)

Martin continues: “We also decided to re-record our Kansas Cover of Miracles Out Of Nowhere. This song means so much to us and it grew and became one of our most important covers to play live in our concerts. Now it is a very honest and live-vibey version including Lars on bass, Simon on percussion and Mathias on 3rd vocals.”
