Chanticleer releases new genre-bending album - Someone New
Date: October 18, 2013
Someone New is the ground-breaking new album from Chanticleer. Chanticleer has teamed with some of today's most brilliant arrangers to craft a collection of Jazz, Pop, Indie-Rock and Gospel songs that has stunned the a cappella world. Someone New features works by Dave Brubeck, June Carter Cash, Elbow, Peter Gabriel, Gotye, Freddie Mercury, M83, Tom Waits and more.
The original inspiration for this album came from listening to our basso profondo, Eric Alatorre, improvising low notes and bass lines to the car radio while on tour. His low range is a rarity that we wanted to capture and celebrate, and we wanted to have fun doing it. That spark of an idea turned into Someone New.
Since 1978, Chanticleer has tackled an ever-expanding repertoire; our vision for Someone New is to continue that tradition. We had a blast recording, and we hope you love it.
