Christmas is approaching and publishers are preparing for the new record editions of the high season. After summer, it feels good to come back to the couch and listen to a CD of our favorite artists. In the midst of release, many are returning and first try a single and then release a new album if there is considerable success. But others insist on satisfying their most loyal following with new song sets.
Eurovision winners continue their careers with new forays. Recently, Celine Dion presented us her Courage in two editions, the regular one and a Deluxe with 4 more songs. Tanel Padar, Estonia's first and only winner, makes his foray into Paris on his latest album. Mans Zelmerlow returns to albums with Time, the eighth studio album and debuted at # 18 on the Swedish chart. Another winner, Conchita Wurst, in a very different record of the ballad with which she won Eurovision and the last album returns with Truth Over Magnitude (TOM) in which she expresses her constant search and means WURST values any compromises.
The month of November will start off very lively for the Irish Westlife who are back with their fellow ESC participant Nicky Byrne with the expected album Spectrum. From next door, from the UK, runner up Michael Ball is also back. Back Together with Alfie Boe, they revisit musical themes in what is expected to be a big hit in Her Majesty's country. Cliff Richard and the Shadows publish a 2 CD collection: The Best of The Rock 'n' Roll Pioneers.
From Belgium and the Netherlands we reach Laura Tresoro's debut album which tries to overcome her Limits; Straight to you from OG3NE; the return of the Clouseau. A good three years after 'Clouseau Danst', Clouseau is back with their thirteenth Dutch-language album, called 'Tweesprong'. It has become a very honest and emotional album, and Koen and Kris sincerely think that they have never had such a collection of impressive songs on one album. And they don't say that because that is often the classic promo talk: you just feel that they are really proud of their new album, perhaps the most proud of their long career. Honesty, warmth and sometimes coldness, zest for life and sometimes doubt, deep joy and sometimes bitter disappointment: all those emotions have their place on 'Tweesprong', within 14 fantastic good songs.
