Calling all a-ha and Morten Harket fans to celebrate “Out Of my Hands”
a-ha frontman released his new solo album “Out Of My Hands” in parts of Europe a few weeks ago. This week, the album will get a broader release for the album and allows those of us in North America to finally have an avenue to purchase the album as an “Import”. It is a shame we still have no idea about when the album will get its much deserved album in the US. Judging by the fact that landmark a-ha albums such as “Minor Earth Major Sky” and “Foot of the Mountain” did not get released in the US, American fans should not hold their breath for this. We do hope that Universal Music will surprise those of us in the US and give us this gem of an album from one of the most talented vocalists in the music business.
The music of a-ha has been a regular staple on Radio Creme Brulee ever since we launched back in early 2007. We also take pride in being the only American radio station to celebrate the legacy of a-ha – as opposed to celebrating a single song (I think we all know what that song is!). We were not really holding our breath for the new Morten Harket solo album. His first two solo albums (in English) were very MOR and hence it didn’t leave us much to get excited about. With “Out Of My Hands“, we see Morten Harket boldly venturing into electronic pop territory and fortunately, it really works! True to our commitment to showcasing the legacy of a-ha and Morten Harket, we are happy to announce the celebration of “Morten Harket” week on Radio Creme Brulee.
As part of “Morten Harket” week, we are accepting requests for ANY song off the new Morten Harket album “Out Of My Hands” (including the sublime bonus track “Undecided”). But we want to make this even more interesting. Send us an audio recording of your “voice request” of the song by Morten Harket that you would like to see played on Radio Creme Brulee. The “voice request” should be not more than 20 seconds long. We will play your voice request before the song. Take this opportunity to celebrate one of your favorite vocalists and while doing so, get your voice heard on a global broadcast. You can listen to our station from anywhere in the world via www.radiocremebrulee.com. We are accepting requests from all corners of the globe. We will tell you in advance on what day we plan to play your request. We will play your request 8 times on that day.
So how do you do this? Here goes:
What do you need for a record request?
