Myon today treats the band's loyal fans with a brand new single release: “That Was Yesterday.”
The song is an updated version of Foreigner's smash hit from 30 years ago. "That Was Yesterday"
will be the second cover release by Myon during the group's almost 20 years of history. Keyboardist Mika Pohjola comments:
“We just had to release 'That Was Yesterday' as a single, because when I heard Marco Mannermaa’s interpretation I felt we had a version that would respect the original and combine the song with a modern sound."
This is the summer of Myon: soon after the single's release, the band's 5th album, "Vitalworks," will be released. According to guitarist Jyrki Laiho, the reasons for the album’s delay were simple: “The album has been recorded and mixed thrice so now we know we’ve done the best we can and the songs can work even when it comes to the most critical of listeners. In the current state of music business, more accurately in our situation, we could never afford to release something
done medium well.”
The cover art for the single and the upcoming album is in the hands of Uruguayan artist Tamara Picardo from Upon Shadows. More...
