LAST AUTUMN'S DREAM, the new melodic rock "supergroup" featuring famed Swedish singer Mikael Erlandsson together with former FAIR WARNING guitarist Andy Malecek plus three-quarters of EUROPE — Mic Michaeli (keyboards), John Leven (on bass) and Ian Haugland (on drums) — have signed a deal with Frontiers Records. The group's self-titled debut album will be released on January 19, 2004.
The idea for the band came about when Mikael's record company in Japan suggested he join forces with the fantastic guitar player Andy Malecek who enjoyed great success in the German hard rock band FAIR WARNING. Mikael and Andy were both hooked by the idea and a plan for the album began to grow.
Mikael's production companies in Sweden — XTC Productions/Studio in Stockholm and Sunday Music in Gothenburg — also supported the idea and they turned to Ian Haugland, Mic Michaeli and John Levén from EUROPE and asked them if they were interested. After listening to Mikael and Andy's excellent material, they all decided to join in and the band LAST AUTUMN'S DREAM was born.
The album was recorded in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Berlin and includes the following eleven tracks:
01. Again and Again
02. Doin' Time (exclusive bonus track for Europe)
03. Guardian Angel
04. Break The Chains (Of Destiny)
05. Blink Of An Eye
06. Talk To Me
07. The One
08. I Never Let You Go
09. High Up
10. Movin' On
11. Going Home
