Our new single is "Somewhere Closer to the Sun". The song has a little west coast taste. You can find it on our new album.
Today, December the 15th, our new album "Meanwhile in the Cosy Garage" is officially released on iTunes (and all the download and streaming site).
Here's the trailer of Klang's new album, "Meanwhile in the Cosy Garage".
We are so happy to announce that « Meanwhile in the Cosy Garage », the new Klang album, will be released December the 15th. Produced by Thierry Plas, the ten songs are the result of two years work. As the cover picture (by Julien Englebert) suggests it, Klang didn’t made any album for a long time. But behind the walls, inside the cosy garage, the flame is still burning.
April 18, our new single "Cosy Garage" will be released. It will be on sale on this website at "Pay what you want" price.
"Pay what you want" doesn't mean the download is free, but that the buyer, not the seller, fixes the price. The purchaser will decide what amount he deems to be right, depending on his means and the value he perceives in the music.
This is great news for cheapskates, but we request that you participate according to your income and your desires. The "pay what you want" principle is based on solidarity, where everyone can access the same service, regardless of their financial situation.
Klang doesn't have a recording deal with a label. All the production, manufacturing and promotion costs are financed by the band.
"Pay what you want" leads the purchaser to question himself: how much do I give? What are my financial possibilities? How much does it cost to produce a song? To what extent can I or do I want to participate?
This is helping us getting away from a purely consumerist attitude, where buying songs is just a mere quick click of the mouse.
Klang has chosen Jude Production to take care of the band's booking. Jude Production is headed by Fanny Noel and is in charge with some very interesting belgian bands. Have a look at their website. With the new album "Meanwhile in the Cosy garage" awaited for spring 2014 and a serious booking agent to find gigs, next year will be very important for Klang.
Klaus Klang was interviewed by Marc Ysaye in his show "Les Classiques de Marc Ysaye" on Classic 21, the most important adult rock station in Belgium. Here's in the interview, in french.
