GATHERING OF KINGS To Release "First Mission" Album In January; Cover Artwork, Tracklisting Revealed
November 18, 2018, 5 months ago
Gathering Of Kings debut album First Mission will arrive in late January. The album was produced, mixed, and mastered by Thomas Plec Johansson (Soilwork, The Night Flight Orchestra, Nocturnal Rites, Dynazty) at The Panic Room in Skövde, Sweden.
All songs were written by Victor Olsson except "The Runaway", which was written by Maurice Gibb and Robin Gibb from Bee Gees. The song is a cover of Carolas hit single from 1986. So that's a tribute to the best Swedish female singer of all time.
The cover artwork was created by the German artist Markus Vesper.
An official video for the upcoming fourth single "Love Will Stay Alive" to be released next week. Until then you can listen to the three previous singles on Spotify.
