ISSA To Release Another World Album In June; "Armed & Dangerous" Music Video Streaming

AOR sensation Issa, aka Isabell Øversveen, announces the upcoming release of her latest album, Another World, slated to be released on June 7. This record marks the next exciting chapter in Issa's musical voyage.

Kicking off the journey is the release of the first single, "Armed & Dangerous", accompanied by a visually stunning video, available to watch below.

Issa describes the song as “a sexy hard rocker with a great melody and atmosphere. It's a great introduction the new album, I really hope the fans like it.”

Issa has etched her name as a leading force in the genre, captivating audiences worldwide with her commanding vocals and enthralling melodies. With a remarkable track record of eight albums released under the prestigious Frontiers Music, Issa consistently delivers music that strikes a chord with fans of melodic rock and AOR.

In discussing her latest musical endeavour, Issa commented: “The new album is my favourite yet, everything was recorded and written in house by Tom and James Martin. We went for a straight up 80s inspired AOR album with a few hard rockers in for good measure, think prime Bon Jovi, Richard Marx and Heart, with even a bit of synthwave in the production. Tom and James really capture the spirit of the 80s and prime melodic Rock. We were lucky to have some great guest musicians get involved, Melvin Brannon Jr, Dennis Butabi Borg, Pete Newdeck, josh Tabbie Williams Leon Winteringham, Phil o' Dea, and Robert Sall to name just a few amazing players.”

Another World follows the global triumph of her seventh studio album, Lights Of Japan, where Issa heralded a 'rebirth' of her sound, seamlessly blending influences from her roots with the evolving musical landscape. Once again, the new album showcases Issa's versatility and artistic growth.
