YNGWIE MALMSTEEN TO RELEASE “WORLD ON FIRE” ON JUNE 1ST
Guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen will release his album World On Fire on June 1st.
The Swedish guitarist says he spent two years working on the record between tours – which he says made the songwriting process “inspiring.”
Malmsteen says, “I spent two years working on it, touring, recording, touring, recording. And that’s actually much better in a way.
Back in the day I would write the songs then rehearse them with some musicians, then go and do a backing track and we’d record it, mix it, learn the songs to go play them on tour, then do it all again. That way isn’t necessarily conducive to making the best music.
So in a very backhanded way, this weird twist of fate in the music industry has actually made it a more inspiring environment. I can write anytime and record anytime.
My recording studio is always open, 24 hours. I can just record when I want and it’s a beautiful thing.”
World On Fire can be pre-ordered through Amazon.
