Let me start a new thread about my upcoming debut solo album, if I may be so humble. Wink

http://www.excelsior-recordings.com/2015/04/yorick-van-norden-met-eclectisch-debuut-toert-met-anne-soldaat-en-deelt-eerste-video/



"Bittersweet is the music of Yorick van Norden, the Dutchman who as a young man found his way to the stage with the band The Hype and debuts on Excelsior Recordings later this year. Yorick excels in writing catchy tunes like they used to in the sixties and seventies; jolly and careless on first listen, but in Yorick's case always layered. And they effortlessly stick in your head as well.

'Gonna Try For The Sun' is a classic example of such a song. Like a Disney film starring Harry Nilsson jamming with Fela Kuti and Van Dyke Parks' violins. It's the precursor of the upcoming album 'Happy Hunting Ground',
recorded in association with renowned indie producer Frans Hagenaars at Amsterdam's SSE Noord studios.
This week Yorick will start touring the Netherlands as a one-man-band support to Anne Soldaat (Daryll-Ann, Jason Falkner). Later he'll be joined by his own band featuring Maarten Kooijman (Johan, Anne Soldaat), Diets Dijkstra (Johan), Arjen de Bock (Bewilder, Wooden Saints) and Kees Schaper (Tim Knol, The Miseries, Tangarine)."

Here's the first video, to an album track called 'Gonna Try For The Sun':

Hope you like it.

Cheers,

Yorick

Thanks a lot! It's so nice how a song and recording can travel all around the globe with the internet nowadays. A couple of days ago I got mail from a Brazilian girl who told me how much she loved the song etcetera, amazing isn't it?
