Robby Valentine Releases Vinyl And Scores Record Deal In Japan!
In the early 90’s, Robby Valentine had a huge hit with his debut single, ‘Over And Over Again’. The untitled debut album earned him the Silver Harp award and a loyal following in Japan. With the release of his latest album, ‘Bizarro World’, Valentine has found a renewed success with concerts at home and abroad, and above all a contract with one of the largest record companies in Japan: King Records
On March 2, 2016, King Records will release Valentine’s two latest albums, ‘Bizarro World’ and ‘The Queen Album’ as a double set which will include bonus tracks featuring a cover of David Bowie's ‘Life on Mars’. The Queen album is an ultimate homage to Queen; the original album has twenty-four numbers, but the Japanese edition will have twenty-five.
After the release of his debut album, Valentine’s career soared to great heights in Japan, where his popularity remained strong over the years, even more than in his own homeland. With the release of Bizarro World, (2014) the scales were balanced and within a month of the first pressing, the album sold out in Europe.
Bizarro World is an exceptional mix of pop and rock styles with a nice blend of influences from: Queen, Muse, and Adam Lambert. Reviews have been very positive, and in addition to signing with King Records, live shows are still in demand at home and abroad.
To celebrate the success of Bizarro World, it is now also available as a Vinyl!
A release party will be held on February 20, 2016 at ‘P3 - Purmerend - The Netherlands’. Naturally, Valentine will be supported by his top band: Andre Borgman (After Forever), Luuk van Gerven (After Forever, Karma Flow), Paul Coenradie (Aniday, Bert Heerink) and Johan Jay Jay Willems. Expect to be treated to more than two hours of a spectacular performance, spotlighting Bizarro World and Valentine’s previous albums.
