New Album ‘The Ballads VI’ Out April 21 on Steamhammer/SPV

European Tour Dates Begin in April!

Today, with another soon-to-be-celebrated ballads album on the way, Axel Rudi Pell shares the single “Morning Star” along with a lyric video.

The single appears on ‘The Ballads VI’ to be released April 21st on Steamhammer/SPV which can be pre-ordered HERE

Axel Rudi Pell on the track: “Lyrically, ‘Morning Star’ is about a love doomed from the start. Musically a typical ARP ballad with a very emotional guitar solo from me at the end. The solo is taken from my demo version that I recorded at home.”

Watch the lyric video for “Morning StarHERE

Ballads play a very special role in the history of rock music.

For one, they document the emotional side of the genre and show that behind (almost) every rocker`s hard chest beats a soft heart. Secondly, those quieter songs are being played by radio stations without rock-affinity โ€“ and are loved by listeners for their emotional depth. Additionally, in an increasingly hectic world, ballads offer brief moments of pause, of reflection on the essential things in life.

So, it is no wonder that the ballad compilations of Axel Rudi Pell are an absolute success. Over 250,000 copies have been sold of โ€˜The Ballads Iโ€™ (1993) to โ€˜The Ballads Vโ€™ (2017) alone. And nine of the current Top-10 most streamed Pell songs on Spotify are ballads! So it comes as no surprise that fans of the Bochum guitarist and songwriter regularly push for a continuation of this release series.

On April 21, 2023 โ€˜The Ballads VIโ€™ will be released on CD, double vinyl LP, and digital download, as always, via Steamhammer/SPV, and will come with a few small surprises.

Not only is โ€˜The Ballads VIโ€™ the latest edition of the popular ARP โ€˜The Balladsโ€™ series, but also the direct successor to his latest studio album, โ€˜Lost XXIIIโ€™, which landed at #2 on the official German album sales charts in April 2022. This exciting new compilation comes with a total of 13 ballads โ€œmade by ARP,โ€ five of them being brand new recordings.

Axel Rudi Pell sums up his growth as a songwriter and musician, โ€œLooking back, there is not a single ballad during the almost 35 years of my solo career that I need to be ashamed of, quite the contrary: some of them are still among my favourite songs today.”
