The new arrangement of Pink Floyd's album, Dark Side of the Moon, will be released this year.
This project, one of the biggest projects of Nguyen Le, French and Vietnamese ancestry musician and guitarist, and Siggi Loch, director of the ACT music company in Germany, was started at the Dark Side Of The Moon 40th anniversary on March 17th.
“It is the idea of Siggi Loch and me. We will record the new version in May and release it at the end of this year”, Nguyen Le shared.
Dark Side Of The Moon is one of Pink Floyd's most popular albums, most commercially successful and is frequently ranked as one of the greatest albums of all time.
With about 50 million copies sold and 800 weeks appearing on the Billboard Top LPs & Tapes chart, it is the second best-selling album, only after Thriller by Michael Jackson, and is the typical song of the progressive rock.
“Therefore, re-arranging this big song is a challenging work for us”, Nguyen Le said.
The new version will be premiered in Hamburg in mid-May by NDR Bigband, bandmaster Michaels Gibbs, drummer Gary Husband, the Italian famous singer Maria Pia de Vito and many famous artists of Jazz, as well as guitarist Nguyen Le. It will be a ‘new dish’ for both artists and audiences who love this 40 year-old great song.
