MOSCOW, October 24. /TASS/. Scottish rock band Nazareth is going to record a new album with their new vocalist Carl Sentance in 2017.
On October 25, the legendary rockers will play at the Crocus City Hall in Moscow. This will be their only show in Russia as part of the current European tour.
On the eve of the concert a TASS correspondent talked to Carl Sentance about the band’s new album and the show.
"We have been offered a few record deals and we start recording in January, and I write music as well as lyrics," Sentance said.
He promised that this time there won’t be any delays. Initially the band planned to start working in the studio early this year. Sentance said that the delay was not caused by any disagreements within the band.
"Everything is still great with the band we work together well," he said.
When asked about the coming show in Moscow Sentance said:
"The Moscow show will be one and half hours long with a lot of Naz hits with many heavy rock tunes. About 16 songs including This Flight Tonight, Changin' Times and Animals. We're back and ready to Rock Russia!"
Apart from singing with Nazareth Sentance is now involved in several other projects. In particular he is collaborating with Deep Purple’s keyboardist Don Airey, who will release his new solo album in 2017.
"Don's album is in progress but will take a little longer than January. I have been writing music with Don also," he said.
As a singer Carl Sentance collaborated with many legendary rock musicians. In the 1980-s he took part in a solo project of Black Sabbath’s bassist Terry Geezer Butler but those recordings were not released. When asked about the fate of those old tapes and whether classic rock fans have a chance to hear them one day the singer said:
"I don't know. I guess Geezer owns them (tapes -TASS) and don't think anything will come of them. At the time Geezer joined back up with Ozzy and I last spoke with Geezer in 1993," he said.
Nazareth is a Scottish hard rock band formed in 1968 by vocalist Dan McCafferty, bassist Pete Agnew, guitarist Manny Charlton and drummer Darrell Sweet. They are best known for their album Hair of the Dog (1975). Their best-known hit single was a cover of the ballad Love Hurts (1975).
