Norway-based artists Ledfoot & Ronni Le Tekrø will be releasing their second album together, Limited Edition Lava Lamp, on March 24, 2023 via TBC Records. It’s the sequel to A Death Divine, which arrived in 2021. The album will be released in various formats including a limited edition 180g vinyl gatefold in “lava lamp colors”. The single “Ego In The Coffin” is out now.
The album also includes a bluesy cover of “Sister,” from the movie The Color Purple.
Ronni Le Tekrø comments:
I was singing this song live in my own show, and wrote a new intro and slight rearrangement for the new album. The very last sentence of the lyrics had to be altered to make it be from a man to a woman. I loved the movie The Color Purple. It has such a strong message that I’ve always cherished and felt it could be rerecorded with a male singer. It is a gesture of love to all Sisters everywhere. You’re not alone, your brothers are here.
The album was produced by HP Gundersen with mastering by Winter Lazerus (Donald Fagen, Michael Jackson, Tom Waits, Pink Floyd), and the brought along Anders Odden (bass: Order, Cadaver, Magenta, Satyricon), Markus O Klyve (keyboards: Ronni Le Tekrø, EXIT), Trond Augland (drums: Hellbillies, Vidar Busk). HP Gundersen also played guitars and keyboards.
Ledfoot, aka Tim Scott McConnell is on vocals and shares about this collaboration:
After our debut album together, Ronni and I decided it was time to get serious and put a band together… AND WHAT A BAND! The result is LIMITED EDITION LAVA LAMP…get ready for a wild ride!
Ronni Le Tekrø agrees:
On our second album, we have been digging deeper. Exploring and uniting our different styles. With the help of our band, The Sailors, we had a great time recording this album during eight days. Engineer/coproducer Kjartan Hesthagen and producer HP Gundersen pushed the production into landscapes we’ve never been. Look out for the LIMITED EDITION LAVA LAMP. It will take you to Twin Peaks. Let your ears take you above and below.
