Guitar virtuoso and LGBT+ Rock Icon, Angel Vivaldi, has released released his highly anticipated EP ‘Away With Words Pt 2 ‘ today. To celebrate the long-awaited follow up to 2014 masterpiece, “Away With Words Pt 1“, Angel has enlisted the services of his fiercely fabulous drag alter-ego, NOVAGina for her first ever music video performance for new single “Nine“. Stream the new album, including “Nine” HERE and watch the incredible new video HERE or by clicking the image below.
Much like its predecessors, “Eight” and “Six“, the new track is yet another example of the mind-blowing diversity of Angel Vivaldi‘s talent. No two tracks on ‘Away With Words Pt. 2′ are the same, with each track exhibiting yet another completely different facet of Angel‘s playing, each completely different to the heavier rock output he has become so well known for. The dazzling musical opus takes the listener on a journey through latin/urban roots, elegant acoustic rock and outrageous funk-driven grooves and further cements him as one of the most talented and versatile guitarists in the world.
Speaking on his latest release, Angel shares
“Music should be fun, inspiring and rebellious. Sacrificing my integrity as an artist, especially to appease what is safe, isn’t an option. I’ll forever go through great lengths to honor a concept or idea because that’s the responsibility given to every artist who chooses to write music. How my music is perceived is none of my business, but how much of myself I devote to everything I do is. Whether it’s a song, a video production, a drag persona or being the best human I can be, I make sure to do it authentically and mindfully. I couldn’t be happier with Away With Words, Part 2 or the video for “Nine.”
|Away With Words: Part 2” is out today. Part 1 (2014) consisted of heavier yet melodic rock and metal while the newly announced Part 2 explores a wide range of genres including funk, latin, classical and acoustic. The concept is based on the yin/yang of what we are capable of – that we are more than just the one thing people see us as. Pre-orders for the upcoming release launched today and are available HERE.|
|Elaborating on his feelings about his upcoming EP, Angel continues,|
“Few words can describe what it feels like to finally share the full scope of this concept record 9 years after I started it. While the seeds I initially planted took longer to bear fruit, I’m grateful it took this long as it helped to make the grapes that much sweeter. Part 2 is an unexpected musical journey that has something on it for any lover of music.”
