My rural hubby and I are long-time Yanni fans. Yanni’s music is a great backdrop for a romantic evening or just the right notes for relaxing moment. So… we were super excited to hear about Yanni’s new release Truth of Touch.
This is Yanni’s first instrumental release of original compositions in over eight years and is a return to the genre Yanni helped create and advance… and it certainly does not dissapoint!
This is not necessarily the Yanni of old, though (the Yanni of the 90’s that is…) it is a more evolved, electro album with an uplifting vibe.
As expected, though, it is a great, relaxing soundtrack that offers an upbeat, energizing feeling while listening to– the old sound with a modern twist.
Yanni explains, “I work the rhythms in this album. There is a beautiful complexity in these rhythms, a new sound design. I think the melodic content is very strong and very memorable. I was having fun with this album and that’s going to become apparent.”
My favorites on the track include “Long Way Home” and “Secret.” You can listen to a sneak peek of the album on Amazon This an album we’ll enjoy again and again, adding a great ambience to any day.
Yanni is complementing the release of his new album with a world tour. Check out http://yanni.com/tour/ for tour dates and cities.
