Legendary Dead Can Dance vocalist LISA GERRARD & Golden Globe Winner for ‘Gladiator’
unites efforts with MARCELLO DE FRANCISCI, long-time collaborator and award-winning composer,
for ‘Exaudia’ album, out August 26 via Atlantic Curve
Atlantic Curve, a London-based label subsidiary of Schubert Music Europe Group, is excited to announce the signing of world-renowned artist Lisa Gerrard – composer/singer for Dead Can Dance and Golden Globe Winner for the soundtrack to ‘Gladiator’ – in conjunction with Los Angeles-based composer/ record producer Marcello De Francisci, for the release of their second and much-anticipated album ‘Exaudia’.
Ms. Gerrard and Mr. De Francisci met many years ago whilst working on the soundtrack for ‘Kings‘, which initiated a multitude of collaborative efforts such as soundtrack scores and their first album ‘Departum‘. The first single from Exaudia, ‘Until We Meet Again’, will be released on June 17, 2022, the same date that the album becomes available for pre-order.
Atlantic Curve was formed as part of a new international structure featuring ten record labels established by Schubert Music Europe GmbH in 2020, which are internationally distributed by The Orchard, the world’s largest independent distributor. In an impressive start, the label has already released the Top 40 UK Alternative Chart album ‘KOMPROMAT’ by I LIKE TRAINS, the critically acclaimed ‘Live at Rockpalast’ album by German underground darling Laura Carbone, and the groundbreaking ‘Burn’ album by Lisa Gerrard and fellow Dead Can Dance bandmate Jules Maxwell.
Lisa Gerrard: “I met Marcello while I was composing for a film called Kings, he had wonderful engineering skills and I liked him as a person. After a while we decided to try composing together and went on to compose some film scores. I love the fact that Atlantic Curve do vinyl and were also very interested in pursuing the artistic side of the accompanying videos. They did a wonderful job promoting my last album ‘Burn’ using social media platforms and internet media”
Marcello De Francisci: “It has been an absolute gift to work alongside Lisa once again on this work, which we wrote very much with the intention to inspire her fan base both on the listening and cinematic end”
Daryl Bamonte (Atlantic Curve, Label Head / Schubert Music Publishing UK, Managing Director): “After the great success we enjoyed with the ‘Burn’ album, I was honoured when Lisa got in touch to propose releasing ‘Exaudia’ on Atlantic Curve. This album shows the immense range of both Lisa’s and Marcello’s talents”
Thomas Thyssen (Schubert Music Europe, Managing Director / Head of Recorded Music): “It is both, our pleasure and privilege, to be working with Lisa once more on her upcoming release alongside Marcello. And what an album it is! Lisa Gerrard- and Dead Can Dance fans are definitely in for a treat!”
