The Answer –the famous Irish hard rock band- announced that their new album ‘Solas’ is going to be released on October 28th through Napalm Records. ‘Solas’, the Gaelic word for “Light” and the title of the lead track of the album, is produced by Andy Bradfield and Avril Macintosh, who worked with the band in ‘Rise’ (2006). The frontman, Cormac Neeson, mentions that the inspiration for the new album was the premature birth of his son whose life was in danger during his first three months. The first single ‘Beautiful World’, which was written together with the producer of Massive Attack, Neil Davidge, is a classic rock song with intense atmospheric sound that reveals all the darkness and the toil Neeson was experiencing at that time.
