This lady sure keeps her promises. When singer-songwriter Mrs. X first announced her “pop à la carte“ project, she promised her fans something new from the “à la carte” menu every month throughout 2017. And, Mrs. X is a woman of her word.
One month after the successful release of her newest “pop à la carte” single, “80 Miles Away,” which is blasting its way onto the airwaves, gaining airplay and creating quite a stir in Europe, Africa and North America, her follow up single, “He Plays Rock ‘n’ Roll” is out.
“He plays rock ‘n’ Roll“ is now available for immediate downloading on iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay, iGroove and any other global download site. You can also stream it on Spotify, Deezer, Tidal and all the other popular streaming platforms.
For “He Plays Rock ‘n’ Roll,” Mrs. X has put the band back together, Sefi Carmel, Jon Hockings, Felix Brüske and Christopher Langer for starters. In fact, over forty musicians from around the world are contributing to Mrs. X’s “pop à la carte” project, to help keep the music coming. Working with such an international team is business as usual for Mrs. X who is quickly becoming a new global symbol of pop music.
The result is a sultry, hard driving classic rock track. That’s right, for “He Plays Rock and Roll” Mrs. X takes a brief excursion beyond her signature “pop à la carte” style for some good ol rock ‘n’ roll. Call it “Rock à la carte” and stand back rock lovers, because this one lives up to its title.
“He Plays Rock ‘n’ Roll” is the heart rending story of a man striving for greatness at the one thing he loves, willing to face all obstacles, even if it means being ostracized by society. It could be the love of art, or science, or business, but in this case it is music, and in spite of all his faults and defects, when he picks up his guitar, all else is forgotten and forgiven, because he sure can play rock ‘n’ roll.
Mrs. X admires people who pursue their dreams. “This song has a special place in my heart,” she says. “I am attracted to people who are honest with themselves and are courageous enough to look inside themselves for encouragement. After all, I, too, am a dreamer in the midst of pursuing my own destiny by living my passion every day.
“But, passion and dedication aren’t enough. I have so many musical artists to thank for their help and unflagging support, beginning as always with Sefi Carmel, the wizard who puts the magic in all my tracks. He and his whole staff at Soundtracks Studio in London are the ones who make the music shine.” Sefi mixed and mastered “He Plays Rock ‘n’ Roll.”
This is an emotion packed song about a man, sung by a woman. Not an easy task. The wildly inventive guitar licks that London sensation Jon Hockings brings are an essential component to the explosive power this song exudes. His guitar riffs get your pulse pounding and your feet dancing.
Mrs. X is grateful to Keith George for meticulously going through every word of the song, helping her refine and polish her lyrics. Also, she sends a big thanks to Oliver Krato for his exquisite cover photography.
As of today, Mrs. X’s ‘Rock à la carte’ single “He Plays Rock ’n’ Roll” is available for immediate downloading on iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay, iGroove and any other global download site. You can also stream it on Spotify, Deezer, Tidal and all the other popular streaming platforms.
“Come on,” says Mrs. X, “let´s ‘rock à la carte.’” Rock on!
