Bochum, Germany-based guitar wizard Axel Rudi Pell releases the first single and video today from new album “The Ballads V” today. For the first time ever in his almost thirty-year career as a solo artist, Axel Rudi Pell welcomes a special guest star on one of his albums: rock legend Bonnie Tyler has recorded a stunning duet with ARP’s longtime singer Johnny Gioeli.
Axel Rudi Pell is justly proud of his new single “Love’s Holding On” that drops today, saying: “Bonnie Tyler only records songs she personally likes. So I wrote this tune just for her and she really loved it. She came to the studio and we recorded it within a couple of hours. The result is amazing – another soon-to-be Pell classic in the making. If I hadn’t been a fan already, I would have turned into one instantly.”
New album “The Ballads V” will be released on April 21st, 2017 through SPV/Steamhammer as CD digipack (including poster), double gatefold purple vinyl, limited boxset, download, and stream.
