Magenta : Lucky Man

Magenta is very excited to announce the release of their version of the wonderful Emerson, Lake and Palmer song “Lucky Man” as a download-only single. The song will be available exclusively from the band’s Bandcamp site at http://magenta.bandcamp.comimmediately.

The Magenta version will be available in 2 mixes - a full 7inch mix at £1.50 and an instrumental version at £1, or downloaded together for £2.50. It was originally slated to appear on the Classic Rock Presents Prog ELP tribute CD, compiled to tie in with ELPs triumphant appearance at the High Voltage Festival during the summer, but failed to appear following the unfortunate last minute cancellation of the project.

Magenta multi-instrumentalist Rob Reed takes up the story:
“We have given the song the full-on Magenta treatment, and we hope the fans – whether ours or ELPs – will enjoy what we have done with it. We all certainly felt it was too good to be left on the shelf. Our arrangement also has a Christmassy feel to it, so it seemed right to issue it in December.”

The band has also shot a video to go with the track, which is now available on the Magenta website at www.magenta-web.com , on Youtube at www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnlVlxy5E0I or in a higher quality version on Vimeo at http://vimeo.com/17457468

The band will return in earnest in 2011 with new music and a return to playing live, so watch out for more exciting news in the New Year!

Re: Magenta : Lucky Man

linky no worky. The bandcamp one leastaways.

But a great rendition. Very enjoyable.
