DRACO ROSA RELEASES MAD LOVE LUXE ON VINYL
THE REMASTERED VERSION OF HIS ACCLAIMED 2004 ALBUM
MIAMI (April 20, 2020) ¬ The Puerto Rican singer, songwriter, producer and actor Draco Rosa releases Mad Love Luxe , the remastered vinyl double-LP version of his critically acclaimed 2004 album Mad Love .
With three songs in Spanish and 13 in English, Mad Love is an engrossing masterpiece in which Draco Rosa lays his feelings bare and approaches his material with complete honesty and authenticity. The single “ Más y Más ” received the 2004 Latin GRAMMY® for Best Music Video, and was nominated for Song of the Year and Record of the Year.
As a bonus for his fans, Draco Rosa is adding two radically different versions of the album tracks “ This Time ”, which is from a live performance during one of his recent tours and “ Lie Without a Lover, ” recorded during a rehearsal at Phantom Vox Studios. “ We always have the rehearsals recorded properly in the studio. So anytime anything happened, it was documented properly. There’s so much music, and it sounds so good, that I’m happy we were able to place it there ,” Draco adds.
Remastered by the 11-time GRAMMY®-winner Bob Ludwig, Mad Love Luxe envelops us in Draco’s immersive, mystical fusions of rock, blues and tropical sounds. “ I wouldn’t mind putting Mad Love out as an instrumental album, because the music is so beautiful ,” Draco says. The album was orchestrated by Van Dyke Parks, who has worked with such artists as the Beach Boys, Randy Newman and Little Feat.
Other standout musicians on this album include guitarist Rusty Anderson (Paul McCartney), drummer Carla Azar (Jack White) and drummer Frank Ferrer (Guns ‘n’ Roses).
Featuring ample liner notes and sporting vinyl that’s pink (or rosa in Spanish, in honor of his surname), Mad Love Luxe is the kind of album that makes music-lovers rediscover why they fell in love with putting on headphones in a quiet place and dropping the needle on the record.
This is Draco Rosa ’s second major re-release with Ludwig. In 2018, he unveiled Vagabundo 22 , a remaster of his 1996 album Vagabundo , which is considered one of the most influential records in Latin alternative rock. The vinyl version of Vagabundo 22 has become a highly sought-after collectors’ item.
