Read more about YNGWIE MALMSTEEN’s new album. ‘Blue Lightning’ will be released on March 29, 2019 through Mascot Records.
Only a few guitarists are known with only their first name. Yngwie is one of them. With ‘Blue Lightning’, Yngwie Malmsteen highlights not only his enduring dexterity and diversity, but also pays homage to those from the blues and rock worlds who have fueled his artistic spirit for so long.
Anyone who is expecting Yngwie to copy exactly the way the original versions sound is in for a shock. Because that is not what he has done. He has masterfully transformed classics like Smoke On The Water, Purple Haze and While My Guitar Gently Weeps into his own inimitable style, and wrote and recorded 4 new tracks for this album.
