Mike Tramp Re-Records White Lion Classics For New Album
Former lead singer, Mike Tramp is set to release an entire album of White Lion songs on April 14. The title is Songs of White Lion and includes a newly released single of 1989’s “Cry For Freedom.”
He calls the time between 1983-1991 “a once-in-a-lifetime experience” and says he recorded the songs as close to the originals as possible. He said, “I am not 26 anymore, I don’t sing like I am 26, and I wouldn’t be doing justice to the songs or myself if I tried to sing like I am 26.”
He explained by saying: “I sing the songs that I wrote with Vito Bratta over 40 years ago exactly the way I am today. This is the only way I can embrace them and feel at home and be honest to myself and the songs.”
White Lion released their debut album, Fight To Survive, in 1985. And then had their breakthrough with the double-platinum-selling, Pride album, which produced two Top 10 hits: “Wait” and “When The Children Cry.”
Tramp will embark on the Songs of White Lion U.S. Tour in May as well as participate in the original Rock Meets Classic Tour in Germany this April.
