ALBUM SERENITY OUT TODAY.

STASAN´s new album SERENITY is published today November 26, 2018 on the label megabien music.

In comparison to STASAN´s previous two studio albums, SERENITY is certainly a more rock-style album, and is closer to STASAN’s roots, the rock of the 60’s. STASAN’s lyrics of the full-length studio album were inspired by current political events such as in “REFUGEE”, “THE LORD” or “STILL ALIVE”, but also by day-to-day life observations like in “DON’T GIVE UP” or “GET YOURSELF ANOTHER MAN”. But, there are also some love songs included, “YOU AND ME BABE” and “AMELIE”.

And as a change from his previous albums, SERENITY also includes instrumentals, such as “THE RIDE” which is a collaboration with Minneapolis-born and Mexico-based singer-songwriter Todd Clouser, Grammy Award winning drummer Hernan Hecht and renowned Mexican bass player Aaron Cruz. The other tracks on SERENITY feature some talented French musicians, among them Franck Ridacker on drums (Johnny Hallyday, Tony Joe White, Calvin Russl, etc.) and guitarist Marc Jallais (Christophe Mae), but also touring/studio musicians Stephane Allemand on bass, and especially the very talented, young guitar player Sam Tallet. French background singers Coralie Pickles and Kinou Ridacker have tastefully contributed to four SERENITY tracks.

SERENITY has been recorded, mixed and mastered at the megabien studios in the Provence. Serenity is available worldwide on iTunes, Apple Music, Deezer, Amazon, and many more.

   

RELEASE OF SINGLE JEANNIE.

German born singer songwriter STASAN, now living in the sunny Provence in the South of France, releases his single JEANNIE on November 19, 2018, a pre-release from his third studio album SERENITY that will be published by megabien music on November 26, 2018.

JEANNIE written by STASAN is the result of his collaboration with French musicans: Franck Ridacker on drums, Stephane Allemand on bass and the very talented, young guitar player Sam Tallet. The song is about Jeannie, «the Lady in the bottle», which was a very successful TV series with Barbara Eden and Larry Hagman («Dallas») in the US and Europe in the sixties.

JEANNIE has been recorded, mixed and mastered at the megabien studios in the Provence.

OFFICIAL RELEASE OF NEW ALBUM "LE SUD".

The new studio album of megabien artist STASAN, produced in Minneapolis/USA, Odenwald/Germany and France (Corsica and Provence) will be released on December 29, 2017. All songs are again written by STASAN and are produced in Minneapolis/USA, Odenwald/Germany and France (Corsica and Provence). But “Le Sud” is not only about the South of France, it includes also songs translating STASAN’s relentless criticism of injustice and racism, as well as his message to build a world without hatred, such as “Running Out Of Time, or “There Was A Time” that describes the steal of Indian land in North America. This second studio album confirms STASAN’s unique, straightforward, personal songwriting and guitar style that is influenced by his musical life in Germany during the 60’s. The participation of musicians from Minneapolis, such as saxophonist David Eiland (David Bowie, Janet Jackson, Human League etc.…), and others from Germany and France have tastefully contributed to STASAN’s second album, amplifying its special style between Rock and groovin’ ballads.
