Hey, BIG thanks to all of you for liking BARON ZERO's new single "Neverafter" on Facebook.
Since you guys obviously have outstanding tastes in music, here is an exclusive link to the track which has come out this January.
And just because it's you, I also added in a remix of the previous single 'No Easy Way' by producer Stuart Epps of Robbie Williams and Led Zeppelin's fame. Is this still Christmas or what ?
Just press "download", sit back and jiiiiiiiiiiingle all the way !
True enough, the mastering took slightly longer than I triumphantly anticipated in my post last summer (although in all fairness I did not anticipate the subsequent laptop meltdown) but it is finally done.
The album will come out end of March and in the meantime the very britpop-esque new single "Neverafter" is already available in all your favorite digital stores.
Still dazed from last year's celebration ? Just pop in another aspirin and click on play.
Welcome to my underground lair !
Some people say that BARON ZERO sounds like Lenny Kravitz meets Robbie Williams, with Dave Gahan looking over their shoulders and a younger Jimmy Page DJ'ing in the background ...
These guys probably meet all the time at one of these glamorous L.A. cocktail parties.
But since neither you nor I were there to witness, the next best things is to press PLAY.
The day is November 26, 2008 and I'm sitting in the Taj Mahal hotel as the terror attack which would claim the lives of 164 people is about to begin. As the first gunshots explode a few meters away, I start running in the opposite direction. Only to find myself injured and quickly unable to walk anymore.
Hopping on one leg, I manage to find a place to hide from the shootings. As I remain there the whole night, unaware that a few floors above parts of the hotel are already in flames, I can only think of 2 things: that my 2 year old son will never have memories of his father and that no one will ever hear the songs I have kept in me for so long.
In the early morning, as I finally find my way out of the smoking building into the light of another day, l promise myself these steps will be the first ones towards something different. In many ways recovering from the operation on my leg is the easiest part. This night has planted a seed inside my soul that nothing can root out, forcing me to face the dreams I let slip away long ago. What if the life I have built for myself stood in the way of these dreams ?
Reinvention has been a long time coming, marked by the adoption of a little Indian baby, a move back to Europe and several jobs. And weighted down by more breakdowns and relapses than I care to remember. But the songs are finally here to be heard. Full of a devil may care attitude which cannot quite conceal the fact that something is broken deep inside, the cracks and the scars which we all share.
And knowing full well that since we all have to go down someday, we might as well go down in style.

|So you want to cover the latest release of BARON ZERO ? Well, I cannot thank you enough for this but I sure can try to make your life easier.
I have been using REVERBNATION for a few years now and I truly believe it is one of the best (free) promotional package available for independent musicians.
Amongst the many tools the platform offers, they have recently added the possibility to create (in just over 5 minutes) an Android app featuring your music, photos, videos and anything else you feel is important for fans to grab what your band is about.
So, without further ado here is the brand new BARON ZERO android app as a free download.
