Denmark’s Michael Learns to Rock has released its 9th studio album, Still. The band is a special one, performing in English and seeing much of its popularity stem from eastern Asia. Their reworking of Jacky Cheung’s “Goodbye Kiss” as “Take Me to Your Heart” received 6 million paid downloads in the year 2006. MLTR has sold an estimated 11 million albums. In keeping with the band’s European tinged soft rock or pop rock style, the new album doesn’t disappoint. Below we have embedded an English language mini documentary on the making of the album which was recorded in Copenhagen and includes sound snippets from some of the album tracks.
Danish soft rock group Michael Learns to Rock which performs in English has had a dramatic career filled with many ups and downs. Of all the places in the world, the band became massive superstars in a most unexpected but most populated region—eastern Asia. The band came up with the name in keeping with phrases common at the time (1988), Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Johnny Hates Jazz, etc. MLTR is considered the most popular international act of all time in China. The group recently reworked a song from a Korean TV drama called Healer and featured Chinese singer Phoebe Yang. The song is bilingual, sung in English and Chinese, and MLTR has released a gorgeous music video (shot in China) which we embed below. The song is called “Eternal Love”. Enjoy.
