While 2021 finds Principe Valiente working on their fourth full-length album, it also marks the 10-year anniversary of their self-titled debut. To celebrate this, the band’s record label Aenaos Records and singer Fernando Honorato decide to make some special versions of the album’s most prominent works and release them as a digital EP during the summer.
Aiming to emanate warmth, these versions are built on basic instruments including piano and acoustic guitars, enriched with digital string sounds. In collaboration with Chicago based mixer Adam K. Stilson, the songs reach a level of intimacy new to the audience. These 5 tracks are a fine collection of tunes made for loving, reflection and contemplation through nights, days, and dawns.
1. The Night – 10 years alternative version
2. Stay (strings theme) – 10 years alternative version
3. In My Arms – 10 years alternative version
4. Before You Knew Me – 10 years alternative version
5. One More Time – 10 years alternative version
