Blackmore’s Night Debuts New Take Of ‘Greensleeves’, Video Ahead Of Classic Album’s Re-Issue

Jan. 16 — Blackmore’s Night is set to re-issue its 1997 debut album, Shadow of the Moon this spring, and in anticipation the band has released an updated take of the timeless standard ‘Greensleeves‘ this month, along with a companion lyric video.

The song was featured as part of the album in its original release, though the band has been performing the song live for more than 40 years.

The album’s re-issue is scheduled for March 10 through earMusic. The take on the song featured in the forthcoming re-issue is the exact same as the original performance in terms of its general presentation. The only difference between the two takes is that the new take has been fully remixed and presented in HD audio. The same applies to the rest of the record’s songs.

Shadow of the Moon will be available on CD and vinyl. Its track listing is noted below. The CD will also feature a companion DVD that follows the creation of Shadow of the Moon and a handful of music videos for songs from the album.

As an added bonus, two copies of the album’s vinyl re-issue will have “golden tickets” that will give those who find them, a free signed Ritchie Blackmore Olympic white Fender Stratocaster guitar.
