Nature’s Light release details

blackmore's night - nature's light 2021 mediabook

The promised new Blackmore’s Night album will be called Nature’s Light and is scheduled for release on March 12, 2021 via Edel’s imprint earMusic.

Candice explains the title:

The story of Nature’s Light is the story of nature being the true queen and the simplicity and magic of everyday miracles that happen right before your eyes. If you feel stagnant or repressed in your surroundings, it is important to take a break from the mundane and go where your heart leads you. It allows you to recharge and begin again with fresh and renewed energy. For some it is the ocean, for some the woods, for some feeling the sun on your face. Our music is an escape from the stress and pressure of modern times. Journey back through time with us, to a simpler, magical time where music enters your heart and soul.

    I don’t like being negative, but man, her singing is dreadful.

    Uwe Hornung says:

    I’m glad that Candice und Ritchie have meanwhile obviously entrusted their children with the creation of their CD covers. Mom und Dad sing and play guitar, Autumn and Rory paint, Grandma Carol manages it all. Voilà, a cottage industry with family values!

    They really need a reality TV show: “Rocking Renaissance”, it could be a divine mix of The Partridge Family und Robin Hood.

    The mediabook will come with a pair of unisex tights for the thus inclined.

    Yep… & I think I can tell you where they got their muse from…


    The Oompa Loompas’ would be proud!.

    Yeah… I know I’ll buy it, I always do.

    If you like what you hear then buy it but if you don’t then there always cheap earbuds or stick your fingers up the two side holes for no cost.
    Merry Xmas Mr and Mrs Blackmore.

    je n’achèterai pas car les quelques chansons entendues sur you tube ne me plaisent pas trop simpliste pour un guitariste de sa trempe! les premiers albums de BN eux étaient superbes!!!

    Yay! I LOVE the yellow sun.

    I will get the CD for the one or two good tracks I hope are on it. Their songs pretty much all sound the same after the 4th album.

    It’s what is expected from the man in black and his good wife. Only heard the first track and as long as the rest of the album of the same ilk I’m sure it will be ok. I will purchase it as have everything Mr Blackmore has done since the year dot. Though I am hoping that during the lockdown period Mr and Mrs blackmore might have also written some possible material for a new rainbow album. Though the heady days of album success commercially are sadly gone I’m sure us die hard Blackmore nuts would love just one more trip down memory lane and hear Ritchie kicking out some serious riffs 👍…. 🍻

    Last Rainbow truly flight was in 95’s Stranger in us all, but we have been able to enjoy bits of Ritchie’s stratocaster magic in many of the Blackmore’s Night’s pieces, specially since Fires at midnight (for those who wanted to listen to). I hated Ritchie’s new direction at the begining, absurdly comparing. Now, after so many years and so many songs, I think BN is as important a part of the genious’ legacy as the DP and Rainbow stuff. I don’t like Candice voice, but @1 I can’t agree her singing is dreadful, I think she has a great (lovely) voice, which has nothing to do with rock, but somehow fits well enough in this renaissance world. I’ll buy the new CD as I bought all the previous ones and I’ll listen to it and enjoy for what, I know, it will be.

    @ 10….I could not agree with you more. Yes, Blackmore’s Night is sounding more and more the same, and a little more boring with each album, but i will add it to my collection, and it is still Ritchie were you get a solo or two on the albums.

    2020 was already a nightmare …..

    We now get a preview into more torture.

    Omg, isnt there anything with hope, sorry, exitement,drama, a certain agression?

    I like the 1st song they just released so I know what I’ll be getting. About three more songs just like it then a couple more that make the LP worth buying and few fillers to fish it up. It’s still very good music for what it is. I’m looking forward to the CD. It’s still a lot better than Hip hop, rap and the lousy Pop music they’re trying to pass off as music these days. If ya want something harder then buy “Woosh” by DP’ Also a safe choice for good music.

    ‘Darker Shade of Black’ is a phenomenal track BUT it was released on a previous BN album. I cannot think of any major artist who has done such a thing. A very odd move. ‘Wish you were here’ makes an appearance again but it has a new vocal laid down on the original backing track.

    @14 RE: “Darker Shade of Black’… …was released on a previous BN album. I cannot think of any major artist who has done such a thing.”

    BÖC did it with I’m on the lam, but I ain’t no sheep which was on their first album. The song was re-worked a little and re-appeared on their second album as The Red & The Black.

    Then there’s Astronomy which appeared on their third album Secret Treaties & re-appeared 15 years later on the concept album Imaginos (also with a slight tweak to the arrangement).
