The release of Manfred Mann's second solo album, Lone Arranger. The innovative musician has continually experimented with other artists' music over the last 60 years and this new album takes his interpretations to new levels. Manfred uses his talents to provide different takes on well-known anthems of modern rock and pop, such as 'Light My Fire', 'We Will Rock You' and 'Nothing Compares to You' as well as using other people's samples of his own tracks: Kanye West sampled 'You Are - I Am' on his track 'So Appalled' and in return Manfred has completely rearranged and changed the track which now appears as 'Hands in the Air'. He has also improvised and played over the tracks by the Prodigy and Disco Boys, adding to them. By his own admission, Manfred has recorded hugely familiar songs as a challenge. He says "I chose the songs deliberately as a challenge to alter these tunes and to change elements freely, leaving sections out because the listener's mind fills in the missing bits."
