AIR SUPPLY THE HITMAKING DUO CELEBRATES 35 YEARS TOGETHER WITH ‘MUMBO JUMBO,' THEIR FIRST STUDIO RECORDING OF ORIGINAL MATERIAL IN EIGHT YEARS!
Still inspiring waves of romantic frenzy across the globe three decades after their debut hit single "Lost In Love," Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock of Air Supply have been caught in a joyfully frenzied musical whirlwind these past few years, keeping a diverse international schedule that includes the US, The Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, Israel, Brazil and even Vietnam.
Nothing wrong with conquering hearts across the planet with classic hits like "All Out Of Love," "The One That You Love" and "Making Love Out of Nothing At All." After all, they're still used regularly on TV commercials and major motion picture soundtracks.
But the ever ambitious Air Supply is about to take several generations of adoring fans to another realm entirely on Mumbo Jumbo, their highly anticipated debut on Las Vegas based Odds On Records, distributed by E1 (formerly Koch) Entertainment.
Mumbo Jumbo's lead single, the infectious pop rocker "Dance With Me," is set hit Adult Contemporary radio in March, building momentum a month before the release of Air Supply's first studio album of all original material since 2002's Across The Concrete Sky. Another key track, "Hold On," features Australian heartthrob rocker Michael Johns, a season seven finalist on American Idol.
Recorded at Graham Russell's home studio near Park City, Utah and at Odds On's state of the art facilities in Vegas with top session musicians and an orchestra, Mumbo Jumbo was produced by Russell and engineered by Odds On's Sean O'Dwyer, whose credits include Pink Floyd, Randy Newman and Blink-182.
"Because of our crazy touring schedule, Mumbo Jumbo took three years to complete," says Graham Russell, "and Russell Hitchcock and I couldn't be happier with the results. We had been releasing projects independently for a long time, but felt that Odds On Records was the perfect match for us. They were looking to sign a band with a strong track record, and we felt they had the resources to help us launch a new project on a global scale. Russell and I were very committed to making Mumbo Jumbo a great recording. We came at it with the attitude of, ‘if this were the last album we ever made, let's make sure it's the best we can ever do.' We worked really hard on the right song selection, strong vocals and arrangements. While sticking to our vow of never making an album unless we are convinced it has numerous potential hit singles, we also believe that we have emerged with our best overall collection to date."
This will be great news to the millions of Airheads out there who have been waiting patiently for the duo's latest work. Among them are Ozzy Osbourne (who has attended their shows in disguise) and Al Pacino, who recently was spotted hanging out in a dark booth in the back of the Orleans in Las Vegas, one of the duo's regular venues.
