The Anselmo Project Pays Homage to The Midnight with New Single “Explorers”

Columbus, OH – Oct 31 2023 – Renowned musician Anthony S. Anselmo, the creative force behind Central Ohio’s Premier Progressive Rock Band Picasso’s Dream and his solo endeavor, The Anselmo Project, is thrilled to announce the release of his latest single, “Explorers.” This tribute cover, a rock rendition of The Midnight‘s hit track from their Kids album, showcases Anselmo’s musical prowess and creativity, offering listeners a fresh perspective on the acclaimed Synthwave band’s iconic sound.

In this rendition, The Anselmo Project enlisted a lineup of exceptionally talented musicians to elevate the song to new heights in the realm of modern rock. The track features TheV on Guitar, Chuck McDowell on drums, Philippe Pansard on Bass, and the soulful vocals of Cam Stark, a local talent from the Columbus region. Stark’s previous collaborations with Anselmo on projects like No Rest and Anselmo’s last album, ‘David the Elder,’ have proven to be a dynamic partnership.

“Been a fan of The Midnight for a few years now. A few years ago they released their separations for artists to create their own interpretations, and I had to jump on this one song,” expressed Anselmo, reflecting his deep admiration for The Midnight‘s work. Anselmo is not only dedicated to crafting remarkable covers but is also actively working on unveiling long-lost Picasso’s Dream music, promising exciting releases in the near future.

“Explorers” is now available for FREE on popular platforms such as Soundcloud, inviting music enthusiasts to experience this captivating homage firsthand.
