    Imagine gathering the dream-team of your most cherished musicians to re/record your preferred songs. PETER HOOK, DAVID TIBET, ANNABELLA LWIN and DAVE BARBAROSSA, ANDREW LILES, MASSIMO PUPILLO and many others, getting them together to record a novel, psychedelic, ultimate version of Love Will Tear Us Apart; or ROGER O DONNEL of The Cure and JULIA KENT performing their personal interpretation of the Shéhérazade story. This is THE POST ROMANTIC EMPIRE ALBUM: a dream (that many more dreams contains) embedded in a record. This album contains the story of an idea told by voices far apart: four composers (ROGER O DONNELL, BABY DEE, MATT HOWDEN, and MAJA ELLIOTT) have been invited to re/write songs selected as potential archetypes of contemporary music. Each of them invited other musicians, and all the materials produced for each track has been harmonized and tuned, each by a producer (ROGER O DONNELL, ANDREW W.K., ANDREW LILES e MATTEO SPINAZZE ). PRE has been an organization for festivals and a concept label active between 2003 and 2012, whose aim was to explore the influence of Romanticism on music vanguards. By studying the cultural (continuous) revolution that saved the soul of the western world, by searching its footprints in the subcultures surrounding us, PRE has been able to propose a synthetic and open definition of Romanticism: here and now everything is romantic, even what pretends not to be so. Confused and confusing. The languages are the same of the neo/classic music, of blues, of psychedelics, of the post-punk and, more in general, of contamination and of experimentation. A polyphonic document composed by a double lp and one ep, along with a dedicated webspace where to plunge in what has been. THE POST ROMANTIC EMPIRE ALBUM has been imagined to reveal the common matrix binding Nikolaj Rimsky Korsakov to Joy Division. Because what remains after almost ten years of activities are mostly the connections among artists coming from different music scenarios. Making THE POST ROMANTIC EMPIRE ALBUM real entailed becoming a meeting point, a shared liminal space, for 26 artists (and a children choir) spread all over the world, each with his own, different, specific rhythm and working method. Featuring Roger O Donnell (The Cure), Julia Kent (Antony and the Johnsons), Maja Elliot (ex Current 93), Gitane Demone (ex Christian Death), John Contreras (ex Current 93), Pueri Cantores Regina Nivis choir, Matt Howden (Sieben), Peter Hook (Joy Division e New Order), Nat Wason (New Order, The Light), David Tibet (Current 93), Annabella Lwin (Bow Wow Wow), Dave Barbarossa (ex Bow Wow Wow), Vin Cassidy and Larry Cassidy (Section 25), Massimo Pupillo (ZU), Andrew Liles (Nurse With Wound), Baby Dee (Current 93), Little Annie Bandez (ex Crass), Matt Sweeney, Matthew Robinson, Skip Shirley, Sarah Alden, Robbie Lee, Sarah Nowicki, Andrew W.K.

Track Name: B The House of the Rising Sun
There is a house in New Orleans, They call the Rising Sun
And you know that house had been the ruin, the wrecked ruin of many a poor boy, And Good Lord I'm one

My mother she was a tailor woman, Sewed my old blue jeans
And my father was many things but he also liked to gamble our whole luck, Down South in New Orleans

Now the only thing a gambler needs, Is a suitcase, a gun, a trunk full of junk,
And the only time that he made me satisfied, Is when he's drunk and got some pills and some junk

Oh mother please tell your children, Not to do what I have done,
You don't want to spend your lives in sin and misery, In the House of the Rising Sun.
Track Name: C Love Will Tear Us Apart
When routine bites hard, And ambitions are low
And resentment rides high, But emotions won't grow
And we're changing our ways, Taking different roads
Love, love will tear us apart again

Why is the bedroom so cold? Turned away on your side
Is my timing that flawed? Our respect runs so dry?
Yet there's still this appeal, That we've kept through our lives
Love, love will tear us apart again

Do you cry out in your sleep? All my failings exposed
Gets a taste in my mouth, As desperation takes hold,
Why is it something so good, Just can't function no more?
Love, love will tear us apart again
Track Name: D Love Will Tear Us Apart (Elegy Version)
When routine bites hard, And ambitions are low
And resentment rides high, But emotions won't grow
And we're changing our ways, Taking different roads
Love, love will tear us apart again

Why is the bedroom so cold? Turned away on your side
Is my timing that flawed? Our respect runs so dry?
Yet there's still this appeal, That we've kept through our lives
Love, love will tear us apart again

Do you cry out in your sleep? All my failings exposed
Gets a taste in my mouth, As desperation takes hold,
Why is it something so good, Just can't function no more?
Love, love will tear us apart again
Track Name: E Dreams Never End
My promise could be your fiend, A given end to your dreams
A simple movement or rhyme, Could be the smallest of signs
We'll never know what they are or care in it's escapable view
There's no escape so few in fear, Give in a changing value

To be given your sight, Hid in a long peaceful night
A nervous bride for your eyes, A fractured smile that soon dies
A love that's wrong from your life and soul, A savage mine had begun
Hello, farewell to your love and soul, Hello, farewell to your soul

Now I know what those hands would do,
No looking back now, we're pushing through
We'll change these feelings, we'll taste and see
But never guess how the him would scream
Track Name: F Annarella
Lasciami qui, lasciami stare, lasciami così
Non dirmi una parola che non sia d'amore

Per me, per la mia vita che è tutto quello che ho
È tutto quello che io ho e non è ancora finita
