RETTIG TURNS UP THE HEAT
On the brand new album Black Sun, Patrick Rettig expands into uncharted musical territory. The soulful songwriter creates a universe of rhythm and sound that takes the listener on a genre-bending journey.
Explosive dance tracks with pulsing beats, swirling synth keyboards and blistering electric guitars come together to move the body and the mind. "Dance" the album's first single combines social commentary and sensuality in a club mix that delivers. Rettig has definitely found a new passion for writing sexy, beat driven love songs including "Tell Me What You Want" and "Drive".
The California rocker stays true to his classic roots with many of the songs on the CD. However, he shows his versatility as he moves from a sultry salsa groove to an uplifting gospel song featuring the famous Waters family on background vocals.
Patrick honors one of his musical heroes, Stevie Wonder, by covering his hit song "Superstition"...and it's rendered in true Rettig fashion.
There's a whole world of music to discover behind the Black Sun.
