“THE RED FOX” SINGLE ARTWORK // DOWNLOAD HIGH-RES
A few weeks ago, Danny Michel began the journey of releasing his new album, one song at a time over the course of the next few weeks and months. Last month, we saw “Born In The Wild”, a song Danny wrote for the brave kids of the #neveragain and #marchforourlives movement.
Today, Danny puts on his leather jacket and roller skates, slicks back his hair, and continues to jump the genre barrier (but not the shark) with the 50s ‘Doo-Wop’ inspired track, “The Red Fox”.
By the end of this journey, we’ll have a 6 song album that will be pressed to CD and 10” vinyl. Each song will receive its own original artwork etched into real wood, all tying into the final album cover and title. “I'm all about the idea of shorter albums, more often,” Danny says. Fans can help out with the album via an Indiegogo campaign HERE
After spending much of the last year performing around the world and working to raise money for charities, Danny is heading out on the road this summer. Full tour dates can be found below.
