PEACOCK SUNRISE RECORDS RELEASES OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO
FOR SUN KING RISING’S SINGLE, FREE WILL IN CHINA BLUE


February 8, 2022
 

“This song sounds freakin’ fantastic…tons of personality, tons of charisma, the vocals are beyond brilliant, and his entire sound, style, and vibe are massively memorable.” Review by Sleeping Bag Studios.
 

New York City radio promotions giant, Twin Vision, has released the single from Sun King Rising’s Delta Tales album to radio stations across America, accompanied by a stunning, performance music video. Recorded live in a studio just outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Free Will in China Blue features a full complement of A-List horn players, backup singers, and players. No loops, no samples, no autotune. This is true of the entire 11-song album
 

The creation of songwriter/singer John Blangero of Port Isabel, Texas, who composed most of its songs, and produced by Pittsburgh’s Steven “Ace” Acker, the single and the album strongly evoke the imagery and feel of a somewhat mythical, but very real land centered in the fabled area along the Mississippi River called “The Delta.” If William Faulkner and Tennessee Williams had been songwriters, they might have written songs much like those of Sun King Rising…richly textured novellas set to music.
 

The single’s opening line, “I am a southern man, I lead a southern life,” introduces a classic tale of temptation, sin, and redemption, with a rousing climax that lifts listeners off their seats..

Critical reviews of the single and the album have already helped to lift both up to international acclaim. As one reviewer has written of John Blangero, “His voice has a true passion to it, one that burns everything around it down into pure ash.”

With his storytelling prowess, “Free Will in China Blue” fulfills the Southern Noir promise of its opening line. And with the radio airplay that will surely result from Twin Vision’s new campaign, music lovers across America will hear what all the fuss is about.
