EUROPE guitarist JOHN NORUM has announced that he has signed a solo deal with Gain Music Entertainment and will enter the studio shortly to begin recording his new solo album, to be released in September.
Gain Music Entertainment is distributed and partly owned by Sony Music.
Norum commented on the deal:
"It feels real good, I'm finally on the only real Swedish rock label with international ambitions."
Markus Tagaris of Gain (pictured above with Norum and Gain's Magnus Lundbäck) added:
"It's gonna be great working with John Norum's solo album. He's one of the best and most respected guitarists in the world."
Norum released his first solo album, 'Total Control', in 1987 and has made eight solo albums in total since then. His latest release was 2010's 'Play Yard Blues'.
Norum will perform live this year both as a solo artist and with Europe who will play a very special 30-anniversary show as the headlining act at this year's Sweden Rock Festival on June 7th, and have also this week been confirmed to appear at this year's Download Festival.
