Marco Ragni to release “Oceans of Thought” featuring members of Airbag, Wobbler, and Gekko Projekt, a​mon​g others

Melodic Revolution Records and Marco Ragni are thrilled to announce that Oceans of Thought will officially be released in both CD & Digital formats and available worldwide June 21st, Pre-orders will go on sale on June 1st and will inclued 5 digital-only bonus tracks with all pre-orders

About the album
“Oceans of Thought” was originally called “The Merchant of Eternal Youth” but during the time of the recordings I had some personal problems and I was a little depressed. So the songs, the cover but above all the lyrics, have undergone a change because my music comes from what I have inside of my mind and soul. 

So this album talks about the difficulties that life sometimes brings us, but also talks about how to try to overcome them. It’s a record that I care a lot about, because it talks a lot about me. Because great musicians have played there, from Norwegian guitarists Bjørn Riis founder of the band Airbag and Marius Halleland (Wobbler), Peter Matuchniak (Kinetic Element), Jeff Mack (Scarlet Hollow) and Maurizio Antonini the beating heart of this record. The precious woodwinds arrangements by Dave Newhouse (The Muffins) and the beautiful voice of JoJo Razor (Gekko Projekt) and last but not the least, Charlie Cawood (Knifeworld) playing Sitar. 

This year I turned 50, an important and very significant milestone for me. Half a century on Earth! What a wonderful journey up to here. First of all I want to thank my beautiful and wonderful Wife because She made my life happier and more dynamic. Then all the supporters who allowed me to record this album and in particular Jon Hawkins for having produced it. I am proud and very happy to present it to you today. I hope it will reach your heart and your mind. Entertaining you, relaxing and making you think about life, its beauties and sometimes its inconsistencies.

The album will be released on June 21st, the day of the summer solstice. The most important day of my life.

Have a good trip folks!
Marco Ragni
