"New" Artist Zander Bleck working with Producers RedOne, Mutt Lange

"New" Artist: Zander Bleck

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zander_Bleck

Thomas Zander Bleck is an American Singer, songwriter signed to Interscope Records.[1] Zander's debut Album "MONUMENT" Produced by superstar producers RedOne, and Mutt Lange will be released in 2012 with his debut singles "Temptation" and "Bring It On" due in February.[2]

Zander Bleck was born and raised to humble beginnings in rural Hunterdon County, New Jersey. His mother a school teacher, his father a filmmaker, local radio DJ, and musician once signed in 1980 to Millennium/RCA Records. Zander was exposed to all genres of music at a young age taking a keen interest in Classical, World, and Rock music. He would often help his father interview musicians on his fathers local radio show. Melodies, and music came naturally to young Zander, impressing his family with his ability to sing or whistle verbatim complex melodies after just one listen. Beside his love for music, Zander excelled in athletics focusing mostly on baseball and basketball. As a teenager, Zander was spotted by a modeling Agent who pursued Zander to start a career as a fashion model. At 17 Zander moved to New York City with only $400 in his pocket to work as a full time model signed to Major Model Management.

After a bit of couch surfing, trying to make ends meet, Zander started landing jobs and began traveling the world as a print and runway model working for clients such as Diesel, Etro, Armani Exchange, Sunglass Hut, and more. At 19, never desiring a long career as a model, Zander quickly focused his energy on his love of music, and officially began his career as a self taught vocalist/musician. He began writing, and singing his songs with his first band "Monument". Falling in love with the art of singing, writing, and performing, Zander dedicated himself to studying, crafting, and finding his "voice" while studying with the renowned Manhattan School of Music Classical Voice Department.

After a variety of ups and downs, the roller coaster ride that goes with the music business, Zander persisted. In 2009, he independently released a self published EP simply titled "Zander Bleck". Soon after, Zander lent his vocals to a remake of the Tears for Fears classic "Everybody Wants to Rule The World", which raised some eyebrows when it went to #5 on the Billboard Dance charts. Then, thanks to a random, spontaneous introduction, Zander went to Los Angeles to write and record a song, "Temptation" co-written by legendary songwriter Holly Knight. The song found its way into the hands of super producer RedOne (Lady Gaga/Enrique) who instantly wanted to work with Zander.

When the two were introduced in Los Angeles, what was supposed to be a 15-minute meeting turned into a three-hour writing session that produced the song “Dancing Around This Love.” In USA TODAY, RedOne has called Zander's voice "A mixture of Jim Morrison, Bono, and Freddie Mercury..." and added "There's no male singer like that right now."[3]

Soon after, Zander was then signed directly by industry heavyweight and chairman of Interscope Records, Jimmy Iovine after a quick meeting at Jimmy's home, where Zander played 3 demos including a live performance by Zander singing and playing piano. During much of 2010/11, Zander joined RedOne on the Lady Gaga Monsterball European Tour, recording side by side with Lady Gaga and finishing the rest of his album in many different countries.

MONUMENT will be released on Interscope Records in 2012. The first single, “Temptation” will be available for sale in February.

Zander's Song "Bring It On" produced by another legendary Rock producer, Mutt Lange, is now the 2012 NCAA College basketball Theme on Fox Sports, and will also be released in February.

His voice reminds me a bit of the late Paul Young (Sad Café / Mike + The Mechanics)

It appears Mutt did only one song for Zander Bleck. Bring It On is supposed to be entirely written by Mutt as well as produced; of course, it is obvious his voice is all over the track as well.

The song will be available February 7th. There is live version of the song on youtube (with poor cell phone quality audio). I could not make out all of the lyrics but can make out enough to say that the song could very well be Mutt's way of responding to all of the negative stuff in the press over the last 3-4 years. I'll be interested to get all the lyrics.

Here are the lyrics as close as I can tell. I left out the background vocals and probably have some of it wrong:

BRING IT ON - Written by Mutt Lange

Bring it on
Bring it on
I will stand
On my own

Hey Yeah

If your head hurts
Hands are bound
Your legs are tied
With chains around

If you can’t scream
Or make a sound
If you feel pain
And your feeling down

Just step into your dreams
Be the river not the stream
Give yourself a little hope
And get on the right road

Just keep your head above the water
Baby you won’t drown
Don't let a life go wrong
And bring you down

Just say

Bring it on Bring it on
Bring it on Bring it on

I will stand
On my own
When I feel bad
I won’t run

Bring it on Bring it on
Bring it on Bring it on

Now they can’t break
Your soul
Just walk straight
And stand tall

Don’t feel shame
Take the blame
You’ll just get wet
Because it’s gonna rain

Just step into your dreams
Be the river not the stream
Give yourself a little hope
And get on the right road

Just keep your head above the water
Baby you won’t drown
Don't let a life go wrong
And bring you down

Just say

Bring it on Bring it on
Bring it on Bring it on

I will stand
On my own
When I feel bad
I won’t run

Bring it on Bring it on
Bring it on Bring it on

Oh its just the same old stuff
Day in day out
Why have a picture in your heart?
When love is about

So if you do the one thing
It's not the end of the world
No don’t throw away the key
Because you’ve got a lot to do

Just keep your head above the water
Baby you won’t drown
Don't let a life go wrong
And bring you down

Just step into your dreams
Be the river not the stream
Give yourself a little hope
And get on the right road

Just say
Bring it on Bring it on
Bring it on Bring it on

I will stand
On my own
When I feel fine
I won’t run

Bring it on Bring it on
Bring it on Bring it on

Yeah Bring it On
Bring It On
I will stand
On my Own

I will fight
I won't run
Bring it on
Bring it on

Day in day out
Why have hatred in your heart?
When love is about

So if you do the dumb things
It's not the end of the world
No don’t throw away the key
Because you’ve got a lot to do

Just keep your head above the water
Baby you won’t drown
Don't let a life go wrong
And bring you down

Just step into your dreams
Be the river not the stream
Give yourself a little hope

When I feel fine
I won’t run

Bring it on Bring it on
Bring it on Bring it on

Yeah Bring it On
Bring It On
I will stand
On my Own

I will fight
I won't run
Bring it on
Bring it on
