Hero 04:19
And there's a hero... And she's coming... Soon... I know... Sometime when I'm dreaming I feel you come my way Unlocking all the secrets And shining on the day I dream I'll never wake up And live inside my mind Looking to the future With the past now left behind 'Cause every promise needs a keeper Every journey needs a start Every story needs a hero Who can win the dreamer's heart Every answer needs a question Every ocean needs a shore Every story needs a hero One we've all been waiting for Hold on to this feeling I hear the voices say Waiting can last forever But when she comes she'll stay I dream she's moving closer There can't be far to go Before the hurt is over And the band can start the show 'Cause every promise needs a keeper Every journey needs a start Every story needs a hero Who can win the dreamer's heart Every answer needs a question Every ocean needs a shore Every story needs a hero And I'm waiting for her call And I'm waiting for her call I dream I'll never wake up And live inside my mind Looking to the future With the past now left behind 'Cause every promise needs a keeper Every journey needs a start Every story needs a hero Who can win the dreamer's heart Every answer needs a question Every ocean needs a shore Every story needs a hero One we've all been waiting for I'll be waiting…

Mona Lisa 03:12
Si s'éprendre n'est rien Que se méprendre Toi tu n'as pas besoin D'un dessin pour le comprendre Mona Lisa Jamais une larme, jamais un soupir Pas une seconde Mona Lisa Tu prétends même, avec le sourire De la Joconde Qu't'es seule au monde, toute seule au monde Tu souris Tant pis si ce garçon s'enfuit Tu souris C'est que tu es trop bien pour lui Tu souris L'amour c'est trop compliqué et puis Ça t'ennuie Tu souris Tu entrouvres tes lèvres roses Tu souris Et tu ne quittes plus la pose Tu souris Tu dois sûrement cacher quelque chose Je suppose Le rouge est mis écarlate Gare aux brigades Toi devant le tableau tu éclates Comme leurs grenades Mona Lisa Ca t'effraie pas, ça t'fait pas frémir Pas une seconde Mona Lisa Tu attends même avec le sourire De la Joconde La fin du monde, la fin du monde Tu souris Chaque jour en suivant le journal Tu souris Tu trouves la pitié trop banale Tu souris Comme si faire preuve de sens moral C'était mal Tu souris Personne ne sait jamais pourquoi Tu souris Surtout quand il n'y a pas de quoi Tu souris Tu t'fous vraiment de tout, dis-moi Ou bien quoi? Mona Lisa Ca t'effraie pas, ça t'fait pas frémir Pas une seconde Mona Lisa Tu attends même avec le sourire De la Joconde La fin du monde, la fin du monde

Ooh Is there a look in your eye? I guess I must be dreaming 'Cause I'd never thought about you in that way Have you heard all the talk? About the way I must be feeling But I know you don't believe in what they say Now I stop and think about it more Maybe now I'm not so sure? I think I heard a rumour that I'm falling in love with you, with you I know it's just a rumour but I think that it might come true, come true 'Cause I can't deny the feeling, like the start of something new But I think you heard a rumour that I love you All the time we're apart I'm a picture of confusion But I think about and miss you every day All the words, all the lies It adds to the illusion And I start to wonder if it's just a game we play What if there's more to this than meets the eye? Is this the spark that lights the fire? I think I heard a rumour that I'm falling in love with you, with you I know it's just a rumour but I think that it might come true, come true 'Cause I can't deny the feeling, like the start of something new But I think you heard a rumour that I love you

Into You 03:41
I used to think I could map it all out Plan my life with no flicker of doubt I thought I knew how the story would end But that was just pretend When it comes to love There's no guarantee When it comes to love There's no way of knowing When it comes to love It's no certainty We can't control what the heart will be showing Who can say where love will go? We take a chance but we can't know The future's ours to win or lose But right now I'm into you I'm into you I used to say what I wanted to do All my dreams, how they all would come true I thought I knew where the journey would go But I would never know When it comes to love There's no guarantee When it comes to love There's no way of knowing When it comes to love It's no certainty We can't control what the heart will be showing Who can say where love will go? We take a chance but we can't know The future's ours to win or lose But right now I'm into you I'm into you

It has been close to four years since her first album, “You’re The One” and about six since that unforgettable version of “Pineapple Princess” that got Cristina Quesada’s career at Elefant Records started, with that 7” Single for our “New Adventures In Pop” collection. But time doesn’t pass in vain, and Cristina is back, more mature, with something radically different than that ukulele that so identified her. This time, synth-pop, italo-disco, euro-pop and techno-pop are the parameters that guide her new songs, which this time have a collaborator/producer/arranger/composer to die for: nothing more and nothing less than Joe Moore himself (THE YEARNING, THE PERFECT KISS, Lia Pamina), who is in the process of making the adjective “prolific” sound insufficient.

With this, amidst synthesizers, keyboards and eighties drum machines, we have “Hero”, the first advance Single of her second album “Think I Heard A Rumour”, and a good sample of the focus of the album – disco hits from the end of the 80s and beginning of the nineties, with complex harmonic developments and impossible turns that, according to Moore, “push the choruses even higher”. It’s an instant classic included among SAINT ETIENNE at their most danceable, the Japanese pop of Tommy February6, the earliest recordings of THE SOUND OF ARROWS or PET SHOP BOYS’ poppiest songs. The A side of the Single also includes a version of “Mona Lisa” by LIO, proof of the protagonists of this release’s love of French sounds, and an absolutely exquisite setting for an unforgettable song.

“Think I Heard A Rumour”, the song that opens the B side and will also be included on her new album, is pure techno-pop with clear echoes of NEW ORDER, with surprising changes and turns but at the same time a heavenly chorus. This is a song that we can perfectly imagine giving flavor to the most glamorous and dreamiest summer nights on the dance floors of the whole Mediterranean area. The intention was to write perfect pop songs and Joe Moore always achieves this. And if there were any doubts, Cristina and Joe close with another song that is exclusive for this Single, “Into You”, with the same parameters we mentioned before: galloping bpms, martial basses somewhere between DESIRELESS and BANANARAMA, choruses as catchy as ABBA’s, italo-disco influences and the soles of shoes on fire. Another hit for this Single that will be released as a Digital Single and on a 500-copy numbered limited-edition 7” forest green vinyl.

And yes, it’s amazing… We have a new divine alliance to add to Mr. Moore’s list. And we are so happy and proud to do so. And this is just a taste of how incredible Cristina Quesada’s second album is going to be. The album will be released this coming April, and it will be full of surprises. In addition to the songs Joe composed especially for this album, we will also find a previously unreleased song by Ibon Errazkin and Teresa Iturrioz which we have rescued for the occasion. We also have some versions in French, Swedish and Portuguese, a duet with Andreas (ALPACA SPORTS) and an exclusive song that Ana from LA BIEN QUERIDA wrote for Cristina.
