1. Following the UK/Finnish release of Manna’s critically acclaimed album: Songs Of Hope And Desire in early 2010, Manna has been working on new material and is starting recording it with acclaimed producer Alain Johannes (Artic Monkeys, QOTSA, Mark Lanegan, No Doubt) for the release of a new album in october 2011.

In Manna’s own words: ” I am not interested in creating anything except heartfelt music, it can be either beautiful or just plain aggressive - often both. Anyway, there should be no rules when making music, it’s when you let go of them and follow your intuition that it starts getting interesting.
