Teaser of the new album from LUNEAR called #gostraks.Lunear is a pop/progressive French band who already released 2 Albums: Many Miles Away (2018) and Curve.Axis.Symmetry. (2020).
Before working on new songs, during lockdown they began working on a cover album. But not just a “Normal” cover album. An album who would be presented as if the songs where all written by the same band, for this precise moment, and linked together as if it was a concept album. The objective was to respect the original spirit of the songs as well as giving them a new life.
The choice of songs is eclectic and represent the large scope every member of the trio has when it comes to music. Aside from some Genesis and Marillion, you can find Britney Spears, Bowie, Tasmin Archer, Lana Del Rey or Depeche Mode to name a few.
Also, for this album, all three members share vocals.
This is a cover record but a Lunear release too.
2 years later that record sees the day. It will be available on June 1st worldwide in any streaming platforms and in a limited cd edition.
Lunear - Sleeping Satellite (Tasmin Archer Cover)Our new single is a cover from Tasmin Archer's "Sleeping Satellite", a song she wrote for her 1992 first album.

After "Inside", "Sleeping Satellite" is our second single from our forthcoming album "Gostraks", available on June, first.
It's a song originally sung by Tasmin Archer in 1992, a great hit that year.
Lunear - Take My Hand (Toto Cover)As big fans of Frank Herbert’s Dune, David Lynch and Toto, and to celebrate the new Dune movie by Denis Villeneuve, Lunear is happy to share with you this cover of Toto’s "Take My Hand", a piece of music composed for David Lynch’s Dune soundtrack, one of the best soundtrack ever made.
It is dedicated to Dave, Luke and Jeff.
Oh and yes, we forgot to tell you: Lunear will be back in 2022 with a new album. A cover album, where we’ll explore a lot of different music and artists, far beyond the "prog" area, as we did with our Stiltskin cover last year.

ABOUT THE ALBUM
"For our second album we wanted to do something different but most of all I wanted and needed time to have new ideas for new lyrics. Paul wanted to release the new album very quickly after Many Miles Away but we had nothing, no music, no lyrics. So I started to think.
I had this idea for a song for several years: the story of a man or a woman that couldn’t die no matter what. At first he/she thought it was a blessing: the dream of eternal life… But nothing lasts for ever, not even our Earth… what would happen to him/her then, drifting alone in the space?..."
WANT TO KNOW MORE ?
Keyboardist and singer Paul J. No and singing drummer Sebastien Bournier have known each other for twenty years. They’ve been playing on one another records for a long time and four years ago they decided to write songs together. Lyrics and musical ideas were exchanged and before they knew it 8 songs were born. Both realised fairly quickly that they needed another soul to cover their weaknesses i.e. guitars, bass and mix. Luckily, Sebastien knew the perfect gem and invited his old friend Jean-Philippe Benadjer to come aboard. Jean-Philippe gladly agreed and contributed beautiful guitars and bass as well as music for two news songs, thus completing the 10 songs of the first Lunear album: Many Miles Away.
