As for the last single for Outlanders before the album release, I was happy to revisit my own Oasis. The very first song that I wrote and that got released back in the days, which makes the song very close to my heart.
With Outlanders the song is reborn as we managed to take it to a different place which I could have never imagined when I wrote it just with my piano 16 years ago.
I decided to write English lyrics to make it special for Outlanders.
I was still living in Buenos Aires, Argentina when I asked my local friend, guitarist Walter Giardino to put his magic into A Peaceful Place (Return to the Oasis). Walter was the very first guitar player that helped us to start with Outlanders and he really captured the soul and idea of what we were looking for it with Torsten. In A Peaceful Place (Return to the Oasis) you can hear his amazing talent both with acoustic and electric guitars.
I hope my song can take you to a different journey and that you could find a peaceful place where you can feel safe and free.
