The Commander-In-Chief Management has issued as follows:
I am proud to announce that my artist, 7string guitarist/singer/songwriter THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF has published a video interview with herself, producer James Mottershead and the Classical guitar virtuoso she has cooperated with on her new recording, Thomas Valeur. The preparations have taken 5 months and the project has been surrounded by secrecy, since it is so unique.
The Commander-In-Chief with Thomas Valeur
This cooperation is the first professional guitar recording of an extremely challenging piece of Classical music, never before performed in its entirety, correctly, on guitar.
And as far as we have been able to find out, there has never been a professional recording of a guitar duel between a Metal guitarist and a Classical guitar virtuoso before, either.
Thomas Valeur has a master’s degree in music from the prestigious Grieg Academy in Bergen, Norway, and he has mesmerized audiences all over Europe with his Classical guitar playing. In November he performed at the Thorolf Rafto Memorial Prize Ceremony in Norway, which was broadcasted live on national TV, NRK.
The Chief was recently featured on national TV, NRK, as a pioneer and one of today’s role models for women in music. She has been featured in numerous international music magazines, such as Metal Hammer UK, where she was featured as “1 of 10 modern guitar Gods” and Total Guitar Magazine calling her “The Queen of shred”.

The single and performance video will be released tomorrow, December 4th, at 6pm UK time. The single will be available on Itunes, Amazon, CD Baby, etc and a limited number of signed CDs are available from The Commander-In-Chief’s website, after the release.
