I may not know squat about metal, but I do know the awesomeness that is Scrooge McDuck, and the crazy old duck is getting his own tribute album later this month. Finnish Nightwish keyboardist/songwriter Tuomas Holopainen is releasing a solo album entitled Music Inspired by the Life and Times of Scrooge.
The artwork for the album is provided by none other than Don Rosa, the man behind the graphic novel that inspired this project.
The track list is as follows:
01. Glasgow 1877
02. Into The West
03. Duel & Cloudscapes
05. Cold Heart Of The Klondike
06. The Last Sled
07. Goodby, Papa
08. To Be Rich
09. A Lifetime Of Adventure
10. Go Slowly Now, Sands Of Time
11. A Lifetime Of Adventure (alternative version)
The album carries a release date of April 11, 2014 (though iTunes gives a date of April 15). You can pre-order it on iTunes or get the t-shirt and CD pack at Mad Supply (WARNING: This option requires importing).
