Nickelback – ‘Dark Horse’
‘Dark Horse’ is the upcoming sixth studio album by the Canadian post-grunge band Nickelback. Work on “Dark Horse” began in March, after Nickelback made its long-awaited contact with Mutt Lange. The band travelled to the producer’s home base in Switzerland to begin going over song ideas. The album was recorded from mid- to late-2008 in Chad Kroeger’s converted barn studio in Vancouver, BC and was co-produced by the band with Mutt Lange, known for producing records by AC/DC, Bryan Adams and Def Leppard. The first single from the album was “Gotta Be Somebody”, which was released online for free download on September 29, 2008 for a strict 24 hour period . “If Today Was Your Last Day” was the originally planned lead single but was scrapped at the last minute. According to lead vocalist Chad Kroeger, more of the songs contain adult themes in the lyrics. The album contains songs from a myriad of rock styles, from ballads to metal to country.
