Wim Mertens - 'Un respiro' released 7 March 2005 
Wim Mertens has a new solo album set for release on Monday 7 March. The release marks his 25th year in the business. The official site, wimmertens.be, offers this insight into the new album:

"Un respiro, Mertens' new solo album offers 10 new compositions, often very rythmical tracks composed for two pianos and two voices all performed by the composer himself. Un respiro shows Mertens' passion for the voice, not using it as an instrument but presenting the voice as a guide for the piano, always looking for pure expression only."
