Yakup Trana

Always excited to see new work coming out from our alumni. Give this one a listen:

All right folks!.
Excited to share these 10 songs with you and the rest of the world. Available everywhere as of today. I hope you enjoy "The Will of the Absolute". As much as it's within the acoustic indie-rock genre, the album has a sound that separates it from the current trends. I'll let you be the judge...

It's years of work. Please simply download the album once or stream it a few million times so it's paid off :)

I will follow up with little videos introducing the story behind each song. My next post will be the for first video, featuring the single "Those Who Don't Belong".

Sharing and liking is highly encouraged!

Thank you all!
