Michael Leibundgut releases single from crossover album (with racy photos)

Michael Leibundgut's "Michael and the band from outer space"

Many opera singers release crossover albums, but it's usually pop standards or Broadway tunes. Leave it to the always innovative Swiss barihunk Michael Leibundgut to place his unique stamp on his new CD. 

His techno-pop band is called "michael and the band from outer space" and their new album "hello" will be released this spring. However, they have been releasing singles, with "a room we share" now available on iTunes. 

Of course what caught our attention was the promotional artwork, which features Michael in his natural glory.

You can listen to his singles "the big o" and "like a gun" by clicking HERE and HERE

Leibundgut initially studied choir directing at the Music Academy in Basel, Switzerland, where he later completed his studies in voice. He performed as a member of the International Opera Studio at the Zürich Opera during the 2000-2001 season. From 2001 to 2005, he performed regularly with the Theater St. Gallen.

As regular concert performer, Leibundgut nurtures a wide repertoire including both early music and 20th century music.
