Universe’ left off, but with the new album, Michael Palace
plays all of the instruments apart from the drums, which are
played by the mighty Daniel Flores, who also aided Michael
on the production of the album, with only Oscar Bromvall
providing the guitar solo on ‘Julia’.

different artists since the debut Palace album, including
First Signal, Adrenaline Rush, Reach, Erika, Houston, Find
me, Gutterdamerung, Big Time and Mihjenko Matijevic to name
