New Single 'Take Me As I Am'
Take Me As I Am, a song in which the call to 'be accepted as you are' stands central. Theo : "During the recording of my album 'Home at last' in New York I came across a homeless person of around 30 years old, at the Metro No. 7, who was tripping on the street. Nobody tried to help him to help and he was just dying on the street. That made a deep impression on me and I was bewildered : "How can something like this happen?". Because I've been through this I have a lot of compassion for the homeless.
Mixing new album Theo Lens, new york
Theo's new album "Home At Last" contains 17 beautiful songs. The album "Home At Last" is a road trip of one man that begins and ends in the same place, with lots of characters from the dark side of life. It's a story of faith and forgiveness, but the music and lyrics are definitely rock. The creation of the album 'Home at last' was inspired when Theo Lens studied the classic Rembrandt painting 'The Prodigal Son'. 'It was like lightning struck me! That was me kneeling down, broken and ready to fall into the arms of my Father'. Lens saw parallels between the story of the wayward son and himself through the years and decided to write a concept album. 'I love the idea of a concept album, and it's been a long time since I've heard one.' He hired top musicians, and co-wrote with an American lyricist, Lee Ann Vermeulen, most of the tracks that chronicle a life come full circle. The album was mixed at the Electric Lady Studios, New York (Jimi Hendrix) by his all-time favorite producer Michael Brauer, a legend in the music industry known for his work with countless bands, like The Rolling Stones, Coldplay, James Blunt and John Mayer. 'The project does not end with the release of the album. I am putting together a band for a high-tech multi-media tour throughout Europe. The story is universal, and more importantly, it's mine to tell. I can't wait to get the word out'.
The labyrinth of life
"Love is a comforting gift. No matter how hidden. Its omnipresence is encouraging in my quest of life, my inner journey.To fully experience it, is an empowering and unforgettable grace. To find it however, is probably the hardest challenge for any single one of us. No matter who you are, and where you live. To trust upon it may be a life long lesson to be learned."
The journey to accept and embrace the omnipresence of love is vividly expressed by the 'once hurt, twice shy' rocker musician and entrepreneur Theo Lens. In this universal, yet personal, album, he inspiringly shows the many situations we all find ourselves in at times in the labyrinth called life; torn between worldly ambi- tions, enjoying heartfelt seductions and that soul deep longing to be in balance, at peace, at home.
