As summer gently comes to a close and autumn approaches we here at team Katy are gearing up now for the release of the Katy Carr 4th album release entitled ‘Paszport,’ in Britain on 11th November 2012. Exploring her British born and Polish roots – ‘Paszport,’ is an album inspired by the Polish WW2 experience and plays homage and salutes those brave Polish people who fought for an Independent Poland and for their courage, loyalty, honour and defiance in the face of absolute adversity. The album has been licensed to MJM Poland and will be coming out in Poland on 17th September 2012 to mark the Anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Poland in 1939.
We are also proud to say that Kommander’s Car has been on the Radio Trojka FM [equivalent to Radio 1 here in the UK] playlist for nearly a month now from commencing as song of the day on 8th August 2012 – see link here [Katy Carr on Trojka FM]
