“The song ‘After The Rain’ was coming out of the blue. I have never done a power ballad before. Michael Voss wrote some of the lyrics and vocal melodies, after I had put down my musical composition on backing track for this song. The next morning Michael Voss played me what he had sang to it and I said: ‘This is so beautiful, only you can sing this song and it turned out amazing’,” comments Michael Schenker.
“This is an outstanding mellow tuned power ballad with some unique Michael Schenker clean picking guitar style. When I first listened to Michaels rough sketches, I was singing a kinda ‚lala‘ melody that automatically drove me into the line ‘say have you been lonely,…‘ – from there I felt it must deal about a sad loss and a departure of a big love… but there will be sun and light… after the rain,“ adds Michael Voss.
