Maria Mutafchieva – Mary presents her new song “The Rainy Days”
Mary from Mary Boys Band continues to work on her solo album. Her new song is called “The Rainy Days”.
“I’m happy to present the song “The Rainy Days”. I keep the idea of it more than 20 years. The basis of the lyrics is a poem I wrote in high school and it was called “Man”. Working on the song, I was carried away, adding retro motifs and vocal groups, like in the old times… So, the phrase “The Rainy Days” was repeated over and over and it gave the new name”- says Maria Mutafchieva.

Today Mary presents a version of “Unknown Streets” mixed by one of the most famous names from the contemporary music scene – DJane Monique: “For the first time I am in collaboration with a woman. It was curious and interesting for me. The remix excited me – there are some unique, “dramatic” pads and sounds! I sang the song in a new way and I like it. We are also working on English and Russian versions.”

We are currently working on a new album and on performance with guest musicians. But our official birthday is on 28 January and we want to celebrate it on the exact date with the people who love us, as it had been 20 years ago. Therefore we invite all our fans to join the party!

“As a singer and songwriter of Mary Boys Band’s songs I know it’s good for me to work in a different style, to develop certain ideas in the other direction… So came the song “A Tale Of Us”, arranged for guitar, piano and string quartet. It tells for the moment of falling in love, for that most beautiful moment in which you feel that you “fell into captivity” forever and the whole world disappears, leaving only the other person and you… Isabel and David coped brilliantly with this role! I shot the video in Paris because this city has a special place in my heart. Currently, despite our busy schedule, the guys and me started working on a new album of Mary Boys Band.” – says the singer.

Mary Boys Band finished a video to the last single “Long Way Home” – dance remix. It is made by Vassil Stefanov and includes pictures from the original and from the concert of the band in Pomorie. There Mary Boys Band performed “Long Way Home” for the first time.
Mary said: “Always when I’m looking this video I’ll remember the concert and the cool people in Pomorie. It is unique, I think, that we have pictures from the first live of this song recorded on video and we show it now! Sometimes, after years, people forget small detail about creation and performance of their music, but these pictures will get us back to the right place in the right time. About the question “Why did we make the remix of this song?”, the answer is clear – we want to present this song on another different way to our fans. Lately I give the following example, that we can compare one song to one human been – we can dress him in different toilets – sport, elegant… The good song as well as the beautiful people look nice in different ways. “Long Way Home” is very beautiful song and maybe it will give the name of the Mary Boys Band’s next album.”
Few words from Mary Boys Band about it: “Four of us were born in Burgas and it was logical to make pictures right there – on the places, that we love and visit every time when we are back home. We made pictures three days in August working with the same team like before. It was wonderful days of walk in the beautiful alleys in the sea garden and well known from our childhood streets. The town was full with tourists and it was difficult to find a calm place, that’s why we missed many places, but we succeed to get this personal atmosphere that gives us the lyrics!”
The song “Long Way Home” sounds in the Mary Boys Band’s style and is already in the play-lists of the concerts of the band.
