Oh No is the new single from a new album to be released in summer. The single will be available in mid February on the main downloading sites.
This is not the first time that Robert Lauri and Mitch Hiller have joined forces. They have known each other for a long time and decided to pool their talents and creativity once again to bring us Oh No. This is the first track of a series of new songs together on the album which will be out in summer.
On this album, Robert Lauri is the composer, arranger and performer, and Mitch Hiller the lyricist. Their pooled talents have yielded pure magic. Very present, almost spellbinding, Robert Lauri’s voice is like a key that opens the door to an authentic and original world created by Mitch Hiller’s lyrics. Furthermore, Robert Lauri’s look in the video by Anna Clara Passarelli bolsters the overall effect. The mystery and suspense emanating from the clip empower Oh No to move the soul.

The Oh No clip was created by a talented Italian artist, Anna Clara Passarelli. This is not the first video editing she does for Robert Lauri – far from it. What is different this time is that she has also taken the photos that she uses in it. The atmosphere that this video exudes is perfectly in tune with the song and strengthens the mysterious world created by the music and lyrics. All the music videos by Anna Clara Passarelli cover the songs featured on Robert Lauri’s websites in harmony. The Oh No clip showcases Anna’s talent again.
