LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Ralo Malo fans will receive an early Christmas present with the release of Hello Again, a digital-only EP on Fantasy Records which will be available exclusively at iTunes next Tuesday, December 16.

The five-song EP contains “Hello Again,” the first single from the Lucky One album, which streets on March 3, 2009, along with a demo version of “So Beautiful,” a studio version of which also appears on the new album. Included also are two recent live versions of songs from Malo’s 2001 debut solo album Today: “Every Little Thing” and “I Said I Love You.” Lastly, the digital EP features a newly recorded remake of a song from Malo’s Mavericks years titled “In My Dreams.”

USA Today applauded “a voice that seems to have no limits of range or versatility.” The New York Times said, “Malo has an exceptional voice, a burnished tenor that harks back to Roy Orbison and the great Cuban singer Beny Mor.” Rolling Stone added, “Raul Malo has a voice on par with the best of ‘em: Sinatra, George Jones and Orbison.” And The Wall Street Journal opined: “Malo’s superb voice is big and melodic with a natural vibrato. Exquisite.”

Malo wrote Lucky One over a two-year period at his Nashville home and was so happy with the results that several of his home demos appear as final versions on the CD. For the balance of the album, he once again enlisted Steve Berlin, best known for his work with Los Lobos and who worked on Malo’s 2001 Today album, as co-producer.
