Good news for Anna Jantar fans. Her latest album is finally available digitally

Anna Jantar is one of the greatest icons of Polish pop. The music star, who sang about 160 songs during his short career, died tragically on March 14, 1980, at the age of only 29. She was one of the passengers of the ill-fated flight of the Il-62 “Mikołaj Kopernik” plane, flying from JFK airport from New York to Warsaw.

She had hits including: “So much sun in the whole city”, “The hardest first step”, or “Old Man’s World”. One of the biggest hits, “Nothing Can Last Forever”, was not available digitally for years. Now this has changed with the appearance of the album “Anna Jantar” (1980) on the Internet.

“Dear friends, I am pleased to inform you that after many years, my mother Anna Jantar’s last album has been published digitally. I am happy about the agreement with the MTJ music label. My mother’s fans will certainly benefit from this and they will be happy with the various new releases we have planned. “- wrote the singer’s daughter on social media, Natalia Kukulska.

The star also announced that for the first time in the history of Polish Spotify, a deceased artist, i.e. her mother, became the ambassador of the EQUAL Polska campaign. “The album ‘Anna Jantar’ is released in a digital version 44 years after its release… The album containing a huge number of hits is my mother’s last album before her tragic death. The material is promoted by the single ‘Nothing can last forever,’ which is one of the greatest hits and, paradoxically, contributes to the perception of the artist as one whose memory lasts forever,” Kukulska ends her entry.

Let us remind you that the EQUAL program launched in 2021 aims to increase the recognition of local artists among Spotify users.

Judging by the comments online, not all of the singer’s fans are satisfied with the quality of the recordings. Many believe that the tapes had to be remastered for digital publication. Listeners believe that the publishers only posted versions ripped from CDs from 2003 on the website.

“It’s a pity that MTJ did not take care of new mastering from the original tapes, but included files from a CD release from 20 years ago, which had an analog disc as its source, and in average condition”; “Couldn’t MTJ find better tapes? The songs sound really bad (e.g. ‘There’s no beer in heaven’) and you can hear numerous glitches, not necessarily well corrected,” they say in the comments under the artist’s post.
