Bentley Jones – Trans//lation 2 – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on May 16, 2011

Trans//lation 2
Artist: Bentley Jones
Release Date: 6/1/11
Price: $8.99

The sequel to 2009’s Trans//lation is finally out and features another selection of covers as well as new versions of older productions. The digital version is available for only $8.99 at Amazon. However, the CD version, available only at Bentley’s official site, contains an exclusive bonus track. You can also preview entire tracks at the official site.

It’s worth noting that it’s not subtitled “J-Pop Dance Covers” as the first one was, and for good reason. A few of the songs are covers of Western productions, and the only song with a true dance beat is the CD only bonus track.
