A few days ago i discovered on the German site cretuworld.de that Enigma is no longer with the EMI label but switched to Universal Music.

A member of the forum there sent a email to EMI in May this year in which he asked if there will be a new Enigma album in 2013. EMI answered that he should try to contact Universal Music about this because Michael Cretu/Enigma are no longer with them.


Since it's in German i translated it for you:

Enigma New Album 2013

Hello EMI,

wanted to ask if there's a new Enigma album planned for this year.

Thank you.

Sincerely yours

Marcel H.

Here is the answer from EMI I have just received.

Dear Mr. H.

Thank you for your email and your interest in our company.

We regret to inform you that Enigma is no longer under contract with EMI Music.

Please contact regarding your inquiry, therefore, to the current label Universal Music.

Sincerely yours

Your EMI team


From my logical thinking and point of view this means Mr. Cretu signed a contract with Universal Music and thus means he needs to release new material in the near future. May it be with Enigma or other projects.

I signed up for the Enigma newsletter to keep informed about what's going on.

Huh!?! You know I'm sorry to admit it, but it just sunk-in, in my little pee brain; since MC=E is no longer with the EMI Label, he's no longer bound to the contract to make an eigth album .... but maybe by being with Universal Music (and how appropriate of a label for MC=E to have) perhaps this will give MC more flex for his Enigma Project (as in maybe more albums!?!) and other projects as well!?!

Hm? And as always, we fans, are always speculating - though it's interesting and fun at the same time putting the little bits of info together we fans can get our hands on.

We'll just have to wait and see .... like we always do!!

Thanks so much for the info, Maik!! :D :yourock:
