Tarkan to Write Name Across Hearts

By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

Music Blog: Tarkan's Album is Ready!

Screencap of reportTurkish music blog on pop around the world, Poptrend, has written that Tarkan's eagerly anticipated 2010 release is ready to hit the music stores and the hearts of the Turkish public.

The blog writes that after the artist's May digital single "Sevdanın Son Vuruşu" ("Love's Last Strike") hit the number one spot on radio and TV music charts, the megastar of Turkish pop music is getting ready to release "Adımı Kalbine Yaz" ("Write My Name Across Your Heart") on 16 July, after a musical hiatus of two years.

The Poptrend article says that there are six songs and five remixes, making a total of eleven tracks on the 2010 release, with the first song to be released being the Tarkan penned track "Adımı Kalbine Yaz" - which the article writes will start rotation on national Turkish radio stations this week.

With such dance tracks as the Sezen Aksu, Ozan Çolakoğlu and Tarkan collaboration "Öp" ("Kiss") and Aksu's son Mithat Can Özer's track "Acımayacak" ("It Won't Hurt") rocking the clubs, the musical meeting between songwriter Günay Çoban and Tarkan's composition for the song "Kayıp" ("Lost") will make people grab their hankies whilst also holding a surprise at the end of the track, Poptrend reveals.

The report prints there will also be remixes by Kıvanç K. and Suat Ateşdağlı to "Sevdanın Son Vuruşu", Gürsel Çelik to "Acımayacak" and "Öp", while Çolakoğlu has remixed the break-out track "Adımı Kalbine Yaz".

Tarkan has spilt the album into two parts so that every song can be focused on, without a large gap between releases, and part two is planned for the end of this year, the music blog writes.

Demir also writes that he might post a definite date tomorrow, and that he is considering a holiday after its release, while adding that another six-track release is being considered for the start of December this year.

Elsewhere on Twitter, celebrity correspondent for Haberturk, Oben Budak - who had reviewed Tarkan's 2010 songs pre-release last May - has tweeted for fans not to panic and to wait for the album's release "this week", while complaining that he feels the postponements are making him out to be a liar.
