Ever felt Gibonni's music was so good you could eat it? Well now you can...

Our friends Nadalina are once more weaving their musical chocolate magic, according to Croatian Times

The album "20th Century Man", recorded in London's legendary Abbey Road and Sphere studios and produced by Briton Andy Right, has now been released as chocolate made single. And it really plays on a gramophone!

"That's a single on 33" and after five hearings you need to eat it", says Gibonni who is a top selling star in Croatia and the Balkans area for two decades already.

The single "20th Century Man" in a chocolate version is ready and will be played and eaten by his fans for the first time in Vienna's Gasometer hall on his gig scheduled for 29 November.

"I read that chocolate contains a hormone of happiness and boosts your libido, so I thought it was a perfect combination for the rock based on music we loved in 1980s. When I heard for this possibility, I did not want to miss it", Gibonni explained.

If the chocolate is anything as good as that of the first record produced by Fon Biskich, there should be plenty of takers. It didn't last long in our house last Christmas, as Marinko kindly treated our young ladies with a special Christmas treat. Listen to the song and see the original chocolate record in action here.
