“Mirate”, the fresh sounding, atmospheric first single from Grammy & Latin Grammy-award winning La Ley’s November 23rd CD/DVD, HISTORIAS E HISTERIA, goes to radio today. Recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Humberto Gatica, the organic feeling, mid-tempo track, was written by the band’s legendary lead singer Beto Cuevas and asks the listener to look within him or herself for truth. “Look at yourself/If we are going to talk/and open the dam of honesty.”

“Our job is to make music that our fans want to hear,” says Cuevas. “We don’t like to preach to our fans, that’s not our job. But if while we are doing that, we provoke a fan to think beyond their everyday world, then that’s incredible.”
“Mirate” is one of three new tracks (“Bienvenido al Anochecer” and “Histeria” are the others) on the anthology CD, HISTORIAS E HISTERIA, which includes 13 of La Ley’s most important hits. . The CD is available on it’s own or in a double pack with a special DVD of all of the band’s videos, with a special narration by Cuevas. The free-form narration is Cuevas’s spontaneous reactions to watching the videos back to back, and includes his observations and, sometimes hilarious, memories of events connected with the songs and videos.
The multi-million selling La Ley will be in the U.S. and Latin America to promote the new music, CD and DVD, and will tour in early 2005.
