    Later career as Sananda Maitreya

    He adopted a new name: Sananda Maitreya, following a series of dreams in 1995. He legally changed his name six years later on October 4, 2001. He proclaimed in an interview[citation needed] that "Terence Trent D'Arby was dead... he watched his suffering as he died a noble death", in what was perceived as an attempt to free himself artistically and reinvent himself from the oppressive nature of the record business.

    In 2001, Maitreya moved back to Europe and Germany, resettling in Munich and starting his own independent record label, Treehouse Pub. The year also marked his first album release in six years, as the unreleased Terence Trent D'Arby's Solar Return became the album Wildcard. The album was initially available for free through his website. It later gained a commercial release through a one-album distribution deal with Universal Music and then an with an independent release with the artist's own record label.

    In 2002, Maitreya moved to Milan, Italy, and began working on his next project, Angels & Vampires - Volume I. The songs were initially released through Weedshare by chapters, allowing the fans to get a glimpse of the work as it evolved. On July 29, 2005, the fully mastered album was finally released through his webshop utilizing the mp3 format and then became also available in CD format.

    In July 2005, Maitreya started working on Angels & Vampires - Volume II. He released each chapter online as he finished recording the songs. On April 29, 2006, he released the finished mastered album in his online shop. That was followed by the release of the 2CD limited edition of 'Angels & Vampires' at the end of 2007. In 2009, the album Nigor Mortis: A Critical Mass was released on his official website both as a CD and as Mp3. In 2010 he started the recording of his next project called The Sphinx, available in CD and mastered mp3 on the ecommerce of his official website. Its release was first in chapters and then as the full mastered project in the spring of 2011 at Zooathalon.com.[7] At the official website the instrumental version of two of his studio albums has also been made available.[8]

    Since the early stages of his music career he has always written, composed, arranged and produced all his tracks. In his new studio albums such as Angels & Vampires and Nigor Mortis and The Sphinx he also played all instruments. He has been touring with his band The Nudge Nudge throughout Europe to present his new music which he calls Post Millennium Rock. In April 2011 the live album Confessions of a Zooathaholic, which contains select performances of the Post Millennium Rock Tour 2010, has been released in mp3 format.[9] In 2012 he started working on his new project "Return To Zooathalon", its first two chapters are available at the official website Sananda.org/new music[7]
