Well-known Czech pop singer Petr Muk, a successful solo artist and the voice behind earlier projects such as Oceán and Shalom, has been found dead at 45. The singer was found in his home on Monday morning but the cause of his death remains unknown, friend and producer to the singer Oldřich Lichtenberg said. Just a few days ago the pop singer released a new album. It is public knowledge that he had been treated for - and struggled repeatedly with - bouts of depression. Muk was perhaps best-known for his work in the 1980s with the group Oceán which – with synthesiser and New Romantic sound – was reminiscent of British groups like The Cure and Depeche Mode.
