FERRY CORSTEN discovers his ‘BLUEPRINT’ with new Sci-fi concept album

FERRY CORSTEN:  “Very excited to announce my brand new album & tour #Blueprint coming soon! Download the first single for free via http://flashover.choons.at/blueprint “

Ferry Corsten discovers his ‘Blueprint’ with new Sci-fi concept album
Release date: Coming Spring 2017
For many music fans the art and craft of the album has been lost to a digital age, for others the vision of a concept album often lacks that atmosphere-enhancing quality. Dutch electronic music producer Ferry Corsten is an artist who shares this view. It is a view that has led him to complete his fifth and, by his own admission, most ambitious artist album to date. A true concept album conceived by a wilful passion to recode how the music delivers its story, ‘Blueprint’ is a new LP that its architect sees as being “greater than the sum of its parts”.
Stimulated by an idea to unite the music with a storyline that stretches beyond a nebulous lyrical theme, Ferry wanted to explore his appreciation for the art of screenwriting and film scores and bring to the project a wider scaling approach. Drafting in acclaimed screenwriter David H Miller (of House Of Cards and Rosewood fame), the pair worked closely on storyboarding a narrative to accompany the albums conceptual direction. What results for the end listener is a body of work that is polished, synthesised and intellectual in its in conclusion.
With the storyline giving nods to the proses of iconic sci-fi authors such as Jules Verne, Hugo Gernsback and most distinctively HG Wells, whilst equally sharing familiarities with modern day shows such as The OA, Westworld and retro Sci-fi-fest Stranger Things, ‘Blueprint’ is an explorative piece of work that puts Sci-fi at its interstellar core. Hollywood actor Campbell Scott (known for The Amazing Spider-Man and The Exorcism of Emily Rose) provides his voice as the narrative of the album flirts between first and third person narration. A unique output for one of the biggest names in the electronic scene but Ferry’s attempts with ‘Blueprint’ is to bring a wider perspective to the listener, as he aims the album to be inclusive of dimensions of religion, history, idea and science fiction.
‘Blueprint’ is truly an explorative journey and one which the iconic producer is finally excited to be sharing with you…
To give fans an opening introduction of the album’s tracklisting Ferry has chosen to gift the first single and title track ‘Blueprint’ on his official SoundCloud as an offering to give any eager ears a taste of what’s to come. Already support by some of the biggest names in the galaxy that includes selectors such as Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz and Above & Beyond, ‘Blueprint’ is available to listen/download via http://flashover.choons.at/blueprint
Opening with the announcement of nine confirmed shows spread across Asia, Europe and North America, the official Blueprint Album Tour will touch down at Myst in Shanghai, SW4 in London, Exchange in Los Angeles, Webster Hall in New York with more to be announced.
