    Ferry Corsten - Blueprint (Artist Album) [Flashover]

    “A mysterious message from outer space confounds all of Earth..”

    May 2017 marks the arrival of a new album from one of electronic music’s most perennial pioneers. A true labour of love, given his passion for discovery science and space and time, Ferry Corsten’s latest studio project ‘Blueprint’ has set him on course for his own discovery as a producer, artist and storyteller. And he wants you to join him on this journey…

    “A message…A Blueprint…to build a life form…”

    In a voyage to design something that would illuminate beyond just the dancefloor, Ferry has pieced together a truly remarkable piece of work in this enthralling concept album that puts focus on a narrative of the existence of mankind and our desire to reach beyond on our own world, for love, for curiosity, for the exploration of our existence?

    “Creation, love, the search that brings with it either mankind’s destruction or its salvation…?”

    Written into the musical code of the album we learn that from the deepest edges of space, ‘The Drum’ can be heard, endlessly repeating, without any understanding as to its reason or purpose. None of the greatest minds on earth or the governmental superpower can decipher its existence. Except one. As the listener journeys from the opening track to the last the album chronicles the voyage of Lukas and Vee as a new world is opened up to not just the mind but the heart. But why did they send Vee? Is she the first contact or something more nefarious? As Lukas uncovers the truth, he learns of a far greater truth, one that has grand implications for all mankind.

    “….An android…”

    Fans can join Ferry Corsten and the boundless creativity of ‘Blueprint’ by unlocking the world beyond during the pre-order sale. Through sharing activation on the official ‘Blueprint’ website, fans will access chapters from this intergalactic voyage and discover the musical message contained within.

    From the opening title track - ‘Blueprint’ - this sci-fi inspired release synthesizes an interstellar journey wrapped in wonder, love and the unknown. Through the stories of the album’s protagonists Lukas and Vee, listeners are propelled into a cinematic voyage that is story-driven by narration, whilst encapsulated in a musical craftsmanship that will have its audience in awe. From the enchantingly uplifting tones of Gouryella’s ‘Venera (Vee’s Theme)’ to the stargazing splendour of ‘Edge Of The Skye’, featuring HALIENE, Ferry has pieced together an album that tonally ignites all the right sentiment. Gravitated by the space odyssey of ‘A World Beyond’ the album is thrust into a weaving metronomic launch with ‘Trust’, as Blueprint manages to combine masterful musical strokes of pure brilliance with several moments of gargantuan seismic textures. The full tracklisting offers tense, emotive pieces, aligned with industriously rich and strikingly, grand electronic space jams; ‘Blueprint’ offers the listener an unknown world to explore whilst undeniably showcasing a vision never before heard from Ferry Corsten’s previous studio output.

    This fifth album instalment from Ferry Corsten is his boldest and most ambitious to date. A conceptual long player that stretches far beyond its musical foundations and into the galaxy with a futuristic narrative. ‘Blueprint’ cites references from esteemed authors of the Sci-fi genre such as Hugo Gernsback and HG Wells, and delves deep into a storyboard crafted by the minds of David H Miller (of House Of Cards and Rosewood fame) and Ferry himself, giving the listener a cosmic adventure of truly interstellar proportion – voiced by Campbell Scott known for Hollywood box office hits such as The Amazing Spider-Man.

    "Very excited to announce my brand new album & tour #Blueprint coming soon! Download the first single for free via 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: 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.
    Exciting Releases:
    Karanda - Supreme
    Rodrigo Deem - Divo / Totem
    Codeko - Crusader
    Las Salinas - Winston
    Solis & Sean Truby - Armadillo
    Slim Colt - Livi
    Signal Space - Sharik

    That melody from Blueprint sounds very amateurish. Everything else sounds nice, I like the cymbals (and drums in general) and the bassline.

    Melody makes me think of Prydz tracks for some reason. Bassline is indeed beautiful and crisp. There's not many layers in this track and the dynamics feel right.

    hmmm, the blurb about the concept of the new album is very intriguing - although im not sure where this track would fit into though. I like the work that has gone into perceussion and subtle FX sounds,but the melody is quite basic and not really nice on the ear imo.

    Really looking forward to seeing what Ferry has in store for the rest of the album though...

    It should have something of interest for sure. I could be wrong but I just can't see it being like WKND and to be fair WKND was a decent party album.

    Checked out some of the previews. I can't believe I'm about to say this, but I am genuinely excited for this! Sounding much better than WKND.

    I dont like Eric Lumiere at all, also not sure if using same vocalist (Haliene, of 'Gareth Emery-Saving Light') is the best choice. Might make it boring to hear the same voices all the time.

    Eric Lumiere is a nightmare, I haven't liked a single track he's been featured on. In terms of HALIENE being on so many tracks, I had the same reaction but she has a great voice so it may just work. Also, since this is a concept album, I'm assuming in some tracks it could just be ad-libs or voiceovers, will be interesting though.
