The long-awaited album of Ferry Corsten is now just around the corner. The Dutch producer announced this week that his fifth album, to be titled ‘Blueprint‘ will be released this spring.
Stimulated by an idea to unite the music with a storyline, Ferry Corsten wanted to explore his appreciation for the art of screenwriting and film scores, drafting in acclaimed screenwriter David H Miller (House Of Cards, Rosewood fame), working closely on story boarding a narrative to accompany the albums conceptual direction.
‘Blueprint’ is an explorative piece of work that puts Sci-fi at its interstellar core, with the storyline giving nods to 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.
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.
Largely considered one of trance music’s pioneers, Corsten has released the first single from the album, also titled ‘Blueprint’, and has been already supported by Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz and Above & Beyond. It’s available now as a free download and you can hear it below.
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.
