Ferry Corsten Set To Release Sci-Fi Concept Album ‘Blueprint’

Ferry Corsten Blueprint

Concept albums in dance music haven’t caught up as much as one would like. With Steve Angello‘s ‘Wild Youth‘ being the most recent example of a concept album in the electronic music realm, looks like fans are all set to be treated to a brand new album this year.

Dutch Trance veteran Ferry Corsten is all set to return with his first studio album after ‘Hello World‘ in 2015, and this time the ‘Radio Crash’ hitmaker is set to release a sci-fi concept album titled ‘Blueprint‘, which by Corsten‘s own admission is his most ambitious artist album to date.

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 album set for a Spring release, Ferry has already previewed the title track off the album, and given it away for a free download. Stream it here below, and grab your copy here.
