)-- The New Age Music Artist Albedo will be releasing a new album called "The Planets" at the end of September. It is a New Age arrangement of the classical work The Planets, Op. 32 composed by Gustav Holst. It contains acoustic instruments mixed with synthetics and orchestral samples. The musical style is similar to Mannheim Steamroller, Isao Tomita and Vangelis.
This is a full album of 7 songs, and over 45 minutes in total length. The recording has been completed and is currently being played on the One World Music radio station. The songs featured on the album are Mars the Bringer of War, Venus the Bringer of Peace, Mercury the Winged Messenger, Jupiter the Bringer of Jollity, Saturn the Bringer of Old Age, Uranus the Magician and Neptune the Mystic.
The Violin solos on the album were played by Kelly Richardson. The woodwind solos were played by Doug Clyde including the Sopranino Recorder, Soprano Recorder, Alto Recorder, Tenor Recorder, Bass Recorder, Oboe and Clarinet.
This will be Albedo's 11th studio album. His last album, which was also space themed, called "Space Probes" contained musical interpretations of select space probes of achievement. Unmanned robotic spacecraft that explored astronomical objects in our solar system other than earth, and were the first successful flyby, orbiter, lander, rover or sample return missions.
"The Planets" will be available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play etc, on September 29, 2015, which is the 97th anniversary of the orchestral premiere of Gustav Holst's The Planets suite in London. For those that can't wait, there is currently a Pre-Release special on Albedo's website where you can get all the mp3s from the album right now. The offer will expire when the album has been released.
