Brendan Perry Going Soph

(PR) Brendan Perry's sophomore solo album Ark will be release in North America on May 24th via The End Records.

It is Perry's first studio album in eleven years. As one half of Dead Can Dance for nearly three decades, Brendan's music remains highly regarded and influential on a global scale helping to redefine new musical genres.

"I am delighted to have found a suitable US label in The End Records and look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with them," Perry said.

Recorded in his studio in Ireland, Ark is a solo album in the truest sense, with Brendan playing every instrument, writing all the lyrics and being the sole creative force across the eight tracks. Most of the instrumentation on Ark is derived from samples and synthesisers, and is predicated on a theory of creating ambient, almost soundtrack based accompaniment to the lyricism of the songs. In its range of influences, the album also encompasses music from all four corners of the globe to create a global soundtrack for global themes.

While Ark is not a concept album, it does combine themes which run throughout. The lyrics of opener 'Babylon' focus on the current conflicts within the Middle East. 'The Bogus Man' and 'This Boy' put a human face on those charged with waging war on behalf of self serving political interests. While such dystopian themes could be seen to make for a very bleak experience, Ark is shot through with an emotional warmth and a belief in the redemptive power of humanity from which the album title is derived. Ark is not just a refuge from a world on the brink of self destruction, but also a journey towards a better society and a more altruistic way of life.
