LorD and Master wishes you a very happy, healthy and prosperous Christmas and beginning to the new year.
Something is returning in 2019...
LorD and Master has teamed up with Neil Francis again and this time, it's a slightly downtempo electronic song about heartbreak and lies. The new song is called White lies and is one of a few songs that Neil recorded with LorD and Master during his visit to Hastings over the summer. With additional vocals recorded and mixed by Day Clifford, White lies will be released as an EP with a number of remixes by LorD and Master, E39, milan and more. A snippet of the song's original form (more about that later) can be heard on the "coming soon" video here:
White lies was written, produced and performed by LorD and Master late in 2017. It is part of a collection of cinematically-styled songs for the forthcoming nine-track (but same-length-as-a-regular-album) Kino, which will see its release before the end of the year. Neil Francis heard the original version of the song and asked if he could do vocals for the track and it grew from there.
Further information about the release of both White lies and Kino will follow in due course.
Strange chemistry, Song with no name and the full album, Eclipse have now been released worldwide on digital download and streaming services.
You can purchase or stream these releases, which all form part of the Eclipse project, written and produced in Coventry earlier this year. Here is the video for the latest single, Song with no name, which was released Monday 23 July 2018.
Along with one final single, Adventure of a lifetime, LorD and Master will be following Eclipse up with a sequel. A sequel... What could it mean?
The tenth anniversary album, Redux 2, which marks a decade since the LorD and Master project began back in 2009, will be released on 27 May 2019.
Preceding this release are two singles, "Idiots and the rich" and "Hinting at the truth", the former was released on 15 April 2019 and the latter is released on 13 May 2019.
The album itself is a collection of thirteen songs, all classic LorD and Master songs, reimagined and re-produced by LorD and Master, often with different arrangements and all-new instrumental productions. The tracklisting is as follows:
- "I wanna let you go"
- "Go-go boy"
- "Idiots and the rich"
- "Dark streets"
- "Notes from a small island"
- "The party's over"
- "A fighting chance"
- "Battered and bruised"
- "Hinting at the truth"
- "Saying goodbye"
On 10 June 2019, the last single from the album will be released; a new version of "Midnight", based on the LorD and Master remix.
Each of the singles features a B-side and an extended mix of the single, along with an extended mix of another of the Redux 2 tracks, along with remixes of the single by other artists.
Now that Christmas and new year are over with, I've been working my buttocks off updating the website with lyrics of new releases. The LorD and Master wiki, a resource for lyrics, release dates and commentary for each release, has also been updated and now boasts an up-to-date library of releases.
And you can find the link to the wiki page at the right-hand side of the menu bar at the top of the screen.
The next original studio album by LorD and Master will be an exercise in cinematic soundscapes. Kino is a nine-track album (still with over 45 minutes of music) and includes the original LorD and Master vocal version of the original mix of forthcoming collaboration with Neil Francis, White lies along with the rather luscious Beethoven-quoting love song, Ever ours.
The album will be released on 5 November 2018 and here's the tracklisting.
- White lies
- Spiral arm
- The great divide
- Spirited away
- Heavy rain
- Ever ours
- At the break of dawn
