New Bjorn Lynne CD released today - Beneath Another Sky !

Today, May 8th 2006, I am very proud and excited to announce the release of my new album: Beneath Another Sky !

I have been working on this CD, in between other projects, since about October 2002. That's 3 and a half years. I have done many other projects in the meantime, but I have always had this album at
the very front of my mind, and kept all my best "real Bjorn Lynne music" for this album.

The CD contains 12 tracks and plays for 1 hour, 19 minutes and 21 seconds. That's pretty much exactly as much as is technically possible to fit onto an audio-CD. The music is instrumental, highly dynamic and melodic. There is some voice on the CD, but it is only used in an "instrumental" sense -- i.e. chanting, pad-chorus, etc.

I feel that on this CD I have created the music that is my real "musical heartland". Some of you may feel familiar with the style and mood, some elements of which can be recognized from my CDs such as Colony, Revive, Dreamstate, The Void and Talisman. It's electronic music, but with some elements of live/real instruments, and with an emphasis on dynamics, excitement, atmosphere and adventure -- and most of all, melody.

Having worked very hard on this album and put up all the money for the production and manufacturing out of my own personal pocket, I obviously hope very strongly that enough people will support the music and actually buy the CD, for me to be able to call it a successful project. If you are one of those who have been browsing my web site for years and downloaded all the free music I have offered through this web site through the years, this is the moment that I could really use your support. By buying the CD, you are taking a very important part in the whole project and you can be sure that you will get value for your money

As of right now, the CD is only available to buy through my personal CD-shop. Over the coming weeks and months, the CD will slowly make its way into various other stores, such as ArtistLaunch.com, CDBaby.com, iMusicStage.com, Soundoo.com and also to legal music download sites such as iTunes, MSN Music and others.

All copies sold through my personal CD-shop in the first three weeks of release, will be individually numbered and autographed in Gold ink!

In an attempt to make it even more attractive to order this CD from my own personal web site right now, I am individually numbering and autographic, in Gold ink, all copies of this CD that are ordered from Bjorn's CD-shop within June 1, 2006.

To the left here you can see a scan of the actual CD-cover for copy #001, which will go to the first paying customer.

I really feel that this is one of my best CDs, and I hope you will enjoy it too. If you want to hear some examples of the music on the CD, you can download two tracks, "Starfield" and "Secret World" from my ArtistLaunch page.

One final word about this CD: Inside the CD-booklet you will find a password to access a restricted area of this web site, where you can download 3 more bonus tracks, in addition to the 12 tracks on the CD.

All the best,
- Bjorn Lynne
