Hints, teasers, allusions and clues – they’ve all been out there. But now, Cosmic Gate make the word official: their 7th artist album will be released on January 20th, 2017!
After “Wake Your Mind”, “Start To Feel” and more, we know what to expect from the legendary Trance duo in 2017.
Also announced a huge USA tour for the duo kicking off the day of the album release.
More info on ‘Materia’s first single, artistic collaborations and tracklist will follow shortly through media outlets and the Cosmic Gate online resources below.
“We didn’t set out to create the most definitive Cosmic Gate releases ever”, imparts Nic Chagall, when talking about the process behind his and Bossi’s latest album project. “It is how it turned out though”. “With each week that passed, Bossi picks up “and each track we finished over its 12-month timeline, we became evermore aware of how fundamentally ‘Cosmic Gate’ the developing album sounded. Who knows?” he ventures, “maybe these’ll be the ones that, over time, people will hold up and say: “hey, this is what Cosmic Gate are all about”.
Nic says: “the longer we worked on the album, the more ideas came on the table: ones for songs, sounds, collaborations and other elements. We met with other artists and talked to them about it. We found a lot of them shared our vision and subsequently many wanted to become a part of it. The upshot of it all was we ended up with far more album demos than any of our previous releases, and with a higher ratio of ones we wanted to include too. It became a bit of a monster!” he says with a grin. “Far too many for one release. It was a nice problem to have, sure, but a problem nonetheless! So the idea came about to tell the story of ‘Materia’ over more than one album.”
