BEYOND NOW - OUT NOW
14th October 2016

Beyond Now by Donny McCaslin DONNY McCASLIN who as you know collaborated with DAVID BOWIE on his ★ album has released a brand new album today entitled: BEYOND NOW.

Beyond Now features the same group of musicians that defined Blackstar's aesthetic - keyboardist Jason Lindner, bassist Tim Lefebvre and Mark Guiliana.

Donny says: "There was a lot of that energy bouncing off of all of us when we were recording Blackstar and I wanted to make sure that that was all present in this new record.

"The title track 'Beyond Now' is directly inspired by a song of David's that we recorded during the Blackstar sessions, but that didn't make the final record. All the originals were written last summer - before he passed away, but while the Blackstar recordings were still really fresh. [The sessions concluded in Spring 2015.] Songs of his were just kind of running through my unconscious. That was part of it."

Also featured on the album are two Bowie cover versions: 'A Small Plot Of Land' (David Bowie/Brian Eno/Reeves Gabrels/Mike Garson/Erdal Kizilcay/Sterling Campbell) and 'Warszawa' (David Bowie/Brian Eno).

The album tracklisting runs as follows:

       1. Shake Loose.
       2. A Small Plot Of Land.
       3. Beyond Now.
       4. Coelacanth 1.
       5. Bright Abyss.
       6. Faceplant.
       7. Warszawa.
       8. Glory.
       9 Remain.

Featured in the linear notes is a wonderful written tribute to David Bowie and everyone who loved him.

The album is available to purchase NOW. Check out the official trailer for the album below..

Beyond Now by Donny McCaslin DONNY McCASLIN who as you know collaborated with DAVID BOWIE on his ★ album is to release a new album this month entitled: BEYOND NOW scheduled for 14th October.

Beyond Now features the same group of musicians that defined Blackstar's aesthetic - keyboardist Jason Lindner, bassist Tim Lefebvre and Mark Guiliana.

Donny says: "There was a lot of that energy bouncing off of all of us when we were recording Blackstar and I wanted to make sure that that was all present in this new record.

"The title track 'Beyond Now' is directly inspired by a song of David's that we recorded during the Blackstar sessions, but that didn't make the final record. All the originals were written last summer - before he passed away, but while the Blackstar recordings were still really fresh. [The sessions concluded in Spring 2015.] Songs of his were just kind of running through my unconscious. That was part of it."

Also featured on the album are two Bowie cover versions: 'A Small Plot Of Land' (David Bowie/Brian Eno/Reeves Gabrels/Mike Garson/Erdal Kizilcay/Sterling Campbell) and 'Warszawa' (David Bowie/Brian Eno).

The album tracklisting runs as follows:

       1. Shake Loose.
       2. A Small Plot Of Land.
       3. Beyond Now.
       4. Coelacanth 1.
       5. Bright Abyss.
       6. Faceplant.
       7. Warszawa.
       8. Glory.
       9 Remain.

You can purchase A Small Plot Of Land and can now listen to MP3 samples here of each track.

The album is available to pre-order NOW.
