The global superstar and singer-songwriter G.E.M. is partnering with Warner Music China to release, promote and distribute her newest fourteen-tracked album, Revelation.
The exclusive deal is focused on global marketing and expanding her career, beginning from both physical and digital formats of the newest album.
And it all starts from the teaser for the first track, “Afterland”. Playing the role of Gloria, the singer sets the tone with a 30-second monologue outlining the vibrant life in the futuristic utopian universe she hails from.
“In the age of EPs and singles, people’s patience to savour a song from beginning to end seems to wear thin; and I wrote fourteen songs in my upcoming album. Every one of them represents a revelation very dear to me, for they taught me more about myself and about love,” said G.E.M.
“To really encourage listeners to pay attention to the songs, I came up with the concept of serial music videos — there’s a music video for each track, but together they are telling a story,” she added.
Similarly, the album is retrospective in many ways of her spiritual life; she depicts a metaverse-like heaven per se. “Revelation is a two-part album. The first half is my message to heaven, and the latter is the reply from heaven. This album marks my path to revelation. I look forward to sharing my new songs with my fans, both old and new.”
Check out the stunning visuals and sublime world-building – a teaser of the AFTERLIFE movie. Album is scheduled for release on 9 August.
