The Album Is Here!

08 May


Welcome everyone to the grand premiere of the entire album The Dolls Of New Albion, A Steampunk Opera. This 90 minute, 4 Act slightly demented musical story features the immense vocal talents of Lauren Osborn, Jason Broderick and Kayleigh McKnight. Written and produced by Paul Shapera.

Officially out today you can purchase the entire double album for only 12 little measly US dollars. If you live in England or Europe this is like money you lose in your couch and if you live in a Scandinavian country, this isn’t even money. It costs more there to feed a flea.

But wait! There’s more! Not only does the full download come with the complete lyrics, should you want them compiled in one easy spot then take note, if you look near the top of the page you’ll see a new tab called Libretto. It has all the lyrics so you can read them, copy and paste them, or use them to make dirty rhymes by substituting naughty nouns and verbs at just the right places.

It slices! It dices! How many times have you had to put up with embarrassing spills and odors? Well no longer! It’s a @#$#^## download! It won’t mess up your kitchen and is great to cook while listening to!

In order to take this project from here to the live stage in decent venues we need more than anything word of mouth. Seriously, word of mouth is gold. It’s a long road from here, folks, barring unforeseen miracles. Word of mouth…

I’d like to lastly thank Mark Swetz and MProductions for their invaluable assistance.

If you have already purchased the 1st Act or the Random Tracks sampler before May 8th, 2012 and would like a half off discount, please email me at with your name (which i have on file) and i will send you a special download code. Also, thank you, each and every one of you who not only buys it, but actually likes the damn thing. I cannot put into words what that means to me.

    I’ve actually been waiting for this for such a long time! You can’t imagine how happy I was when I saw that you had finally uploaded it.
    Thank you for doing this amazing opera!

    Yay!!! Finally 😀 I have been waiting so long to buy the whole album! Can’t wait for the download to finish. I have been checking this side so many times you can’t imagine how happy I was when I saw that you were releasing it.

    And by the way… we don’t buy food to our fleas in Scandinavia.

    HI Paul,

    I discovered your project by seeing it on Liz Wollman’s FB stream. I purchased your album today and look forward to having time to really listen. What I’ve heard on this site sounds great, I have been working on a rock opera set in an alternate Elizabethan history, a Punk-Upon-Avon opera,so when I saw yours I was excited that there are other new works enjoying this zeitgeist,

    I’m scrounging up the money to get this! I can’t wait to listen to it, Mr Composer Man Paul Thing! You honestly have no idea how excited I was to get home and discover it all ready and waiting. Right now I’m in the middle of Act 3, and I’m loving Byron. Good job in being so fantastically awesome!

    Thanks everyone. It’s much appreciated. Muchly.

    Mike: I would LOVE to hear your piece, if and when you have something up. I’m fascinated by other works “in the zeitgeist” so drop a note here when there’s something i can listen to or read about and blog about.

    Thanks so much, Paul! I will. We should have it finished in June-ish (you know how it goes…). I haven’t had a chance to lsien to the whole Steampunk Opera yet, but will tonight. I wanted to wait until I could really focus on it.
