The New Albion Instrumental Tracks Album Is Out

The New Albion Instrumental Tracks by Paul Shapera

People asked for it.

In a million years it would never, ever have occurred to me to ever release an album of instrumental “highlights” from the New Albion Trilogy. Seriously. But i keep getting emails asking for instrumental versions of different tracks, most often from folks looking to use it as an audition song or various other sing along reasons.

So okay then. Here is a buttload of instrumental versions from the trilogy.

I picked stuff with a definite focus on singing along to. That;s the real purpose here, not to showcase the songs without vocals. So the picks heavily lean towards solo numbers, the big aria stuff and of course the most requested ones.

In answer to a question i’ve been getting also: can you make videos or recordings of yourself singing these songs and post them online? Yes, you certainly may. Go nuts. What you cannot do is charge money for it. Otherwise you may absolutely record and post on youtube or soundcloud or whatever or wherever. Credit me and my works of course, no selling it (if you wish to sell it you must speak with me), but posting it it you have my blessing.

And uh… well, there you go. All for you, my pretties.

The Bonus Act is coming along splendidly. Release date is almost certainly November, I wanted end of Oct but i cannot rush these things. I figure you want quality as do i.

    Weird…when I listened to the instrumentals, I somehow ‘heard’ the singers and the lyrics in them. I must be hallucinating or something.

      It’s not just you. 🙂 But apart from the handful of vocal bits which are still in there (“Stop! RACHAEL!”, “Would you like to initiate…”, “Why didn’t you fire?”) it really is instrumental. I can’t say it’s muscle memory because it’s mental, so it’s more just like muscle memory for the brain… so… memory, I guess. Ah, well, this comment kind of fell apart.

    I want to create myself a little request corner, since I was well-taught to sing and had a God-given voice! Any requests on a song?

    I would have loved to see a Shopogopolis on this, since its guitar really chills me to the core, but I suppose that ship has sailed. Thank you so much for this release, Paul!

    Any chance of other tracks like “The Movement 1” being added? Either way, I love this!
