Mappe Of will release 'Celestial Version' on June 22 2018. The all instrumental ambient interpretation of his debut album "A Northern Star, A Perfect Stone" will be available on Paper Bag.
"One of my aims with "A Northern Star, A Perfect Stone" was to allow each song to occupy a unique environment," says Mappe Of in a press release. "With the "Celestial Version", I wanted to revisit these environments as though floating above them, in a dream state of sorts. The textures are familiar and the melodies float by like faint memories, but the absence of the human voice suspends you from reality. It was composed as one piece, each environment blending into the next as you pass through them. I wanted to create something simultaneously meditative and adventurous."
Mappe Of will be playing a series of festivals over the summer.
