Breakout production talent Tom Ferry reveals his debut album ‘shapes’ on ChillYourMind’.
Over 13 tracks, the Liverpudlian artist shows off every side of his studio persona from uplifting, piano-driven house through to darker, deep house cuts.
Alongside 8 unreleased tunes, each featuring a diverse collection of producers, writers and vocalists, the album includes the afrobeat-tinged new single, ‘No Tally’ featuring X-Factor winning R&B group, Rak-Su, established producer, Embody, and written by acclaimed songwriter, Jenson Vaughan who’s worked with everyone from Madonna and Britney to David Guetta and Sigala. Attracting such an esteemed writer to the project is testament to Ferry’s own credibility and talent.
To understand where an album concept comes from and the creative thinking behind it, it’s best described by the producer himself. Tom Ferry explains the psychedelic workings of his mind.
When I think about music, I think about shapes. When I imagine a kick, I imagine the shape of the waveform in my mind, so there’s a kind of mysterious, deeper meaning in there. A lot of songs have a different shape in my head. Like circles, squares, octagons etc., individually representing the symbolism I feel when making a song. Nothing is linear, it all encompasses a bigger entity.
This long-awaited album also includes 4 singles released throughout 2021 including, ‘Not Going Home’ which was playlisted on KISS DANCE and featured on ‘Love Island USA’; the irresistible melodies of ‘Underwater’ featuring BRIT-School grad, EVALINA; the melodic summer smash, ‘Come Closer’, and ‘Make That Move’, which saw Ferry’s darker vibes hit rotation at KISS DANCE, Gaydio and Electric Radio.
The Axtone-approved Tom Ferry who has recently crashed through 80 million streams, now shows in one full body of work just why he’s a genuine talent to watch. Stream ‘shapes’ below.
