Beverly Glenn-Copeland has announced a new record. Transmissions: The Music of Beverly Glenn-Copeland is out September 25 via Transgressive, a new label for the singer, composer, and transgender electronic pioneer’s past and future catalog. The career-spanning album is led by the single “River Dreams,” which is Glenn-Copeland’s first new track in over 15 years, according to a press release. Hear it below.
Discussing the new song in a press release, Beverly Glenn-Copeland said:
I feel that music originates from the Universe itself, and it comes to me via something I call the UBS i.e. The Universal Broadcasting System. This song “River Dreams” came to me through the UBS. The song has a feeling to it. It is both calming and interesting because of the unusual time signature which is 17 eighth notes to every bar. Musically that is expressed as 17/8 instead of time signatures with which we are more familiar like 4/4 or 3/4. I recorded it in my home studio sometime in 2019.
