"Afterworld" The new release from All India Radio (Martin Kennedy) due June.


"Afterworld was written and recorded during Australia’s coronavirus lockdown. It was a chance to do something different and take some risks.


There's a guest appearance by Canadian prog metal & ambient music legend Devin Townsend and I do a cover of one of my favorite Pink Floyd songs 'Set the Controls for the Heart of The Sun'.


Afterworld is probably my favorite A.I.R. album since Echo Other (2006) our self titled album in 2003." - All India Radio


The album art is by Gilbert Williams, one of the pioneers of the 1970s visionary art movement which evolved hand in hand with the New Age music movement before it went ultra-cheesy. His art has graced the covers of many New Age albums as well as Crosby Stills & Nash and his artwork is again in demand with a new appreciation and reissue of many classic electronic New Age albums. The stunning 2014 double album release, I Am The Center (New Age Music In America, 1950-1990), from Light in the Attic records put both New Age music and Gilbert back on the map. I was thrilled that Gilbert let me use his magnificent 1989 painting Homeward Travellers.
