The Secrets Told: Deluxe Edition is Woodland’s latest release, which includes a 24 page annotated poetry and art book and full length music CD. The album package is a “Zero-Carbon” eco-disc, printed with green inks on recycled stock with a recycled water bottle CD tray.
ABOUT THE ALBUM
For the last two years Woodlad has been writing and developing a new conceptual album called SECRETS TOLD, which is a musical exploration of the myths, lore and legends of the ancient world. The album is a rich, poetic tapestry that includes 13 tracks of original music featuring instruments from around the world including harp, hurdy gurdy, overtone flutes, cello, six and twelve string guitars, violin, bouzouki and a variety of drums and percussion instruments. Thanks to you, our Woodland community, the album will be an “independent” release, with Woodland retaining full creative control of the music and art, as well as direction over the reproduction, which will be a “Zero Carbon” eco-disc package. Our first CD since SEASONS IN ELFLAND: SHADOWS in 2010, SECRETS TOLD delves deep into new regions of inspiration and ancient landscapes of legend. Rich with romantic Mediterranean and classical themes and imbued with the mythos and folklore of Southern Europe, our music and lyrical poetry have incarnated within new songs and new instrumentation. The music of SECRETS TOLD is exotic and evocative, rhythmic and romantic, sensual and mysterious.
