BT Releases Two New Versions Of His Grammy-Nominated 'These Hopeful Machines'

Last February, BT released his sixth studio album, These Hopeful Machines (Nettwerk/Black Hole), to critical acclaim, leading to a GRAMMY® nomination for “Best Dance/Electronic Album.” The album carried the listener through two hours of sweeping orchestral arrangements, pulsating electronic beats, heartfelt vocal melodies and elemental acoustic guitar. BT now presents two *NEW* versions of this classic album, giving the listener two completely different experiences: These Humble Machines out April 26, and These Re-Imagined Machines out May 31.

For These Humble Machines, BT takes the original Grammy®-nominated two-hour opus and concentrates it into an intense 60-minute experience, allowing fans to experience his compositional mastery and technical prowess on one thrilling disc. Check out this new version below. 

On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, These Re-Imagined Machines is a two-disc collection of BT’s original compositions on These Hopeful Machines “re-imagined” by some of BT’s most respected peers, including: Armin van Buuren, Sultan & Ned Shepard and Chicane. Six of the 17 tracks have never before been released. (Keep reading for track listing and more information.)
