Stephen Hawking’s "A Brief History of Time" Inspires Indie Rock Album

Attention Alan Cohen Experience fans! Get ready to mark your calendars because the newest album Space & Time is set to be released August 31, 2010.

The album is a chapter-by-chapter musical interpretation of Stephen Hawking’s book “A Brief History of Time” and finds Alan Cohen Experience venturing into topics about physics, space, and the existence of the universe. Track material encompasses Albert Einstein and his contribution to physics, which can be heard on the first single “Einstein,” the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, and the mathematical relationship between the four major forces. But don’t hesitate if the subject matter seems over your head, the music still rocks and most songs will reach fans on another level and it may not even register they’re about theoretical physics.

The album was co-produced by Cohen himself and Tony Goddess of Papas Fritas, both artists play all the instrumental parts on Space & Time, with the exception of drums. The album contains an assortment of upbeat 70’s influenced power-pop wrapped around eccentric lyrics, blending rock and funk in an upbeat manner that is sure to keep listeners on their toes. The song “The Universe is Expanding” opens with a dramatic crescendo and then breaks into catchy beat draped with a blues overtone, while “Einstein” contains a party pop feel backed by a steady mix of drums and guitar. Showcasing what Cohen believes to be his best work as a songwriter, he’s excited to share this new album with fans, as he trusts their minds, “will be split open and blown apart, because this one is so freaking awesome.”
