To webpage What’s Up Chip Davis tells that Mannheim Steamroller will release an album called “Exotic Spaces” in March 2018. In addition to his musical projects, Davis has also co-authored a book trilogy with writer Mark Valenti aimed at kids and young adults.
Regarding “Exotic Spaces” Davies says:
“I didn’t call it ‘Fresh Aire 9’ because most composers, when they’ve written a ninth symphony, usually die right after that,” Davis said with a chuckle. “Like Beethoven, the guy’s like, ‘Nine symphonies – bye.’” (…)
The unique album features songs that were inspired by famous – and exotic – sites, such as Egypt’s Pyramids and the Taj Mahal.
The book trilogy is inspired by a timber wolf and horse Davis has on his 150-acre property near Omaha, Nebraska. He has written several children’s books, and hopes the trilogy will hit stores sometime next year.
“The thing that inspired it was watching them play together, and they’re not supposed to do that. But they grew up together, since they were 8 weeks old,” Davis said. “I was like, ‘I wonder what’s going through their minds?’ So we started making up stories of what we thought was going through their minds.”
