McGowan releases album on all platforms

Now, this album isn’t a new one. In fact, Planet 9 was released back in 2018. But, Rose McGowan is releasing the album on all platforms like Spotify and Apple Music, with the idea that ‘art heals’. It took her 5 years to record and film the project in various locations across Europe. But, this isn’t just a commercial project for McGowan. She made this album based on a utopian planet she had imagined during her childhood.

In her official statement, Rose McGowan said this utopian world held a special place for her:

When I was a small child going through tough times, I created a utopian world in my mind and I named it Planet 9. I felt safe on this invented planet of mine. I also used to wonder what sounds existed on my planet. As life went on, I forgot about how special my planet was, I forgot I could go there in times of trouble.

While filming and recording the album, news of evidence of a 9th planet broke out in our solar system broke out in 2015. That inspired Rose McGowan to name her album Planet 9:

Six years ago, astronomers found a new planet they named Planet 9 – it’s the new planet that demoted Pluto to a star. Holy s! They found my Planet 9! Around the same time, I met some French electronic musicians, and I decided to make music that has the power to lift your spirit. I know this, art heals.

Part of the proceeds will go towards Coronavirus relief

McGowan also mentioned that 20% of the proceeds of purchases made on Bandcamp will be donated towards COVID-19 relief. This is welcome news in the current circumstances. Moreover, you can listen to a 10-minute sonic excursion from her album for free as well. The song had the script of the ‘Tears in Rain’ monologue from Blade Runner in it.
