Untitled BT album
(2016)

The untitled tenth studio album by electronic musician BT was released digitally on October 14, 2016, the physical USB release was shipped on December 2, 2016, and includes over two hours of music with 4K drone videos shot for the album.[1]

Due to the restrictions of most music sites, which forbid blank album titles, BT chose to name the album the underscore character "_". BT has admitted that this title has resulted in complaints from fans about difficulties in finding the track on popular services due to the inability of most search engines to handle the "_" character.[2][3]

Background[edit]

On December 14, 2015, BT disclosed news to DJ Mag about a new album to come by early 2016. Similar to This Binary Universe, BT explains that “the entire record is recorded in a way [I’ve] never recorded anything before,” and that the record has a "modular, ambient aesthetic". Track names that were mentioned in the article include "Chromatophore", "Ω", "Indivism" and "582",[4] on August 1, 2016, BT spoke to Mix about the album, which was recently completed. The album is intended to be named by the listeners. Additional track names that were mentioned in the article include "Artifacture", "Five Hundred and Eighty Two", and "Found in Translation", on October 10, 2016, BT announced on Facebook that the parts of the album ("Artifacture", "Indivism" and "Ω") would be released in "movements"[5] on October 14, 2016.[1]

The album was recorded in Maine, Maryland, Iceland, China, Poland, Bora Bora, Tokyo, Australia and many other places around the world.[6]
