FORT LAUDERDALE, FL - Dark electronic music artist Miss FD releases her fourth studio album today on Quantum Release Records, titled Transcendence. The album features seven new compositions written and performed by Miss FD, and includes collaborations with Vulture Culture and Robert Dante.
The new album is available on iTunes, Spotify, and other digital media carriers. Orders for physical CDs placed directly through MissFD.com include availability of a limited edition 4-CD discography with Transcendence and Miss FD's prior albums Monsters in the Industry (2010), Love Never Dies (2011) and Comfort for the Desolate (2013), as well as other exclusive merchandise.
The opening track "Despair" is also featured in a new music video directed by Chad Michael Ward, which "invokes feelings of isolation and existential suffering," says Miss FD. "Once accepted through self-examination, these emotions can become a source of primal healing, rather than an over-medicated symptom."
Robert Dante, featured on earlier Miss FD songs, contributes string and guitar arrangements throughout Transcendence, and a piano performance of Miss FD's "Transcendence Intermezzo". Vulture Culture's Alex Dalliance's production work is featured on "Delirium".
Introspection and acceptance thematically permeate the album, which concludes with "Icarus", after the Greek mythological figure who famously soared on wings too close to the Sun.

March 9, 2018 - Directed by Chad Michael Ward, the music video for "Despair" was filmed last summer in Hollywood, CA.
Conjuring imagery of a newly summoned life's suffering and isolation, the video expresses the feeling that the forces behind our existence and personal sense of conscious awareness are beyond our understanding or control.
"The unknown forces behind the unfolding of our lives are represented in the video by 'The Sorceress' pulling the strings behind the circumstances which have brought 'The Girl' into existence. Filled with questions for which the answers seem out of reach, 'The Girl' in the music video represents the condition of being born human and the suffering that comes along with the experience of life." -Miss FD
The track is the first glimpse off her upcoming album Trancendence, to be released on March 27, 2018.
