The origin of the new album
Golan’s album, The Wrong Man, began as a folk song about a man wrongly convicted of a murder he did not commit.
Golan early in his career played this song live in clubs in Sydney and London.
Over the years, the artist turned this song into a concept for one of his albums.
He decided to compose several songs to tell the story of the invented character – Duran.
Analyzing the lyrics of this extraordinary album, it becomes clear that the story of Duran, the main character, is a heartbreaking one.
Duran is in fact a man who had a one-night stand with a woman he met in a bar but is then framed for murder by her jealous ex-husband.
The album was later made into an animated film and a stage musical by Hamilton alumni Thomas Kail.
Ross Golan, commented on the release of this new album in the form of a non-fungible token:
“I’ve been working on The Wrong Man for over fifteen years. It’s now on a journey all of its own and I’m a passenger just like everyone else. What’s fantastic about NFTs is not only the ability to deliver a mixed media conceptual album but also the ability to mint unique editions so fans can actually own a piece of The Wrong Man”.
Terra Virtua CEO, Jawad Ashraf, commented:
“Working with Ross on the world’s first NFT musical, we’re really pushing the boundaries of what’s possible through NFTs and bringing something truly original to the industry”.
