Christopher Tin, composer of the Civilization IV theme song "Baba Yetu", today announced that his debut album Calling All Dawns is now available for pre-order. CDs sold during the pre-order period will be individually signed and numbered by Christopher Tin. The CDs will ship on the album's official release date of October 1st; and on that day, those who have pre-ordered will be e-mailed a link to a complimentary download of the full album. Calling All Dawns consists of twelve songs in twelve different languages. It is a narrative told in three parts--day, night, and dawn--about life, death and rebirth. Each song flows seamlessly into the next, and the album ends on the same chord that it opens with--thereby representing the fluid, cyclical nature of the universe. It carries a strong message of unity: that regardless of race, culture and religious belief, we are all connected through our common human experience: 01. Baba Yetu (Swahili) 02.
