Nashville’s ZAYDE WØLF has released his brand new album Modern Alchemy, out everywhere today. ZAYDE WØLF is a relatively new project for producer, songwriter and entrepreneur Dustin Burnett. His creative empire began with one song by accident and has since skyrocketed to include over 489,000 Spotify monthly listeners with 29 million streams, 9 million YouTube views, 88,000 YouTube subscribers and his music has been heard in hundreds of  TV shows, films, trailers, commercials, video games and more.

The album title Modern Alchemy is derived from the medieval chemistry of converting poor metals into gold. This ties into the albums theme of self-betterment and pushing yourself into something greater than where you came from or how people may have defined you. It is powered by the previously released singles "Gladiator" and "Rule the World" which collectively have earned over 1.8 million streams.  This is a topic of self-betterment is very close to home from Burnett, who grew up in Metropolis, IL a small town in Illinois best known for its fictional son, Clark Kent aka Superman. The riverfront factory town is a shell of what it used to be, and the level of success Burnett has achieved, both personally and professionally, is beyond anything he ever imagined.

The songs on this record are packed with uplifting and motivational lyrics mixed with the epic sonic production ZAYDE WØLF has become known for. “Next Level” encompasses the mentality of what this record is all about. It’s about reaching for new heights and always striving to become the best possible version of yourself you can possibly be. “The Crown” was inspired by Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. “Higher Than High” is one of the most personal tracks. “When I was young, we didn't have much,” says Burnett, “but I always had a head full of dreams of what I wanted to do with my life and celebrating others. I wanted this song to make everyone feel like they were standing on a mountain with the sun shining bright in their life.” The motivational nature of of these songs has led ZAYDE WØLF to accrue a dedicated fan base around the world. Modern Alchemy has already charted in over 25 countries on the iTunes overall charts and in the U.S. debuted in the top ten Alternative charts.

In addition to being the creative mastermind behind ZAYDE WØLF, Burnett is also the co-owner of a drum sample and loops company called That Sound that has become a staple for top level artists and producers. The business has more than doubled in the past year, due to the quality of their work, making their live drum samples more in demand than ever before.

With Modern Alchemy, Burnett knows that real achievement is in the journey and the struggle. With this record, he is excited to share his incredible experiences with fans so that they too might be inspired by his journey through the music, to reach for new heights.
