Since the release of the last Deleyaman album in 2006 entitled 3, over 25 titles were written and composed by the band. To avoid an overdose or a lengthy double album and to preserve the contrast between different moods, it was decided to present Fourth in two parts: Fourth (part one) and Fourth (part two).
Deleyaman’s Fourth part one includes 11 tracks and was entirely recorded, mixed and mastered in the band’s studio in Normandy, France.
The overall mood of this album is different from their prior releases. Though the sincerity with which they continue to explore their art is a constant in Deleyaman’s music which remains difficult to classify into a single genre. Their sound is quite recognizable due to several aspects. The most obvious is without a doubt the presence of the ancient armenian wind instrument – the duduk – in many of their compositions. Another aspect of their music is the use of several languages by both vocalists of the band, Beatrice Valantin and Aret Madilian.
Some of the lyrics of Fourth (part one) were inspired by American poets E.A. Robinson, A. Hecht, R.W. Emerson, E.A. Poe, H. Crane, T. Stickney and the Lebanese mystic poet Khalil Gibran. Most of the titles are sung in english except for two tracks sung in armenian and track #8 Jardin sung in french, the words taken from a poem (Nous n’irons plus au bois – by T. de Banville).
