Billionaire Igor Rybakov releases the single 'Protecting Love' which he performed while in self-isolation accompanied by an online stadium of 1,000 people

July 1st 2020 will see the release of a second album, 'Audio Films', in the Rybakov Music Project, which includes the single 'Protecting Love'. The composition of the song is noteworthy for having been recorded earlier this year during a period of self-isolation. In order to create the effect of performing in a stadium the decision was taken to have 1,000 voices sing the refrain of the song, online, together with Igor Rybakov. All the recorded voices were subsequently mixed in an 'online stadium', constituting a first for the Russian music market. David Guetta had used a similar technique when he recorded the UEFA EURO2016 championship official song 'This One's For You'.

'By tradition 'Protecting Love', like all my love songs, is dedicated to my wife Katya. It's all about love,' declares Igor Rybakov. 'I want everyone to love and to be loved! That constitutes happiness! And, of course, it makes me especially happy that I have been joined in song by 1,000 people, albeit in an online format. Music is the way I broaden my horizons. Through it my children have more understanding of me as a person, I can expound my Life Hacks, motivate other members of my family and the business community to new triumphs and achievements. And, needless to say, creativity in music has helped me come up with new ideas for business. Each individual song is an artistic interpretation of an aspect of my personal history and its presence in my life. When you listen to my second album you will hear the stories I tell you of my life, but don't repeat them in your own life, don't step on the same rake as I did or you'll bash your head in as I did . . . unless you want to!'

As a way of attracting additional attention to the album's release, Igor Rybakov recorded an accompanying promo video in which the entrepreneur's face replaces that of the rapper 6ix9ine (Six-Nine). The words spoken on the video say: 'On July 1 st everything's definitely going to change, some will vote YES, others will vote NO. I know this date will affect everyone, that's why it's the day for me to release the album. I've been working while others have been lolling about stuffing their faces. ZOOM, ZOOM in the morning, ZOOM, ZOOM all night. And you know which way to vote on 1st July, don't you?'

Work on recording the 'Audio Films' album took nine months. Yet another speciality of the album is that each song is preceded by its own introductory pre-history ̶ a short sketch designed to prepare the listener for the next ensuing composition. This is the reason why the album has been entitled 'Audio Films': listening to the song, one can experience a visual representation of its subject matter.

The album has 11 tracks:

1. YOUR CHOICE A daily motivational affirmation highlighting the vital importance of belief in oneself, and how it can it can be brought to bear on personality development through conversing with oneself and with the people in the stadium.

2. TO INFLUENCE Storytelling from Igor Rybakov's life history: where he started his journey, the path he took, and continues to take, 'A thirst to change everything around and in me' ̶ the phrase that became the basis of Igor Rybakov's world-view.

3. THE CAUCASUS A Vocalise, saturated by the atmosphere of a journey to the Caucasus.

4. APPLES Based on a true story. It says everything. 'I shall never, ever, forget this trip, that's for sure. Crap happens. Signed Rybakov. Full stop.' An event that in time made the author even stronger.

5. I DON'T KNOW An experience common to everyone: all you want to do is get to sleep, but loud music is playing somewhere, and the result is the start of a serious conversation.

6. WHAT WILL BE WILL BE The song has two sub-texts. One is a conversation with a Grandmaster; the other a reflection on all that has happened in the year 2020.

7. MEN DREAMING An interlude about dreams that come to men.

8. A NEW DAY A vision in song of the path through life.

9. GIRLS DREAMING A musical sketch of a schoolgirl disco in which the naïve but optimistic DJ wishes everyone 'all the very best'.

10. I WISH Such is perhaps everyone's desire. Therefore there is no reason why a song about money cannot be interpreted like this: tender, magical, as if dawdling dreamily at a high school graduation.

11. FOR HER When a song is for her, a miracle must be taking place, and your singing is backed by hundreds of voices in support.

12. PROTECTING LOVE All Igor Rybakov's love songs are dedicated to his wife Yekaterina. This new song is sung to the accompaniment of an online stadium choir.

13. TENDER MORNING A story from the life of creative people. Night. Inspiration. Song. At this point enters your other half . . .

Musical contributors to the recording include The Moscow Gospel Team Voices; the operatic soloist from the Vienna Conservatoire Emil Makhmutov; Igor KORRY Kalinin; Anna Usova; Asia Sorshneva; Yegor Kolonutov; Vasili Gorshkov; Nikolai Tisenko; Aleksandr Tars; Anton Rics and Ilgis Abdrakhmanov. Musical producer of the album: Yevgeni Chernykh.

The album was recorded in the Igor Matvienko studio by the engineering team of Konstantin Matafonov, who has collaborated for the past 15 years with Timati, the Blackstar label and many other popular artistes.
