It was announced on May 28, 2015 that it would become 'THE ISLAND' on July 1, and include access to iamamiwhoami's entire discography.
To whom it may concern. sent an email to Islanders announcing that the release date for THE ISLAND would be pushed to July 17 due to the big changes on the website demanding more time. Server issues then caused THE ISLAND to be postponed until July 20.
"The aim with BLUE’s digital edition is to use the digital format's strengths in a way that supports iamamiwhoami’s release format and present a new way for the listeners and viewers to consume an album together with the followers of iamamiwhoami themselves.” says Jonna Lee. The island is created in collaboration with creators of the growing iamamiwhoami community “iambountyfan”, a site running independently since 2010 and a vital focus point for many iamamiwhoami followers. In the creative team for both the BLUE island and the BLUE physical ltd. editions is also designer and illustrator and Jan Scharlau who to some is also a known follower of iamamiwhoami. “iamamiwhoami creates music and visuals in connection with a continuous storyline, and I want to put emphasis on our vision by presenting a functional way to experience it. The BLUE island puts our album in focus and aims to enhance the digital format. A physical item is viewed as more valuable than a digital service. The value lies in the work and the value of the experience. Who better to help develop this?"Edit
