A quick update on the album progress for you since I’ve been staring at a computer screen pretty much non-stop for the last two weeks. Ironic that since I quit my IT job I’m spending more time at a desk in front of a machine than before. At least this is music software though.
The recordings are sounding great and I have a lot of production ideas for each of the songs. I’ve even roped in the assistance of Alex Cornish to do some string arranging, Italy-based keys maestro Paolo Apollo Negri to put some incredible Hammond and Rhodes parts down and a number of very special guest backing vocalists. My incredibly talented cousin Tom Jennings will be doing the album art as well!
Some of these songs are more than a few years old and so this album has been a long time coming. I want it to be as good as it can be so I’m not fixing a release date until the mixes are just right. It will be sometime in the Spring of 2013 however.
Meanwhile, I’m working on a 3-track single featuring one track from the album and 2 ‘bonus’ tracks. More on that soon!
