OK, yes. It was supposed to be done last year. But then it was all emergency rooms and doctors offices and surgeries and – well, you get the idea. But this year…in fact next week(!), my new album will finally be done!
Below is a vine video I just posted of Lisa and I doing a listening session of the test mixes for 11 of the 12 songs. I know, I know. But that 12th song – “Little Egypt” – only needs music, which I will write this weekend. Lisa wrote the lyrics a year ago. In the looping video, you can see the song list for the whole album on the bottom right, if you look carefully;).
So by Sunday (it’s Friday, Feb 14th – we are having a great Valentine’s Day:)), the 12th and last song will be written, and recording will have begun. But Tuesday the album will be submitted for mastering and the manufacturing process begins so that we can have CDs (yeah, people still want those:)), by the time we leave for Mississippi. We’ll be doing a release concert there at an event called Gulf Wars (for The Society for Creative Anachronism – SCA).
