What a strange year it has been. Frankly, though it has not been as bad as 2020, it certainly has been stranger.
This new album has taken so many turns I am not sure how to describe it anymore. What started as a sequel to my last album "A Hero's Journey" then changed into something entirely different. Just when I thought I know what this album was going to be, I decided to change it up again!
As of now, 11 songs are possibly going to be included in this release. What was originally going to be 6 originals and 3 interpretation/covers has now turned into a possible 5 originals and 6 interpretation/covers. Also, one of the songs clocks in at a hefty 8 minutes! However these songs turn out, I plan on there being at least one surprise on this project... one that I have never done before.
I still aim for late this year or early next year as the release date. The songs have been really fun to record (if not frustrating at times, especially the 8 minute song). This project has also taken me back to my original 2008 album. Unlike "It's Christmas" and "A Hero's Journey", there is no theme to this album. It is a collection of songs. Some I have recently recorded, at least 1 I recorded back in 2017 that I never released.
Be safe everyone!!!
