I’ve been working on a new set of songs. A number of them have been around in one form or another for a very long time, and others are more recent. I’m starting to feel a little bit of momentum to get them finished up and out of my head once and for all so I can create more new material.
This (as yet untitled) album has become a lot of fun for me to work on for a few reasons:
- I’m consciously trying some new production styles and instrumentation
- I’m playing almost all of the instruments myself except for drums, and I’ve had a chance to work with a couple drummers I really like
- I’m using some new songwriting approaches and trying to break out of my comfort zone a little bit
I’ll explore those reasons a little more in some upcoming entries. It’s a learning experience that I want to record for posterity.
This is not an April Fools’ Day joke, I mean it. Seriously, man. I’m not kidding.
