Last night I had the second recording session for songs for the new album. The working title of the new album is ‘2017 Album’ – showing great imagination there. (Update June 2018: The new album is called ‘Found My Way’.)
Trying to spend some time making the new album has been a challenge recently. Work on the day job has gone through the roof and I feel like I’m a bit behind on my (admittedly non-existent) schedule.
I recently ordered some more copies of the Life Line CD as I had no more copies of the last run left – and they have now arrived. This time the CD is contained within a card envelope rather than the plastic boxes of the original release.
When the Life Line album was first finished and released back in 2009, I wasn’t performing on a regular basis. Apart from the actual recording process, I was even playing the guitar very much at all.
So the initial run of copies of the Life Line CD was very small – in fact I replicated them all myself on my laptop. My laptop then had a laser etching application and so I got hold of some two-sided discs and made them all – so completing the do-it-yourself nature of the project.
I have just uploaded a new rough demo version of It’s Only Love to Soundcloud.
The song was originally written in the 90s, and was a Britpop style guitar thrash. This version is stripped down – just me and an acoustic guitar to let the emotions in the song shine through. It’s obviously quite a sad song about betrayal and the end of a relationship.
It’s the first finished demo of the few that I’ve been working on recently – demos for songs that are going to be on my next (still as yet untitled) album.
Hope you like it.
