I’m not far off finishing this record, honest.
My original intention was to make a stark, stripped-down record, but I quickly got carried away with the idea of working with some awesome people who I love and admire, so it’s starting to sound like the opposite of that.
So far I’ve had all sorts of people round to record; John playing the guitar, Emily and Gill singing, Justin doing a bit of guitar and singing, as well as contributions from Martin, Inge, Chad, Dan, and god know who else.
I hope to be finished in about a month or so, which means it’ll be out late spring/early summer and it’ll be worth the wait, unless you don’t like music.
In the meantime, I’ve been playing the occasional show, getting used to being a solo performer and working out how to give people a good time without turning into some sort of earnest singer-songwriter character. I’m planning on keeping it this way for the time being, but once the prizes and trophies arrive my good intentions will be out the window.
