After recording Campfire, I took the plunge into fatherhood, and chucked the guitar down for a bit. Seven weeks of colic can really mess with your mojo y’know?
Elora is (kinda) sleeping through now so with a fair bit more sleep, I have been able to complete the new record, ready to head back into the studio.
It will be recorded over a few visits with three more tracks being laid down this time, and then another couple of studio sessions taking the record to ten tracks overall.
The record doesn’t have a name, or a theme as yet. Campfire was a different direction for me sound wise, so I intend to follow that road and see where it leads me.
Recording in a home studio in Glasgow gives me a lot more freedom as the sessions aren’t structured. If I get a vocal idea at 3am, I can grab the mic and lay it down. I always get my best ideas after a few red wines. Well, at least I think I do.
Me, Jono and Stephen have put the list of tracks together and we need to pick three for this particular session. I’m not sure which ones yet, but they’ll get recorded eventually so I suppose it’s kinda irrelevant.
Red Brick Heart, My Favourite Summer and Action Over Hope are currently winning.
