I’m off to Manchester on Sunday to record a couple of live, acoustic B sides for the ‘What’s love without meaning?‘ single.
I know I’m going to record a chilled out version of ‘Remember who you are‘, but I’m unsure what other track to record.
I have a few new tunes that would suit acoustic really nicely. I may just have to flip a coin.
The single is available on the 17th December.
The music video for the track will be up in the next few days. I hope you’ll like.
I’ve been working on new tracks for my third album recently. Obviously I’m not even thinking about recording it, as the second album has just come out, and next year is earmarked to tour the album Worldwide.
My label have had contact from across Europe, Australia and Canada about tours next year, so that’s very exciting. It only seems like yesterday that I was on the phone, begging for support slots. I must admit, I don’t miss doing that!
The new tracks I’ve been working on are very mellow. In fact, they’d probably give Nick Drake a run for his money, on the depressing scale! But fear not, I tend to write a bunch of tunes that reflect my mood, so when I’m happy, I’ll write another load, and make a nicely balanced album.
What is funny for me, is ‘A Brand New Battle‘ was recorded, in my mind, as my final album. I was then going to go away and do something else. I even thought about politics. Christ knows Westminster needs someone with some morality among it’s ranks. Mind you, I’m not sure my temper could cope with the other bastards!
Since I recorded the record, I’ve signed a deal with Eromenos, performed at Wembley Arena, and am now off on a World tour next year. I guess this musician stuff ain’t all that bad after all.
Have a lovely weekend. I’m off to an opening party of Revolution de Cuba tonight. Don’t worry, it’s a bar. Me, Che, and Fidel aren’t planning anything.
