Some background: The early demos for these songs range from a few months to a few years old, but the majority of the work that went into the album was during the first half of this year. With all travel plans cancelled until further notice, I slowed my lifestyle way down and spent almost every day from March til August wandering around Sydney, listening to podcasts and music, and then coming home and chipping away at these songs. It was an extremely fun, rewarding and explorative process – the closest I’ve felt to the free-spiritedness I had when I first started writing music (way before ever releasing it), but informed by everything I’ve learnt and experienced in the last few years of tours and travel. I can’t thank Chris (drums) and Simon (bass, mixing, co-production) enough for the amount of effort, energy & magic they added to these songs, as well as my amazing guests, Dave (keys), Devesh & Aleks (voices, additional production), John (sax) and Amy (harp). Yes, there is a 9+ minute song with an electro-acoustic harp solo in it.
Pre-order stuff: I’ve spent the last few weeks tirelessly working on all the artwork and merch designs with Alex Pryle (who has done pretty much all my art since 2012) and my dear pals at Sheet Happens Publishing in Toronto. We’ve put together a number of different formats and bundles, including vinyl, my first cassette, a couple of shirts, a candle, and a 1000-piece puzzle! Since we’ve all been spending more time at home than usual, I thought it would be fun to offer a couple of ways to enhance the album experience. All these items ship worldwide.
There are also Australia/NZ and UK/Europe store options with the CD and a t-shirt, for those of you who don’t feel the need to float away in a vanilla/grapefruit candle haze while you listen to the album. As a token of thanks to my local fam, the first 100 Aussie bundles will come with a signed CD.
There’ll be another single or two, a couple of videos, and a bunch of giveaways that I will be back in your inbox to tell you about before the album comes out. Until then, hope you’re all as well as can be, and thank you for supporting me and my music so far!
