After some months of preparation, studio redesign and song writing we are more or less at the point where it makes sense to start recording!
So I got to the point where I had a bunch of disparate songs, but to me an album isn’t a random collection of songs, they need something that gels them together into something greater than that. I’m not talking about a concept album or anything, but a stylistic, look and feel (or listen and feel perhaps). I’ve finally got a theme in mind that I think works, and with a little tweaking here and there, the songs are starting to feel as though they are part of this theme.
More of that in future posts.
For now I have the task of taking all these new songs and deciding which are genuine candidates for the album and which aren’t, and once again I’ll be ruminating on each of the songs along the way.
I hope you enjoy the journey.
