Well barbecue my salamander and call it a pickle, i do believe this album is in the bag and ready to go.
The whole box set is almost ready, i’m just working out the financial aspects to do the manufacturing.
As such, i was questioning whether to wait to release the album until after the box set had shipped, but the smart move is to release The Room Beneath New Albion online ASAP and use the proceeds to finance some of the box set manufacturing.
Which would mean i’d release the new album on Bandcamp… really soon. Like… a few days perhaps.
I need to do a once over today, but i’m almost ready to set it in stone. It’s solid. It’s about done.
I don’t believe in releasing albums on the weekend, but… i don’t know why. There’s stuff to DO on the weekend. Tuesdays are more boring, a better time to release an album. It’s Tuesday now, but i cannot release it today, nor tomorrow. Thursday, though. I could put it online Thursday perhaps. If that’s not possible…Monday? Tuesday?
Yeah. Soooo… new album. Coming real soon.
If you’re ordering the box set and you want to wait until it arrive (mid dec) to listen, i salute you. It will be online to hear should you wish. For those not ordering the box set who are happy with digital copies of the New Albion albums, because the new album is a normal album length (53 minutes) instead of the usual double album length (90 to 100 minutes) i will sell the new album for $5 instead of the normal $10 for the operas. (with proceeds going to fund the manufacture of the 6 CD box set)
