The Carnival will be released on July 11th. Unless i just suddenly decide to release it early. Like Thurs the 6th. But definitely by July 11th. Advance copies are going out this evening.
Obviously i have no way of knowing whether or not you’ll like the album, but if you DO like the album, there ARE 2 things i know: That if i say The Floozy totally needs her own song you’d say “Oh hell yeah.” And if i said, a song should be made about… uhm… without spoilers…. uh… you know, a song about “back in the day”… you’ll understand after you hear the album… you’d probably scream and try to grab my through the computer screen and demand that i make it right this second.
This sort of thing is why, when i’m done with the Lost Hallow albums (one more to go after this) i will be making an album of stand alone stories/songs from various points in the New Albion lore. Which is a pretty big time span and lot of potential side characters and events. My question then, what would you like to see? As a stand alone song/story.
I would prefer not to do things that have been covered. SO for instance, i wouldn’t do a song about the gambler and the monk, i’ve done it as well as i’m ever going to. BUT, i would do a song about some three time loser who showed up to watch the game and bet on it in hoped that he can make enough money to… who knows, pay to have his daughter sent to him from back east, but he’s totally fucking up all his bets and the more he loses the more he spends on alcohol and so he ends up praying to god to please help the gambler win more hands the next day even though the gambler’s whole point is to try and disprove the existence of god… that would be worth something.
Although if i ever get that Balkan Rock Opera made it’s actually about the monk when the monk was younger. But that’s irrelevant.
Sooooo…. yeah. What stories would you like to see? What points of characters in the canon would like to be on that album?
