Got lots to do today so I’ll try to blast through a few updates. Got a lot of music coming at you in the next few weeks. Read on —->
SOUNDTRACK FOR THE VOICES IN MY HEAD VOL. 02 (CHAPTER 01)
With little to no warning, it will be here next week. We’re looking right now to make this live on Thursday, June 10th. 4 songs total, one of which is “The Wings of Icarus,” a collaboration with James Dooley. “Adrift on Celestial Seas” is a 20 minute track I initially wrote to try to lull myself to sleep at night. Taken from a live piano piece I randomly banged out to my iphone when power had gone down in the studio I was working at one fine day. I took that 5 minute performance and turned it into a 20 minute lullaby.
I’m planning on pulling together Beta Cessions material so you guys can hear early demos of these tracks if you so desire.
WISH UPON A BLACKSTAR (CHAPTER 03)
Oh yeah, it’s almost here. I fact I’ve had all your vocals imported into a session, all stacked and ready to be brought into the main Lucky One session. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, then you missed the chance to sing on the new Celldweller album.
I’m hoping to start mixing “The Lucky One” and “Tainted” next week. We’re still finalizing art and new shirts, stickers, dog tags etc, so It will realistically be an early July release. Do not hold me to that, I’m just speculating…
If you’re submitting art for Chapter 03, deadline is June 27th (which happens to be a really good friend’s birthday. We’ll celebrate together by calling this day “The Art Deadline for Chapter 03.”
THE LUCKY ONE (MUSIC VIDEO)
I sometimes change my mind like I change my underwear – at least once a month. After some deliberation, I’ve decided to make “The Lucky One” the first music video I shoot for “Wish Upon a Blackstar”. There may be an outside chance some of you can be in the video. I’m not 100% sure yet, so I’ll hold my tongue for now.
I DO think it may be possible for you to get involved for the video for the liveshow however. In almost the same manner you guys recorded your “I AM’s” for The Lucky One and submitted them, I am contemplating the possibility of having you record VIDEO (you and a bunch of friends, family and pets?) singing the “I AM’s” for the video content that will drive the upcoming live show. No details yet – still putting it together. Just telling you so you can occasionally remind me that I still need to take care of this.
