Here's your album update, folks. Seven songs are complete and mixed, and the last two recordings are underway. The current plan is to release the album online (iTunes and very likely elsewhere as well) in January, and then begin a series of gigs in support of a physical CD release in the Spring. This is what I did for Wednesday Child, and that worked out very well all around.
The title of the album will be Building The Railroad, which is a phrase from one of the songs, and also a bit of a play on words, considering the recording process also involves laying down tracks. As for said tracks, there will be nine brand new songs on the album, and the physical CD will also contain a bonus cut, Holiday Road, which was this past Summer's giveaway single.
The cover art this time will feature a photograph by my friend Steve Daly, who is an excellent photographer in general, but who loves taking pictures of trains and railways. Here is a recent post on his blog about the photo in question. I knew it was perfect the moment I saw it, and am very pleased he agreed to my use of it.
