I have started working on the new record, and I just want to make sure that by the time it’s done everyone has their expectations set. ‘Mercy’ was a very dark and intimate album, and I won’t be making it again. This next album is going to be a bit more upbeat (in tempo, not necessarily tone, although there will be some of that too), have more instruments, more layers, and a fuller sound. I can hear it in my head, now I just need to get it all recorded so that you can hear it too.
Also, if you haven’t purchased ‘Mercy’ yet, now is definitely the time to do so. The money I earn from it goes directly into keeping me fed and working on the new record. Also on the next printing of ‘Mercy’ there will be an important graphic change on the cover so the current edition might one day be a collectors item. It might just be a fancy coaster for your coffee table, but at least it will be a rare coaster.
