It’s that time again, where I put a new album together. Having spent the last year reworking old back catalogue, it’s doubly exciting to prepare new material. I’ve got 13 tracks currently, all brand new, all original songs, written recently. Such is the way that I work I already have a title and a potential running order, some strong arrangement and production ideas. I have a week designated in September to record and my usual merry band on board to help me realise my concept. I don’t want to tell you what to expect exactly, but this will surprise and not surprise you in equal measures. I think this is my favourite part, having the ideas, letting them form and present themselves to me and then meticulously shaping them into cohesive whole.
