4am! But geeeez louise does "I'm in love with you" sound goood! there is of course that possibility that it's because if's 4am it sounds good...but for now I'm rocking in the studio...I've really gotta get my skates on....it's the little vocal things you want to add or change. Matching up the sound of a previously recorded vocal form a different room, different compressor..very time consuming! I much prefer the way I've sung it now. quite naughty...but nice.
I've gotta get some kip. Doing well on 5 hours a night it seems. Loosens up inhibitions when your tired and i become more spontaneous and it's all about the broad strokes.
Sorry about the iGrill guys...It's just gonna have to wait 'til I'm done! I have to go to Devon to get the album mastered which is a few hours on the train, so on my way back i'll get stuck in on my laptop...xxx
Love and all the good stuff!!!
xxx Happy thanks giving for those of you Stateswide.
Hey you guys...I have been a tad slack in the blog department... but i've been rocking in the studio. Here's a photo of the piano I was recording...sounds MUCH better than it looks here...it's great to have it on the record, it's the "Sleep" piano. I'm SUPER excited coz this week the new website'll be up with some samples of the album to wet your tastebids and make it almost unbearable to wait any longer to hear the rest of it! I couldn't decide what was worse not playing you anything at all until it gets released...hopefully Feb/ March next year...or let you hear little bits leading up to it...It was more me not being able to keep it to myself actually...but hey. It's set up so that two 1 sec samples will go up each day. There are 5 in total I have put up...I don't want to let you hear all the songs coz it'll ruin the surprise completely. There's a good mixture there though.
I've booked the mastering date for 6th December so ready or not...I've gotta go there to put this part of the new album's journey to bed. It's a place in Devon...you can have a look at the website here... Crikey I'd better be ready! There's no real reason to get it done by that date, only if I didn't set a deadline it simply would NEVER get finished! Also...that'll be almost exactly one year since I started work on it. Then I am going to party my little asssss off and celebrate! YIHAAAAAAAAAAAAA.
Oh my....I can hardly contain myself. The website looks soooo cool. Sample plant and all...I really hope in a couple of days for it to be up. We're still working on it. Eventually we'll have all the videos I've ever done up there, a full discography, loadsa photos of my ugly mug in various situations. Bits of all the songs I've been on, collaborations, games and whatever else I can think of.
er...ja...so i'm afraid that's about it...I've just had my head down basically.
Hope all's well in your world.
