I’ve been meaning to record the follow up to my last solo album (2014’s ‘Hot Pink Flamingos‘) for AGES. I’ve just been so busy recording and producing everyone elses great songs I haven’t got round to it until now.
I’ve wrote about 20 new songs and done basic demos for nearly all of them, but just need to produce the finished tracks.
I think the album is going to be called ‘Lavalamp’ and I have a rough sketch of an album cover already done.
I had a couple of free days, so thought I might as well treat myself to some studiotime. I had the intention of going in and recording the title song ‘Lavalamp’ again (I’ve already done a basic demo), but as I sat there drinking my coffee, I started playing the two note riff that starts this new song.
Within 20 minutes the song was written, so I thought I might as well record it instead of Lavalamp. So here you go!
The new Album, (Lavalamp), I think I’m going to just release track by track. So the album is there now in Bandcamp, with just the track in it. When I record the next track (probably the title song) I’ll add that to the album too. Saves waiting 6 months for me to record all the songs.
Let me know if you like it.
