Debuting a new song in front of an audience — I imagine — is a lot like bringing your kid to the park for the first time. You clean her up, put her in her best sundress, and then watch anxiously, hoping she does something awe-inducingly cute for fawning spectators. It’s not an iPod or a new pair of shoes; she’s uniquely your creation, and even the slightest notion of indifference or disapproval would be a crushing blow.
Well, I don’t have a child; but I do have a song, and I’m proud to say she’s clapped and giggled in all the right ways during each trip to the park. So much so, we’re interested in giving her some brothers and sisters to play with in the very near future, and that’s exciting news for our little family.
It’s been nearly an entire year since we finished tracking We Will Explain Everything, and quite a bit longer since each song was initially conceived (most of the first demos date back to late 2008, with two songs even going back to 2006). Since then, Jeff has joined our band, and after working with him for more than a year, we’re excited to have him involved in this writing and arranging process we’re about to undertake.
What does this all mean? We’re aiming towards having new music out by the end of this year, at the very minimum. Yeah, we’re only in the conception stage, and the gestation period of music can be irregular, but results are imminent!
We’ll keep you posted 🙂
