Whilst 'My Private Cosmos' and 'Mixed Up Kid' are now released and hopefully enhancing your musical environment, there is still much to look forward to in 2022.
Next year will see me trying to deal with the backlog of unreleased albums going back to 2016. Albums such as 'Phantom Fuzzbox,' ' 'Studio Cadet,' 'Electra,' ''Memory Loft,' 'Powertron,' 'Magnetic Travels',' Stupid Serious,' 'Amplified Dreams And Wild Surprises,' and ''Cathode Paintbox.' All of which have been waiting in the wings for far too long.
But there is always the temptation to release my latest projects first, a temptation I really must resist as there are so many 'logjam' albums worthy of being at the front of the queue.
I haven't slowed down or taken a break though, and have another brand new album in the works titled, (at the moment,) 'Man Of Dreams.' In many ways it's a whisper away from 'Mixed Up Kid' in style but also slightly different. It's as if the 'kid' grew up. I just need a couple more tracks to complete the album and then I'll be itching to release it.
So, whatever the scenario, there will be a wealth of new and varied music to keep you entertained throughout the coming year. Hopefully containing lots of delightful and exciting surprises! 😉😊
One of the guitars I've been using of late on 'My Private Cosmos' and the album currently in the works' is my Isana 'Black Pearl'' archtop. This is a limited edition recreation of the guitar that Elvis Presley used in his army years. It's a guitar with lots of character. Here's a picture of Elvis with his original Black Pearl.
How about Dreamsville ? You've never used that as a title.
Well, thirteen tracks completed for 'Man Of Dreams' with a possible fourteenth track currently in the works. There will also be two 'bonus' tracks of alternative mixes of two of the titles. Another jam-packed audio package!
I'm toying with the possibility of changing the album title though. 'Man Of Dreams' is very similar to my '80s album, 'Map Od Dreams,' (only one letter difference!) I could title the album 'All The Fun Of The Fair', or even 'Signalling As We Go,' but I need to have a think about that and may even stick with 'Man Of Dreams'. Plenty of time to decide which way to jump as the album won't be scheduled for release until after I've released one of the backlog albums from my archives.
But, meanwhile, here's a list of tracks for inclusion on 'Man Of Dreams', but please note this is not a running order. That will be decided later.
