Update from SCAD
It’s been a while! The world has changed drastically over the course of this year, and I hope you are all keeping safe and staying positive despite all of this chaos that has changed the way we live for the foreseeable future.
In regards to my creativity, the progress of the new album has been stalled temporarily because of COVID-19. I’ll be able to make very slow progress soon, but the reality is that the record may not see the light of day until 2021 now.
Through these changing times, we’ve all seen other terrible injustices around the world, affecting all of us decent folk! Inevitably, new music in the form of two distinct compositions have been gifted to me. They stand apart from the album, which has its own, very specific theme.
So, as we all have our own plans for a post COVID-19 world, I’d like to share mine with you, in the order that they will most likely happen…
Return to Prominence: World Tour
A much delayed and long awaited re-introduction to the live arena, featuring three separate set lists and three different types of individual show; Electric performance, Acoustic performance, Piano performance. Featuring songs spanning an entire back catalogue. Hopefully commencing before the end of this year, but if this is not possible, then 2021 for sure!
A: State of Perplex / B: Nocturno – Limited edition 7” single
Two brand new tracks, reflecting the current climate. The next release, only available on 7” vinyl format and to be sold in select independent record stores, directly to mailing list subscribers and at future shows. Once they’re gone, they’re gone! A completely separate entity to the forthcoming studio album.
Evermore: New Album
Already in the midst of being recorded. A very personal theme, but also a universal one… now more than ever.
As soon as it’s possible for the aforementioned to be realised, then they will be. It just may not be this year. But what a year 2021 will be in that case!!
In the meantime, take care, be safe, be responsible and be kind to one another please 🙂
PS: Feel free to join the mailing list, to be eligible to order the 7” single when it is ready for pre-order, and to also receive a free gift now!
