Funny story: our new album ("The Curtain Show" coming in September) started out as a much smaller idea. My phone was full of little melodies, half formed songs and snippets of good ideas (well, I thought they were good:)). At the same time I had been wanting to focus more on collaboration, specifically with singers, and here I was sitting on all this unused and undeveloped material; the two presented as an obvious match.
I also decided to try something a little different: can we create something interesting, meaningful and complete while keeping it concise? I'm talking 90 seconds to 2 minutes. Could we be substantive and brief?
What we got was so good we had to get back into the studio a month later and complete the album. We are incredibly excited to debut the videos we captured during the experience.
