finishing and releasing a new album into the world
This month brought the completion and release of the 7th album of my musical career. Yellow #1 released our second album this week (our first since "Bottle of Rain" in 1997) called "Thanks for the Nostlagia." It has been 5 years since I have been in a recording studio and released an album, the last being Transpose's second album, "Retribution." Five years is the longest I have ever gone in my career between releasing albums, and being in a studio and recording / mixing / mastering is like riding a bike.
Recording the vocals, picking vocal effects, doing
Everything was so much different in 1997 when the first album was released, and yet here I am, excited about a new album, but in a much different way. I'm more proud of the piece of music that we have written, and less focusing on "being the world's biggest rock star" like I was when the first album came out 2 decades ago. This time I can just sit back and enjoy the ride, instead of losing sleep over how to get the band to the top of the charts. This time around, I'm just happy if people listen to it. I don't need hoards of screaming fans lined up outside Wembley Stadium.
I'll end with this: of the 7 albums that now make up my musical career, this one has been the most relaxed, less stressful, and easy-going of all of them. And I think it shows on the album. I'm not trying to prove myself to anyone anymore
I learned a lot with this new album, and I hope this can continue on with any and all future albums that may still be in my future.
Hope you check out the album and enjoy it as much as I did writing and recording it....
