The cover art for my next album - Words, Music and Pain - is done. Erik Jensen did a fabulous job. As I type this, I’m unsure about whether I’l share it on this post or just wait until the album is released. I’m leaning towards the latter.
My soon to be ex wife did nearly all my other album covers, so it’s interesting seeing someone else’s design. I’ve kept my logo, which Rachel did. It’s too damn good to change.
Speaking of the new songs, I visited my mother last Sat, which means I had time to listen to the most recent mixes during the drive. Most of the songs are good to go. There were two which I thought needed some remixing, but after some thought, I decided to redo the vocals. Didn’t take that long, maybe 3 hours (trust me, that’s not long), but it does mean I’ll need to remix those two songs again. I’ll do it later this week, or this weekend at the latest, and then I’ll release the album.
Prepare yourself! :)
I’m also being forced to redesign my website, kind of. Hostbaby is moving, or was bought by, some company called Bandzoogle. I’m not exactly thrilled. I’ve been with Hostbaby for…uh…well, shit. Longer than I can remember. At least 17 years, I’d say, and having to deal with a new company I don’t know isn’t exactly welcome. It’s not a matter of “change is bad.” It’s more like “I didn’t choose you fuckers.” But, we’ll see how it goes. There are roughly 2 billion web hosting companies. If this doesn’t work, I’ll find a new one.
The rep I’ve dealt with (there was a small problem with my login) put together a theme that looks very much like my current one. I don’t want to change it; I just went through a redesign…what? Maybe two years ago? I suppose you could say I’m due, but I like the way it looks now, and want to keep it. If the site looks radically different between now and 1/31/20, you know why.
Guess that’s about it for now. Y’all be good.
