Coming soon…

Gorgeous sunrise this morning, so I snapped this one.  Vacation at the beach has been nice, despite having a head cold.

My next album is coming soon. My 20th album. I’ve been tweaking and re-touching it for quite a while now, but it’s getting very close. The art is currently under development and I’m continuing some collaborations to really bring the music to life.

This is a huge departure album. It’s completely unlike anything I’ve ever done, and that departure (or liberation, as it feels like) has been a driving inspirational force for me. The freedom to make whatever type of art it is that you want to make is truly freeing. At the end of the day, you make the stuff you make for you, and if you’re lucky enough as an artist to have friends along for the ride, well that’s the ultimate experience in creating something. This album does come at the risk of alienating my current listeners. If you don’t like the new album, I apologize for it. I hope you do, though, because I’ve never been more excited or more proud of the production.

I’m also mastering it in surround sound. That has been an interesting learning experience as well. I think it elevates the production quality tenfold.

So the gloves are off, in other words. This is it. This, for me, is the big one. It all comes down to this.

“Morning” sheet music

A listener asked if I wouldn’t mind notating the piano part from Morning so that he could play it from home. I thought this was a delightful idea, so I thought I’d share that sheet music with anyone interested here.
