LorD and Master: Eclipse - some details
So, over the past few weeks, I've been talking a little about the new album. And now I shall talk a lot about the new album, if I may.
It's called Eclipse and I've been working on it for a couple of months, starting it, in fact, before I moved to Coventry. So, it's taken a while and anyone that knows me knows that I work pretty fast. It's now down to remixers to get their mixes in for the release schedule. Anyone who's reading this, who wants to get involved with remixing the new singles, please do get in touch through the normal methods!
So, Eclipse, follows the fourteenth album, Definitely, which had a very defined sound with its mangled vocal samples and what-have-you. This album is a lot faster, a lot dancier and uses a lot of synths, as ever, but this time it's all about stuff that goes on in darkness, at night, or, indeed, in the enforced night of an eclipse.
So, the release date of the album is 9 July 2018, with two singles preceding it.
The first single to be taken from the album is called Strange chemistry, and will be followed by Song with no name, in the weeks leading up to the release of Eclipse.
Each single comes with various remixes and two bonus tracks (which I still insist on calling B-sides) along with rather lovely artwork by yours truly with some direction from long-time design collaborator, Peter Nugent.
Following this pattern, after the album is released, a new version of Adventure of a lifetime will be released, with different production and its own host of remixes and B-sides.
As ever, each single is accompanied by a lyric video for those who like that kind of thing.
