Many of you have been asking about it and the time has come to announce our plans for a brand new studio album which will be released in April 2016. I have been touring and recording with many bands and projects over the years, but it has been more than 10 years since I last released a solo album. This is about to change.
I’ve never stopped writing songs so I have accumulated a lot since my last solo album. In June we have started recording in Dublin with some amazing musicians from all over Europe. We’re happy to say that we’ve come a long way these last couple of months and the album is taking shape. I believe we’re creating something worthy of your expectations. The songs reflect on how our personal relationships are relevant to the bigger picture, even on a world level.
Feeling lucky with 13 songs ready to go and asking for you all to join in the effort and be a part of this project. We need to continue recording with these amazing artists and then venture into the stage of mixing, mastering, pressing and marketing of the final product. The next step would be a video, a vinyl edition and a tour with a full band, but first we need to look after the long list of people who have already invested their time and talent in this album.
If you pre-ordering the physical album (with or without extras) you will receive a signed backers-only limited edition, different from the standard version, before the official release date (April 2016).
And that’s not all. I have also been working with fellow Headspace band mate (and Ozzy Osbourne & Black Sabbath keyboard player) Adam Wakeman on an album that will see the light of day in January 2016. Don’t expect this to be a Headspace album (that will come later in 2016). It is an acoustic album; guitar and piano. This collaboration between us as songwriters has added a new dimension to the album, taking the songs to another level. You can choose to receive this album before the official release date (January 2016) as well.
When you add a physical copy of the Wilson & Wakeman album to your pre-order you will also receive a signed backers-only limited edition, different from the standard version.
Please take the time to look at the different pledge options we have for you.
Thank you for your support,
Risks and challenges
I’ve been recording albums for over 20 years, so I’m fully aware of all the risks and challenges that come with bringing an album to life. We've already come so far in the recording process that it will be difficult for this album not to be released.
However, with your help we can make it even better. There's a long list of talented people we like to get involved and with your help, we can.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
