Release Info, "Every Little Thing"
I hope you all are having a great start to 2012! As you all know, I've been practicing being quiet for the past 7 weeks or so, and still working on recuperating my voice. In the meantime, I've also been working with my engineer on finishing the final mix of "Every Little Thing," and I'm happy to say that despite the delay due to my voice surgery, everything now is finally mixed and ready to be sent to the duplicators. I approved the final mix of "Can't You See He's Gone" earlier this week and have just finished downloading all 10 tracks from the studio's server.
I'm currently wrapping up all the artwork for the final physical and digital releases of the CD, and there should be no further impediment to a physical release date of March 6th, 2012! The CD will be released digitally on all the usual outlets (iTunes, Amazon, etc) and the physical CD will be released via CD Baby. I'm going to have to get with CD Baby to figure out how the "advance" releases of the CD can be made available, as I am not sure how to make downloads available ahead of a release date from iTunes, etc...In fact, I'm sure that's not possible, so I am hoping I can send out advance download instructions to get the release from CD Baby on Sunday, March 4th. I do not want to simply upload raw files to a dropbox and allow people to download them - A) I would like to avoid having an open source to freely download the CD in advance, and (B) the final mastered release will also include the digital booklet, etc, with lyrics, credits, and the thanks to everyone involved. So I just need to figure out how to make sure you all get all that downloaded - Not just raw tracks of the songs. If that makes sense.
Lastly, the physical copies of the CDs and those eligible for t shirts and the lyric journals will go out the week of 2/27, so I anticipate everyone will have their copy of the CD in hand before the physical release date of 3/6.
Other than the CD/Journal/t shirts, there are 2 other pledge rewards I'm aware of that need to be fulfilled - The first was the release of the original song. Obviously I am still recuperating from my surgery and unable to record any new material. I will have a new song for those who chose that as a pledge as soon as possible, hopefully by the end of April. The other rewards are the meet and greet rewards, which are redeemable at any point this year. Please continue to check my Frontiers schedule and you will have first choice of any dates available in your area.
I'm thrilled that you all have made this music possible despite all of the setbacks I've been through over the past several months. This project and your support has made a world of difference in my recuperation and my mental well being - It's been a much longer process than I would have ever expected; you all have been gracious and patient and encouraging and for that I thank you.
