Try as I might, I’m just not going to be able to get the new album out by the end of the year. (Although it will be very close.) At this point it looks like I’ll wrap up vocal recording this week and have final mixes by Christmas. But given the holiday rush, the studio that’s mastering the album won’t have it done until the first week of January. Once that’s done, it will only take a matter of days for it to appear on iTunes. So I’m hoping that everything will be pushed back just a couple of weeks.
When you spend so much time on a single project like this, the last thing you want to do is rush a component just to hit a meaningless release date. Still, I apologize for the delay. But it’s coming soon, I promise!
