This is a weight that needed to be lifted. I was just spinning the tires.
I wanted to step back from guitar for a bit. It would constantly be the first instrument in. Definitely a fear that it was getting stale. So the keys and electronics got brought out. For the last year it's been about experimenting around in a different zone. There was an album in mind that I wanted to make. But, after months of grinding away, the realization hit that this wasn't it.
I'd moved on from the subject I was writing about, the energy had gone elsewhere. To keep it as the focus was treading water, stuck on something not worth revisiting. So these finished tracks had to be cut loose, the ideas that didn't make it stored away on an external hard drive. Now, I'm off to hunker down in a shack somewhere, pick up a guitar again, bust out the drum kit, try to really track out what's been on my mind. And I'm really looking forward to the opportunity. Until that gets wrapped up though, these songs were baggage needing to be let go.
Thank you all again for the support you have given. It means the world to me, and I hope you enjoy this release. I'll be back soon with more.
