I have began writing and demoing songs for the followup album to HyperGiant.
You’ve heard the saying; “the difficult second album”? Well it very much started out like that.
I was having enormous difficulty getting anything out. It all sounded the same and I felt I’d already explored it.
I decided I had no more songs on guitar left in me for the moment so I picked up my keyboard and all of a sudden…songs.
They have been coming thick and fast since and I am excited for the first time in quite a while.
Whether they are of any merit or not remains to be seen.
If HyperGiant had a concept or theme it was a coming of age affair.
This new albums concept is pretty clear in my head. I’m ending things with HyperGiant. She and I are donzo.
The new album will sound like a breakup record, and it is one. It is me breaking up with the five year part of my life that was the 1st album.
Don’t get me wrong, I am very proud of it. I’m proud f the work and how it was received.
I am also very much done with it too.
