*MYSPACE BLOG* September update

Hey all,

Once again it's been a while since I filled you in on the progress of the new album, you think I should've learned by now, huh...!?

So, what's happened since last time? Well, I wrapped up the bass recording in June, and planned to get all the rest recorded during July/August. However, I ended up going away for a week here & there, finding myself busy doing other stuff that I hadn't foreseen etc. So it's basically been standing still for a while. The good news, though, is that I've spent the last week or so picking up where I left off in June!

So, now I'm working on getting all the guitars & percussion recorded, and actually, we've already gotten started on some of it! Jonas Isaksson (who also was featured as a soloist on my previous outing) has done some really nice Jeff Beck-ish work on one of the tunes, and I'll be hooking up with Erik Linder & Steinar Aadnekvam in the near future to get their parts recorded as well! Also, trying to keep it time-efficient, I've sent Andreas Ekstedt the tracks he'll be playing on, so that he can get started on those in his own studio asap. Hopefully this means we'll have the guitars & percussion finished around the same time..

In addition to the above, Peter Almgren has been hard at work with the artwork & he's got some very promising ideas, for sure. There's still a bit of tweaking to be done as far as the design/layout is concerned, but we're definitely getting there! I'll give you a sneak peek of it here once we've decided on the details.

I've been getting some questions about the track listing for this CD & who will be featured on what song etc. The only answer I can give you at the moment is that you'll have to wait for it a bit longer, as I haven't really decided on all that yet. Somewhat disappointing, I know..  but hey, you know what they say, patience is a virtue...!

In closing, just a short note letting you know that Luna Nueva is available on CD BabyAbstract Logix at the reduced price of $9.99 throughout September. Copies are already going fast, so, if you still don't own one (or maybe have a friend that'd like a copy), now's as good a time as any to get it! Spread the word, people..

Won't make any promises, but I hope to have a new update ready for you within the next month!

Take care everybody,
