It's Friday!

Today/Tonight...Songs on the list tonight:

-With A Capital 'T'

Postponed recording last night because I was starting to feel a little under the weather. Got some rest and now I'm back baby.

Today we've been recording a song that is over 6 minutes long. I wish I could cut it a lot shorter, but hey, don't limit the creativity, right?

This song was written about a year ago and it's pretty important to me. It's also kind of a precursor to the next album I'll be putting out later called Brighter Colours. The problem I have with longer songs is that it's hard to keep people's attention for longer than about 5 and a half minutes. After the song goes past the 5:30 mark, I never seem to hear much about them. For example, one of my favourite songs I've ever recorded is off the Alex Andrew EP and it's called "Against, Against". Granted, it's not the best quality and back then I wasn't as picky with my takes as I am now, but still, the complexity of the song is something I'll always be proud of.

However, the song is 7:27 long and no one has ever said anything to me about liking it. I'm not upset about this, it's just the way it goes sometimes. People will always like "Amy" and "A February Sunday" the most, and I'm grateful for that!

Everything is coming along nicely. Wanna know what I'm looking forward to the most? Having every single track mixed and having only the tracklisting to do next! Only a few weeks away.

Tomorrow night is another night off, for I have a concert and bars to go to. Luckily I planned my schedule for a few last minute nights off like this. See you all Sunday!

Cheers, you guys are the best,
Alex
