The wheels are in motion!

Hello everyone :)

How are we all?

I hope you are good. :)

So lately...I have been thinking a lot about the album...how I should approach it, what should the instrumentation be like? Should I try to use all acoustic instruments this time? What should I do differently based on the last one?

I've been thinking about this a lot...and I now think that I have been worrying too much about the end product, and how I want it to be better than the last one. Not because there was anything wrong with the last one, but it's always good to improve!...So in worrying about it I had kind of forgotten the fun involved in the process. I just need to find a way of doing it that feels right, and is enjoyable.

And I think I've found a way...and I'm quite excited about it. Nothing has been finalised yet, but I shall let you know when it has. The songs I'm hoping to get on there are as follows:

(In no particular order.) - that's a favourite. :P Such a comedian...
  1. Crazy Rolling Train
  2. Forever Bound To Fairytales
  3. Queen Of Hearts
  4. Riddles & Rhymes
  5. Sublime
  6. Gone For Good
  7. The Tallest Tree
  8. The Lady & The Past
  9. Warmer In May
  10. Go Figure
  11. Smooth Talking
  12. Hearts & Roses
  13. A New Heart
A few that you may not recognise there.

I'm rather excited actually. I have quite a clear idea of what I'd like it to sound like, and I think the person who I may be working with will be able to bring some very cool acousticy sounds to the tracks.

Anyhow - I'd better go and do some more planning! :)

- Ooh - and I'm meeting with a photographer again tomorrow - just to finalise what I'd like my new set of photos to be like. :)

Speak soon!

Lots of love xxxxx

P.S - Recently I got very excited about the fact k.d. lang said nice things about my Adele cover. :D She's most definitely my favourite singer and I think her musical interpretations are spot on, so it's not mega surprising that her comment puts a big grin on my face!
"I think it's great. I love your narrative read on the lyrics!!! Good job."
WOOOO! :D Haha. And if you're not familiar with her/her music, here's the music video of her most famous song: Constant Craving...


And possibly the second most famous from the same album "Ingenue."
