ALBUM NAME REVEALED!
I know you've been on the edge of your seats so drum roll please...
The new Granfalloon album will be called... 'Calendar'!
The roots of this album can be traced back to 2014, when I was recording a debut album with my previous band. It was the 13th time I had recorded that album. Getting it right was proving difficult…
A different approach was needed to keep things fresh. I would write new songs, one every week, without perfectionism weighing down the process. By the end of 2014 I had amassed 52 new songs, each one reflecting the week I'd experienced, all framed as fevered journal entries.
After founding Granfalloon in 2016 and releasing two albums, I went into the studio in February of 2020 to begin the task of committing definitive versions of the songs from my “52 Project”.
Obviously the pandemic put the project on hold and ironically, now everyone had a double album of songs squirrelled away. But I never wrote because I had too much time on my hands. Writing has always been a matter of necessity for me.
I returned to the studio again in 2021 with his core band from the Positive Songs Project to whittle down the original 52 to 12 songs… These 12 songs comprise this new album, Calendar. The first volume is out this Autumn.
