Good news! All of the tracks for my next album, The Living Room, are finished! I have also decided on an album cover which I have posted below:

The Next Album

Work on the next album, is well underway. I have a name for it already, but the artwork is seeming to take a while because I am currently fresh out of ideas. The new album will be called The Living Room. I was thinking about making some sort of cover that would be like looking down on a coffee table of some sort with a coaster and a water ring, but I don’t know. If I decide to do that, then that would mean I’d have to figure out how to make it. We’ll see.

Parlour on iTunes

Parlour has finally made it to iTunes! You can purchase the entire album for $9.99 or you can purchase songs separately for 99 cents a piece. They are available as DRM-free iTunes Plus songs.

Download Parlour for Free!

As part of a new marketing strategy for Parlour, I’m willing to make a deal. The deal is as follows:

I’m offering my newest album, Parlour, as a free, high quality download. You then have the option to support the artist by making a donation for whatever price you think the album is worth. There is no minimum or maximum to the amount that you can donate. Every bit helps.

A Musical Experiment

I’ve been thinking about trying a new experiment with my music. The last album I released, Parlour, has actually been doing quite well, however, since I have almost no marketing capability (no funding and no time), I have decided to try a method that Trent Reznor recently tried with an album he produced for Saul Williams. To anyone who has been following the music industry, these type of experiments have actually been fairly common place recently.

Basically, I’m going to offer Parlour as a free download with the option of paying for it. I know this seems silly, but what others in the music industry have found is that quite a few people are willing to pay for something that they enjoy even if they can get it for free. The free part will attract those who are not sure about the music and are not willing to commit to purchasing it quite yet.

If the person wants to buy it, I think I’m going to offer the album for 2 prices: $5 or $9.99 depending on how much they are willing to pay for it. This should also tell me how much people value my music in dollars.

I still have some things yet to work out (such as where to host the downloads), but as always I will post here when I know more.
