Do you want to make an album? Sorry, I said that wrong…do you want to make me make an album? Great, we are metaphorically and literally on the same page.
My sixth studio album, The Lemon Squeeze, will be released on May 13, 2014 and I have started this pledge campaign to act as the pad from which to launch the record out into the world. You, dear listener, are here because you are part of an inner circle of trust, built on years, months or possibly only minutes worth of interest in my music. The point is you’re here, I’m here, we’re together…so let’s get started.
A few months ago I sat down with new friends and producers Gus van Go and Werner F (The Stills, Priestess, Hollerado) to talk about making an album. Gus and I were bonding over the classic Randy Newman album “Sail Away”, when I admitted that I’ve always wanted to write and record an album on the piano, which is not my primary instrument. He challenged me to take some time away from my schedule of touring, animating and navel gazing, learn to play the damn piano and write some songs on it. I still don’t really know how to play the piano that well (I’m practicing, promise), but somehow I managed to write some piano songs and I’m not afraid to say that I think they are the best songs I’ve ever written…on the piano. It felt like writing for the first time and I fell in love with songwriting all over again. If you like catchy, upbeat music with off-centre lyrics delivered with a wink and nudge you will want to hear these songs.
The songs are fun, funny, sad, strange, direct, obtuse, intimate and grandiose. I poke at life and mortality with a stick in the swamp of human emotion. I imagine a wedding that is also a funeral. One song is an ode to my mother, whom I’m told actually carried me everywhere she went for 9 months without dropping me. In another song I frivolously use the worst of all the swear words to celebrate existence. I bet you didn’t even think I thought that word! Motherfucking right I do.
I am asking you for your support. I am asking you to buy in right here and now. If this project moves you then please consider any and all of the incentives in the sidebar to the right of this page. I’ve made a list of things that I think I would like to see on here if I were you. Downloads, signed CDs and Vinyl, T-Shirts, Mixtapes, Guitar Lessons, House Concerts and for one adventurous pledger I will write and record a custom made song! If you’re still luke warm on the idea, let me know what you’d like to see as an incentive. I’m not gonna come and do your laundry for you, but I might show you how to rip the sleeves off your denim jacket like a badass! Or I could show you how to sew them back on because the era in which you originally bought that jacket is back en vogue, you’re no longer the wild child you once thought you were and yes, I have a sewing machine. In any event, pledge now and above and beyond your chosen incentives you will get to hear new music before anybody else, you will get to see exclusive photos and videos of me and my friends making video art projects and you will get my deep gratitude and appreciation for your participation. Thanks for listening.
