I’m making a new record and I’d love for you to be part of it.

When you pre-order the album not only do you get it way before anyone else but you’ll have access to the demos, out-takes, studio videos, blogs, random covers, free downloads & whatever else comes to mind as we’re going along. You’ll be with us, all the way, as the record comes alive.

“Nobody Knows Anything” did so much better than I could have hoped for and that was all thanks to the support of you lot.

It got loads of really, really, positive reviews in the UK & Holland (where made a couple of album of the year lists and for a short while was even number one on the 3voor12 chart) and we got some great radio play too in both countries (Gideon Coe, Tom Robinson on BBC6 Music, Frank Skinner on Absolute Radio, Leo Blokhuis in Holland & lots of Dutch stations).

This time around I’ve written a bunch of songs that I’m really excited about and, if we (Bear & Jonathan Czerwik who are producing) can make the album we’ve been talking about, it could be something really special. I think. I hope. Certainly we’ll be putting our hearts and souls into the making of it.

I’m very aware that I’m dead lucky to have had so many musicians, artists, mates and general music lovers who have given up their time, money and energy to help me do what I do. It’s pretty humbling. For my part I really will do everything I can to make this album as good as it can possibly be.

Kind Regards & Thanks

Al
