For those who don’t know, I released a song called “Good Company” early last week. I’m working on a new project right now (an EP, which is just a term for a “shorter than ten songs” album), and for a variety of reasons, I’ve decided to release a few songs ahead of the release of the whole project. It allows me to focus — mainly in terms of marketing and promotion — on one song at a time and try to gain new fans who maybe wouldn’t be willing to take a risk and spend $7-8 on me, but who might be willing to spend a dollar. It might sound silly, but in the current climate of the struggling music business, you wouldn’t believe how hard it is to get people to buy any music at all, much less an entire album. Anyway, I’m very, very excited about this song. It’s something I wrote for/about some friends of mine who were dealing with leukemia, and my hope is that the song will bring healing and comfort to people who are hurting, grieving, lonely, depressed, etc. As many of you know, I want to write music that speaks honestly of the Kingdom of Jesus, even when the truths are difficult or complicated. And I think this song does that as well as any I’ve written in a while. Anyway, if you’d like to buy the song, here are a couple of links for purchase.
And here is a lyric video for the song, if you just want to get a sample.
Finally, the new EP will be out soon. I’m still deciding on an exact release date (I originally said November 11, but now I’m wondering if that’s too close to Christmas), but I’ll have more info soon. And in the meantime, I’ll be releasing a few “singles” from the project. I hope you check them out. Stay tuned!
