It's a difficult thing letting go of an album. If you are a musician, you know exactly what I'm talking about. You spend years making an album, you promote it, you release it, most bands tour with it, and at some point, you let it go. You move on; you start making a new one. It's difficult, because you still love it, and you believe that it never reached it's full potential. You know that the moment you start working on new material, you are devoting yourself to something else- something new. Moving on is an exciting thing, except when you're just not quite ready to let go of what you have.
Last night, I started working on new material. I knew instantly that this was a premature move. I still love They Reappear, and I'm not quite ready to move on. Especially since I know that I'm going to release it on iTunes with a live DVD sometime in the near future. As I was working on a new idea tonight, I noticed it carried much of the same sentiment of the songs on They Reappear. It's as if I'm not actually moving on at all, but attempting to continue making the album that I've already released. It's getting late, and I may not feel this way tomorrow, but here's where this is going:
I think I'm going to write a short EP to release along with the DVD/iTunes/Physical CD in the fall. It will be sort of an "Epilogue" to They Reappear. Though I reserve the right to change my mind, it's what I feel at the moment. We will see.
Thanks for reading.
