At last. After a number of months and years of planning and bluster, I have finally recorded the first audio tracks for We Cirri in almost nine years.

Over the last fortnight, our study has been set up to facilitate recording and the entire classical guitar arrangement for Bitter Philosophies has been committed to hard drive. I'm planning to record the remaining classical guitar for the first part of the new album (a short instrumental track Us and the Stars) before Christmas. As such, the next album project is well-under way and a release date of late 2019 is looking very realistic indeed.

To finish off, here are some facts about We Cirri showing how old and expansive this project really is:

  1. The material was written between 1991 and 1999.
  2. The tracks were all arranged and scored.
  3. It is 18 tracks long and runs for about 1 hour and 40 minutes.
  4. The keyboard and drum programming were undertaken in 2008.
  5. The bass guitar was recorded in 2009.
  6. To realise recording and release, it's been divided into two albums of nine tracks each.
  7. Planned release dates are December 2019 and Autumn 2020.

I hope to release Us and the Stars on this website by the end of year. In the meantime, I'll look to post before Xmas.
