I have just released a new single called Move
. Back in the summer of 2007, I started working on a new album. Due to taking on the live DVD project, I decided to scrap the album and pick it up at a later time. I could not scrap this song though. It was recorded at Nate Wood's home studio on a rainy night in early January, merely a week after I wrote it. There is a magic in recording a song right after it has been written that I fear would be lost if I were to re-record it at a later time.
Of all the songs I have written, this is my favorite so far. It came about so effortlessly, it did not even feel like I was writing it. I was noodling around on my guitar when I came up with the main part. I felt like I was on to something good, so I turned on my recorder, played through it a couple of times, and basically came up with the lyrics on the spot. I played through it three times, and then went to bed. There was one line I had not finished. When I awoke in the morning, it came to me, and Wha-la! - a complete new song was born.
You can go grab it on iTunes
, or wherever else digital music is sold. (I did not actually print up physical copies of this song, so you can only get it online). You can hear a few of the other new songs in their live form when the DVD comes out.
