Be the first to hear my new album

Ok, so the new record's nearly done. It's 99% mixed. One more track, the dubiously titled 'Lady Gasoline' (a daft title and no relation to 'Lady Madonna' - I swear), needs to be recorded but then that's it...and then off to to master it and put it to bed.

Things being the way they are however, it's going to take a while before it gets released. I've got to work out how to actually put it out. Do I go physical? (That's not a sex thing, it means manufacturing cds!). Do I just put it out digitally? Do I encourage punters to buy it on iTunes or just ask them to buy it direct from my site? Do I tell people to listen to it on Spotify? The whole way that artists flog albums these days is a minefield and, while we're at it, an enigma wrapped in a mystery too.

Well that's for me to worry about. However, if you'd like to get a copy of the album before anybody else does, here's your chance. Anybody who posts threads on my messageboard - http://www.singletonmusic.com/messageboard/ - between now and 31 July will be automatically entered into a competition to get an advance copy. The more interesting your posts, the greater a chance you've got of winning.

Incidentally the judge's decision on who is the most interesting poster is final and I'm the judge. Get posting!

  1. Great idea to encourage readers to start new threads. And personally I'd really like to buy the album on iTunes.
