The American tour is under way, we survived Vegas, met up with Social D, had fun with old friends in Santa Barbara, and now we’re in Albuquerque, and I’m not sick. Life is good. Life was also brightened up the other morning by waking to discover that I’ve been nominated for two NME Awards this year. Much like last year, I’m in the “best solo artist” and “best blog” categories. You can vote for them right here, if you’re feeling kind. This is the second year in a row that this blog has been feted with the nomination, which always makes me feel slightly self-conscious as I write it; this is basically me waffling away to little consequence in my own inept way. But it’s nice to be recognized, even a little. I feel like I should say something profound now. Uh… No ifs or buts in free speech! Or something like that.
In more normal news, I’m happy to announce that I’ll be playing the Hultsfred Festival in Sweden in June. There are a bunch more festival dates coming for the summer, and I still need to do a big update blog on Wembley (coming soon I promise). And I guess I should think of more witty and interesting things to write on here in my downtime. Ha!
