So, friends, the time is finally upon us! I think most people know that I’ve been working on a new record for release in 2013; well, the time has come to release some details to the world. Here goes nothing.
My new record is called ‘Tape Deck Heart’ and it’ll be released on April 22nd 2013. I recorded the album with The Sleeping Souls and producer extraordinaire Rich Costey, and I’m pleased as punch with it. You can check out all the formats, artwork and track listings below. The Deluxe Edition includes an extra six songs.
Some of you will know some of the songs from us playing them live, but there’s a whole bunch of new stuff on there as well. I hope you like it!
