Hello fellow Newgrounders!
It's been a super busy couple of months, but I'm super excited to announce that after many weeks of plucking strings, pressing keys, programming synths, and belting at microphones, along with illness, injured fingers and lots of unexpected happenings, recording has finally finished for the upcoming Better Than The Book ska-punk/pop-punk album! It's been an amazing journey so far, and there's still much left to do as I move onto the next stage of the production process: editing, mixing and mastering! Thanks for all the support so far. I can't wait to show you how far things have come since "Two Years On"!
With all that being the case, I thought it was finally time to reveal the title and tracklist for the project too:
Better Than The Book - Hopes and Dreams
01 The Hardest Part
02 Artificial Ignorance
03 And I Fear
04 Meteor Shower
06 Get A Haircut
07 (The Travelling To See Eva Song)
09 You've Got A Lot To Say
10 Hopes and Dreams
(Approx length: 39 minutes)
I really can't wait to be able to share this with you all and I hope you're as excited as I am to hear it. No ETA on the release just yet as there is much work left to do, but I'll be sharing more updates with you as and when I can. If you can't wait, feel free to refresh your ears with the rest of the BTTB discography here on NG. I hope you enjoy it!
That about wraps things up for this post. In other news, I'm still working on setting up a Patreon page, though I've been prioritising the album's production recently (as well as other work), so that's been on the back-burner. Hope to have some more updates on that soon. Anyways, thanks as always for supporting what I do and I look forward to sharing new and exciting things with you all soon!
Keep those horns blaring,
Nick Standing (Jabun)
