Slow Burn is released! So why should you buy a copy?
Well, this is a question worth looking at. In the world of streaming who would be crazy enough to ask people for their money for an album? Well, I have a secret for you.....me.
Basically, the album Slow Burn is an old school album. It has a long, elaborate intro, extended solo sections, soundscapes to set the mood of the songs, etc.... all things that listeners on Spotify, iTunes, Deezer and the rest won't like. I mean, they'll like the music of course, but there is an "instant gratification" culture with today's streaming that has de-valued music in a way. People still listen to a huge variety of music but do we listen in the same way? There is no waiting involved. No value to this body of work. It isn't all about money, it's about allowing gaps in your life. I have made an album that will fit better with this mindset.
That said, I am releasing the album online but the songs that really let you get invested and tell the story will be shortened. No elaborate intros, no soundscapes, no extended solo sections. No "sit back and let this happen" moments for the online listeners. Nope. I have reserved those moments for those who buy the album. The album is available as a digital download complete with all artwork or as a CD (Vinyl is pending as of March 2020 but will come!). This is so that I, the artist, who has invested a LOT of money (I didn't really have) into recording my life's work can ask for you guys for support. In return, I will give you something special. The full and unabridged album!
I hope this makes sense. By all means, have a listen online and let me know if you like it! Then if you want this little extra, the full experience, (the songs in the right order even...) then hit me up and buy and album. It's worth it!
