I’m trying to decide whether I should go with jewel case or digipak for my new album. I personally prefer digipaks, because they seem nicer and more personal. But I also see why many prefer the sturdier and standardized jewel case!

So, which do YOU prefer? See poll on the right!

Jewel case:

Just a short update: Louis Abramson from JOLLY (check out his facebook page for regular updates) has now finished recording the drums for my new album, so it’s almost done now! What’s left is for him to mix the tracks, and for me to finalize the lyrics for the final track and record them.

I think it’s turning out really well, and I hope you all will like it too!

A little animation and song made for a Valentine’s Day thing in the FreddeGredde chatroom.

We had a little thing in the chatroom, where we all got a randomly chosen valentine to do something nice for today! I got MariLu and made this video. :) I have barely finished any animations in my whole life, but I had a blast working with this. So fun to animate, seriously! (And it only took two days. Plus an entire night not sleeping. It could be smoother and more detailed, but yeah. It wasn’t a serious thing.)

Now I’m thinking of starting some bigger animation project, as soon as my album is finished and released. (Currently waiting for the drummer to record his parts.)

Wow, a year has passed already, but it feels like a month or two. Either way, I have to tell you that my projects (new album and a classical medley) will be delayed a few months, because life is life and stuff happens.

I figured I could share a bit of information though, and let you know that I’m totally alive. (I’ve seen some stupid rumors online..)

So, here’s a first draft for the album cover:
Brighter Skies cover draft
The track listing will be as follows:
1. Welcome the Bright Skies (5:45)
2. The Autotelic Self (11:04)
3. Your Life (2:59)
4. This Fragile Existence (5:49)
5. The Tower (8:20)
6. Shining (4:01)
7. Ocean Mind (18:24)

Basically, it’s a progressive rock album, not gonna lie! Plenty of crazy ideas, odd time signatures, heavy contrasts, everything I personally like with music. :)
But it’s not gonna be for everyone. That’s why I’ll also release The Classical Medley around the same time, which will be more in line with what most expect from me! And it’s my most ambitious medley yet, and hopefully the best.
I’d say it’s likely they’ll both be released around.. early March. (Edit: Make that May… New edit: Make that June! Final edit: Wooo, July 14th it is!)

So yeah, please look forward to that, and have some happy holidays!

Happy holidays and such!

I’ve decided not to post any new updates or videos until my next album is finished. So, don’t expect to see anything new from me until late 2013 or so.

Until then, take care!

(I will still be hanging around in the chatroom though, if you want to talk.)
