Fraulein III is being planned now but will most likely not be in production until late 2016. Check back for updates.
The day is finally here that Fräulein II gets unleashed on the world. On Sept 2, you can get your copy at iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, Spotify, and everywhere else good music is sold. Shooting the music video for the second single, “The Sun and The Sea”, this weekend.
Fräulein II will be released September 2, 2014 Worldwide on MegaPlatinum Records / Cockroach Media
The album is done! Here’s the cover. August 2014 is the release time, but you can get it sooner than that here on the website.
Fräulein I was a breeze and a breath of fresh air for me. It was a record I needed to make, and it was expedient and direct in it’s approach. Really simple, in hindsight. It was all there, just had to do the work to commit it to tape. When I announced Fräulein II/III, I had hoped for a similar effort and results. I had all of these ideas I wanted to get out of my system and, at the same time, I thought the “double album” concept was really cool.
But life is what happens when you’re busy making plans. It was a long, tough, cold winter. Life changes, losing a beloved family pet, and changes in my mindset and sense of direction for Fräulein all happened while the record was being made. Some of the songs just weren’t finishing themselves. The ideas didn’t flow as easily. I had moments of struggling with conveying what I had to say. So, I’ve decided to scrap the double album approach, take all of the songs that are ready, and make one single album instead.
With that, Fräulein II is being finished as I write this. The tracking and mixing are slated to be finished by May 1st, and rehearsals for live concerts will follow immediately thereafter with an album release sometime mid-June.
