My Moscow days are probably coming to an end quite soon. It‘s been nearly 2 years. An unexpected stay. Not much music in that time, but that‘s ok. I will probably release a collection of songs within the next two years. There‘s no rush. The world doesn‘t really need it, and I feel I can take my time.
One of the songs on it will probably be some version of this song, „Days“. I hashed together this video using the 1922 film Nosferatu. The song did start out as something about a vampire, although as usual with my songs it morphed into something else during writing. But the Noferatu cuts still fit it ok.
I’m slowly getting tracks down for the next release. I start out with ideas, but these records always wind up having ideas of their own. Here’s the first relatively complete premix. A dusky tale of a fireman with a water obsession, or is that a watergirl with a fireman obsession?
Alright,… I did rather get stuck in a black hole around the latest record and 2013 breezed by. It’s the first year without a release in quite a while. I’m not far off the next one though, and it’s sounding pretty good. I reckon another two to three months and I’m there. I even have a title.
Meanwhile here’s a wee treat off the last one, appropriately named of course. Enjoy!
There will be a fifth Gordon Bell album this year so long as I get my act together. I am *slowly* writing and recording new songs. It doesn’t have a name yet. Here’s a taster of one of the tracks for you. It’s called Stars.
Special thanks to Grant and Gigi for their contributions. And a few others, you know who you are… although some of you don’t but that’s OK too. It’s Scottish Lounge Chanson at it’s finest and I used everything except the Kazoo this time.
