Craig Says # 11 - The Language of Music


The follow up release to the critically acclaimed 2021 album 'I'm Not Giving The Game Away'... 'Never Ask Me Why' has been brought forward and now has a release date of 1 May 2021with pre-ordering on iTunes or pre-save on Spotify and Apple Music having been available from March 24th 2021...

The main reason for bringing the release date forward is there seems to be a bit of interest now and the original 26 week lead in, in hindsight, was a bit too long... in fact to be honest it was quite a ridiculous period of time to have an album there but not available...

Now, 'The Language of Music' is universal and as only 0.1% of musicians websites are in two or more languages we have decided to no longer have a multi-language option for my website...

The simple logistics around time and cost to run 6 languages far outweighed the benefits and stats show we had more website visits from the countries we were targeting before we went multi-lingual and I guess translation options are already available... It also allows for fast, up to the minute updates to happen which is a definite win win situation all round...

Coming up in the next few months will be a lot of experimenting musically; the two albums released so far this year were OK but I'd like to really push myself and see if I can take things to a higher level... 

Loads of possibilities with guitar sounds and perhaps a new approach combining instrumentals with vocals which may achieve a few epic anthem style tracks... I guess time will tell... although it would be nice to feature some acoustic lead guitar somewhere in the mix...

For new and existing members of the mailing list; you may have to confirm your subscription and even check your junk or spam folders...

Seeing a modest 20% opening rate and testing my own email settings it would appear many potential readers will find their newsletters in one of those folders until you flag as 'not junk / spam'... Happy reading thereafter...

Please feel free to check out some new preview tracks from the new album on SOUND-CLOUD and follow me on Spotify or Apple Music so you can hear the full album from 1 May...

Onwards, upwards and sideways...

Best wishes…
