Claye – An Update

 

Back in August, I announced an album called ‘Carbon Claye’ with an expected release date of March 2013. I’d like to give you a little update…

I’ve spent the last five months since that announcement working on the record. It’s been an incredibly frustrating several months, some of the most frustrating I’ve ever had. I’ve had a ton of trouble and I’ve worked on a ton of stuff for the record. I’ve started over at least one hundred times and I’ve even changed the name (from ‘Carbon Claye’ to ‘Claye’). But I’ve learned a lot…

Today, with a little bit of confidence, I can say that I am nowhere near ready to release this record. Which is probably good in the long run, seeing as I just released Readers & Reporters less than 12 months ago. I think I was excited to get back to work on the next thing, and ended up announcing something prematurely.

I’m relieved to finally say something about it. I’m still working on the project everyday. I just don’t want to release what I have right now. I want to put more thought and more time into it. I have some ideas floating around in my head of when it might be ready. But I won’t say anything until it is ready for sure.
