today i learned it took a team of 11 people to write fergalicious
Ok… I’m pretty sure the guys from Kraftwerk had absolutely nothing to do with this!
Why are they listed as writers?
For a long time, I thought about recording an acoustic version of one of the songs from Immorality to release it as a kind of “teaser” for the EP.
Just like I did with The Flame from Morality.
However, I’ve come to the conclusion that none of the songs from Immorality work very well acoustically.
It’s not that they sound bad acoustically, it’s just that performing them acoustically doesn’t really change the songs because they all feature a “stripped back” production style anyway.
So I’ve decided that I’m going to release a song called A Closed Door as the “teaser track” from Immorality.
This song was originally going to be included on Immorality, but I decided to remove it at the last minute in order to make room for a different song called It’s All Happening Over Here.
I’m really proud of the song, and it was really hard for me to choose not to use it in the final track-listing for the EP.
So I’m really pleased that I now have a good reason to release it!
The song is composed for just voice and piano, so it fits in perfectly with the acoustic theme.
This song should be available on SoundCloud within the next couple of weeks, and Immorality shall follow soon after!
It will feature as a hidden bonus track on Immorality and it will be sent to anybody that chooses to download the EP.
I’ll let you know when it’s online!
Today would have been Katharine Hepburn’s 106th birthday!
Katharine Hepburn is undoubtedly one of my favourite actresses,
Her independence, creativity and devotion to her art is very admirable.
She was revolutionary, not just in cinema, but in history and culture!
She is a truly inspiring person.
“If you always do what interests you, at least one person is pleased” - Katharine Hepburn
I’m so excited about this!

(going to start semi-regularly posting excerpts from grapefruit, which is a beautiful collection of her work. equal parts cheerful, hilarious, heartbreaking, and reflective.)
If you follow me on twitter or facebook, you may have seen that Friday was the final deadline for coursework and last day of teaching on my university course.
My second year doesn’t start until mid-September/October, so I’ve got plenty of time to work on new music and projects!
I already have plans regarding upcoming projects, and I’ll talk a bit about what’s to come in this blog.
This needs to happen!
