"I’m just finishing work on a 6-song full length album featuring artists Petra Haden, Jason Lindner, Kevin Corrigan, Steve Shelley, Donny McCaslin, Ben Boye, and other great talents. My guess is a July release on that one. Moniker/album title/song titles to be announced in February. The album was recorded throughout 2018 at Portland’s Ice Cream Party, Amsterdam’s IJland Studios, and San Francisco’s Hyde Street Studios."
Have a good feeling about this. The Petra Haden must be the duet he was about to write that he mentions on Robin Williams Tunnel.
"This Is My Dinner was released on November 1. I never knew that these songs written so quickly on airplanes, music written during soundchecks, plus the entire album being recorded in 4 days, would receive so much attention. This, to me, is testament that making impactful and meaningful albums doesn’t mean slaving away at songs for a year and being in a studio for another year under the scrutiny of music industry hangers-on."
This is literally the opposite of the correct take-away from the largely negative reviews. Should read: "This, to me, is testament that making impactful and meaningful albums means slaving away at songs for a year and being in a studio for another year at least. As I once acknowledged in the song Track Number 8, making great art is hard work. There are no short cuts."
