We’re all set to start recording tomorrow with bass and drums. Peter and I have been sitting around for three days going over every song and making sure we have beginnings, endings, bridges, charts, everything we need to be prepared for this weekend. But then we just couldn’t stand the anticipation any longer so we’re going ahead and recording an a capella track tonight.
.
When I put together Awake & Dreaming, I knew I wanted the last track to be an a capella song. And I knew when I did that, that I would want every album after that to end with an a capella track as well. I had already written one months ago, so now I’m about to head into the home studio here at the Malicks and do my best to sing one part at a time until it adds up to something good. Hopefully like what’s in my head.

Peter asked me about my process for this. I told him keeping all the different vocal parts organized in my head is like keeping a rowdy group of first graders organized. Mostly I hope that if he hits “record” enough times, I’ll come up with something. That’s how it went last time, with “weightless”, so hopefully that system works again.

I’ll let you know how it goes- gotta run, it’s time for some recording adventures!
