Hayley G Hoover, When you stop slaving away at something like an album (my best guess is that I’m working on this for about six months) ended all that feels incredibly strange. On the one hand, it is probably the longest time I’ve ever spent on an individual project, and it is a relief and an absolute joy to do together. But on the other hand, I feel like I could probably have worked on this album forever. I worry about little faults that I might have missed, if I made the right artistic choices, and most importantly, what you think. After all, I did not make this album to try to storm my way into the charts and become a regular player, I did it because you asked me. So you think really is the thing that matters most.
However, obviously I could not slave to always try to make it as perfect as possible, or even the damn thing would never be released. This is done now, the songs and the artwork were sent to my friend Alan Records DFTBA be printed, packaged, and fell on the servers of all digital download services. Essentially, this album is no longer mine – whatever happens, is now completely out of my control and I’m fine with that. It is still yet to be released; it is only available for pre-order yet, so while you wait for December 1st (release date!) To roll, I thought I’d chat a little bit of pocket album.
That is something that is fresher in my mind right now, as I did just finish the last few days. Basically, I wanted to design the entire CD as if I had filled a “My first album!” Kit, a pack you could buy in a store and fill yourself. Since this is my first album and that in many ways I still do not really feel like a “good” musician, I wanted to do something that captured that feeling naive. I designed the kit myself, printed it, filled, and then scanned the whole back into my computer. I also did the same thing with the 8-page booklet that comes with the physical CD, in which instead of just writing the lyrics; I talked a little about all the individual tracks on the album. I’ll let this brochure as a surprise to those who receive the CD
I spent some time trying to figure out what I’m going to put on the front of the “add album artwork here” section. First I am going to flip through old baby pictures and use one of those for try again to capture this feeling naive, but the more I thought, more than anything seemed a little too obvious. I even toyed with the idea of a young me / now me picture style (inspired by Ze Frank), but that does not really work either. Then I finally realized that if I had just bought a kit-style debut album, “I’d probably just take a photo on my phone from myself by myself. The image I chose was my second attempt. My some miraculous intervention by the gods of the picture-framing, the picture is just right, with an interesting thought to take my picture background to make it clear that I did myself and an expression that sums up my nervousness about the release of the album. I’m really happy with it.
The album was released on December 1st and is available on its own and some of the beams: The World Is Mine together, because I “paired” my album with my friend Alex Day, and the T-shirt Cloning Charlie together as well as many requests to make an album, I also made a few messages from people asking me to make a T-shirt Charlie cloning. I hope that your needs were met! Also, I should mention that if you pre-order, you’ll definitely get everything in time for Christmas, which will DFTBA deliver anywhere in the world, and that the two beams will disappear once the CD is released. If you decide to buy all this stuff, so I really hope you enjoy it, and I look forward to hearing what you all think on 1 December
