Hello everyone and hope you're having a great week so far! As always it's been a busy time over here, this time finishing off the upcoming Better Than The Book - Hopes and Dreams album and sorting out the various extra things for its release. It'll only be a short blog post this week with some updates on how things are going, so let's get straight to it!
So first of all, I'm super happy to announce that the Better Than The Book - Hopes and Dreams album is now official finished as a product! Artwork is done, master audio WAVs have been exported and checked to perfection, and the mp3s have been converted and tagged with all the metadata! ISRCs and UPCs have been secured and are in the process of registration at the moment, and the album is in the process of being uploaded to distributors too. I've also been working closely with the PR people and we've selected the 3 singles for the album and sorted a rough release date / schedule too (to be set in stone when the first single is released in May). Photo shoots have been booked and some extra stuff is in the process of being sorted too! All in all super busy but super exciting times! Since the album is finished now I'll be uploading it to Patreon within the week as a reward for the $5+ Early Pigeons and patrons, so if you want to be the first to hear it even before it's officially announced with the lead single, now would be a great time to sign up to Patreon for the $5 of higher tiers, and you can pick up the rest of the BTTB discography and more when you do. I hope to see you there!
As well as those exciting updates on the album, I've also been busy this week with the usual yearly admin for JabunAudio. Tax returns have been completed (and much better results than last year which is nice), and the JabunAudio website domain has been renewed for another year (the website service itself will be renewed this coming Saturday). All in all a very productive week, though I'm looking forward to getting back to making music when all the admin work is done, as well as a break when I go away in a week's time.
And that about wraps things up for this post! I'll be busy over the next 7 days before I go away finishing off as much as possible for the album release (and much more), and next week will be the final blog post until I return at the start of May. Until then I hope you have a great time whatever you're up to and thanks as always for supporting JabunAudio, Better Than The Book and my various projects. See you next week and take care!
