Better Than The Book's 2nd full-length album Hopes and Dreams is COMPLETE and early access has opened on Patreon, some more updates + see you in 2 weeks!
Hi everyone and I hope you've all been having a splendid week! As always it's been another busy one here at JabunAudio preparing for this latest Better Than The Book album release and wrapping things up before the 11 day downtime over the Easter period. Exciting times it has been though and I'm happy to confirm that as of Saturday, the JabunAudio website has been renewed for another year of services and portfolio archives. Horray! I also had the pleasure this week of sending out JabunRecords' first royalty cheque which was an exciting milestone for me. Onto the main event for this post though, I have some HUGE news for you today so let's get straight into it!
After much hard work and preparation, I am ecstatic to announce that Better Than The Book's 2nd full-length studio album “Hopes and Dreams” is finally complete and ready to share with the world! The lead single is due to be released on May 10th, along with an album art reveal and pre-orders opening on Bandcamp, and after another 2 singles over the next few months, the full album will be released to the public in July! Exciting times! If you can’t wait to hear it all though, early access has now opened to my supporters on Patreon, and with this month’s rewards posted out last weekend, it’s really never been a better time to join the pre-release party than now!
If you're a $5+ tier patron, then you'll be receiving the full 10 track (39 minutes) Hopes and Dreams album, Mp3s, WAVs and artwork a whopping 90+ days before it's released in full to the public in July (such is the promo schedule)! For the $1+ patrons you'll be receiving the full sized cover artwork for the album before the public reveal with the lead single in a month's time, as well as the singles and album as they are released to the public over the next few months.
If you're a $10+ patron, then this month I'm continuing from where we left off last time for an in depth look into how the Hopes and Dreams artwork was made, as well as some alternative artworks which weren't used for the final cover. Don't forget too that as a $10+ patron you'll also get your name mentioned in the special thanks section of the album credits (if you'd like)!
I'm also sharing with my patrons the release schedule for the singles and album (as well as their associated rewards) before it goes out to the public with the lead single on May 10th.
With so much going on, it's never been a better time to join Better Than The Book and my other projects on Patreon and remember that when you sign up, you'll receive all the previous rewards for your tier including the entire rest of the Better Than The Book discography with Patreon exclusive bonus tracks, demos and much more. Sign up for as little as $1 a month, or $5 to pick up the new Hopes and Dreams album now (as well as the entire BTTB back catalogue) before it's released to the public. I hope you enjoy it!

That about wraps things up for this post! After such a busy time since the start of the year and before, I'm looking forward to the extended break next week, but after that I'm sure it'll be back to hard work on the album promotion before the lead single is launched on May 10th! Big things to come when I get back but I hope you have a great time until the next post and as always thanks for supporting JabunAudio, Better Than The Book and my various music projects. Take care and see you in 2 weeks!
