Better Than The Book's new Hopes and Dreams album is out TOMORROW, BTTB makes its Australian radio premier with (The Travelling To See Eva Song) + some more updates!
Hello everyone and hope you're having a great week so far! Super exciting and busy times over here at JabunAudio as Better Than The Book's new Hopes and Dreams album is released TOMORROW, but I had a great few days away seeing family and friends for a little pre-launch break too. I also went to see KISS on Thursday night which was unbelievable and a pilgrimage of sorts for my first band and I (as well as my dad and more friends)! Just phenomenal! With more amazing stuff to share in this post, this whole week's just been amazing, so let's get on with the news and start with the big one, Better Than The Book's Hopes and Dreams album release tomorrow!
The time has finally come and after over 2 months since the first single Meteor Shower was launched, Better Than The Book's sophomore album Hopes and Dreams will be released tomorrow (Friday 19th July) at 6pm BST on Bandcamp! I'm super happy to announce too that worldwide distribution across all major platforms including iTunes, Amazon and Spotify has also been approved and will be up for people to enjoy very soon as well! To celebrate the launch I've put together a short teaser for the album which will go live on YouTube at the launch time so if you're free, come join me for the premier below and I cannot wait to finally show you this album I've been pouring my heart and hard work into over the last year or so!
And if you've still yet to hear them, go check out the 3 pre-release singles over on Bandcamp and even pick up a pre-order if you'd like:
Or head over to Patreon to get the full album now when you join the $5+ tiers! You can also join the $10+ tier for a special thanks in the album credits (last chance today), and remember that you'll get all previous rewards for your tier too including the full BTTB discography including many Patreon exclusive bonus tracks! I'll also be hosting an Ask Me Anything session for the patrons when the album goes live so feel free to join me on Patreon, and I look forward to hearing your questions!
Finally this week, some amazing news as Better Than The Book made its Australian FM Radio debut last Tuesday night with "(The Travelling To See Eva Song)" on The Ska Show with Beefy on Southern FM! Thanks so much Beefy for having it playing alongside the music of my heroes including The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, as well as HUGE names like Madness, The Clash, and The Jam! Amazing stuff! You can check out the show playlist via the link below, and hopefully there'll be a re-stream of the show to share soon:
That about wraps things up for today! Big day tomorrow with the Hopes and Dreams album launch and I'll be sharing tracks from the album in the coming weeks with each blog post too! Next week's looking to be busy continuing with promo work, but I'm sure there'll be more stuff to share as well! Until then, thank you as always for supporting JabunAudio, Better Than The Book and my various projects and I cannot wait to share with you all this new music! Hope to see you at the premier on YouTube and until the next post, take care!
