Jabun's 2nd album "15-4-20" has been released, Patreon rewards are out in celebration (including an exclusive first sneak peek demo from Better Than The Book's next album for the $10+ patrons) + more updates!
Hi everyone and hope you're having a great December so far! It's been a super busy time here at JabunAudio preparing for this week's HUGE news as well as some equally monumental news I hope to be sharing next week and more exciting things for Jabun in the future too! No rest for me over here so let's get straight into things!
So after much wait, a tonne of hard work preparing and more social media posts about it in the last month than anything else, this week I’m super excited to finally release my 2nd album as Jabun – 15-4-20! Check out the album teaser video below:
(Featured music: “15-4-20 B” – Jabun)
The album preview on SoundCloud featuring all 3 tracks:
And most importantly, listen to and pick up Jabun’s 15-4-20 album now on Bandcamp:
15-4-20 is a one take per track live improvised ambient exploration and the first of its kind in my discography. The entire 33+ minute, 3 track album was recorded on the evening of April 15th 2020 with no overdubs or edits, just a single take for each track. I hope you enjoy the gently changing ambient soundscapes; a snapshot of an evening in lockdown during the strange spring of 2020!
In case you’ve not seen them yet, you can also check out the full album credits, special thanks and descriptions on the Jabun – 15-4-20 Bandcamp page! Read more below and I hope you have fun exploring:
All tracks written, performed and produced by Nick Standing [Jabun]
Recorded, mixed and mastered at JabunAudio by Nick Standing [Jabun]

Now that Jabun’s 15-4-20 album is out, I’ll be uploading tracks from the album to YouTube and Newgrounds each Wednesday until mid January 2021, and with such a big release, I’ll also be taking a short break from Patreon rewards to update the Patreon REWARD ARCHIVE posts for the convenience of new patrons. I’ll be back with new rewards for the $5 & $10 patrons on the final Wednesday of January, and the first Wednesday of February for the $1 patrons! Until then I hope you have a great holiday season and enjoy the new music, and thanks as always for supporting Jabun, Better Than The Book and my various projects on Patreon and in any way you can! I look forward to sharing more music with you in 2021!
And speaking of new music, over the last few weeks I've been busy finalising things for the release of Jabun's 3rd album as well, including sorting the master WAVs, Mp3s and FLAC files and getting started on the admin side of work before uploading to distributors! Expect something slightly different, but a logical experimental progression from 15-4-20 coming in Spring 2021! More news on that next year!
And that about wraps things up for this blog post! If all goes to plan, I should be sharing an unrelated but equally exciting piece of huge news next time (man is it busy at the moment), as well as Jabun's 15-4-20 B on YouTube and Newgrounds, at the very least! With all the promo work going on too, it looks like I'll be continuing the JabunAudio blog posts throughout the holiday season this year (I think that's a first), but until the next one, I hope you enjoy this latest batch of Jabun tracks I've poured my heart into and thanks as always for supporting all my projects in all the ways you do! Happy holidays, stay safe and take care!
Nick Standing; Better Than The Book; Jabun!
