I LOVE THE SMELL OF FOOTAGE OF DEVIN TOWNSEND RECORDING A NEW ALBUM IN THE MORNING
Why, it was just Wednesday that Devin Townsend promised “Videos and clips of Ghost next week;” but genius knows no schedule, and so, as it turns out, by “Next week,” Mr. Townsend meant “within forty-eight hours.” ‘Cause this morning, he posted the above four-and-a-half minute clip of himself and some of his cohorts working on Ghost. He also posted this message:
So this is record 4 of the dtp, but I’m recording it third, because Deconstruction (3) is a nightmare technically and I wanted to make something lovely before diving into that.
There are a number of guests on the album, but the core is me, Dave Young (Keyboards) Mike St-Jean (Drums) and the fabulous Kat Epple of flute.
I’m about 2 weeks into this one, and I’ve got about a month and a half more work to do if I keep my schnoz to the grindstone.
I’ll keep you posted…
Oh yeah, please remember (and tell your friends…):
THIS IS NOT THE HEAVY ALBUM, that one is next…but they both get released simultaneously so all us misanthropes will have something to vent with before reading a National Geo to Ghost.
Heavy or not, I don’t really care, ’cause Townsend has a serious case of the Midas touch, and he’s got it bad. And, no, I don’t mean he can fix your car, numb nuts.
So this sounds awesome. Hopefully the plan is still to get out Ghost and “THE HEAVY ALBUM,” Deconstruction, in March.
Thanks to Brian Koz for the tip!
