DP Studio Report – March 2016

We started the next album in Nashville on the 28th January. Thirteen days of pre-production and thirteen days recording in the studio. Lucky thirteen because we have thirteen tracks, all but finished except for vocals. Coincidence or what? How many will end up on he album is hard to tell yet… maybe all of them, maybe not. I won’t even begin to describe the music––an impossible job in any case. Suffice to say I’ve been listening to the rough mixes and there’s a smile on my face.

Bob Ezrin and the team did their usual superb job. The next stage will be IG and I spending a week together, honing up on the lyrics before recording vocals in Toronto in April.

It was a real pleasure to meet up and jam with our Nashville friends. It’s a great city to be in, all kinds of nightlife, live music everywhere. It almost feels like being back in the 60s. Don and I went to see Diana Ross with the Nashville Philharmonic one night, the place was jumping, great band, she was exactly what is expected, voice, teeth and costume changes, etc. Jay and Dave of Rival Sons came to visit us in the studio when their tour hit town. We saw them do a fantastic gig that night, what a great band.

    G’day Roger, Loved the track by track descriptions from Now What so looking forward to something similar for this album.
    In fact, I can’t find the Now What track by track descriptions (as I would like to go back and re-read them).

    Dear Roger,
    it’s wonderful to read such wonderful news, after having heard so sad news (the death of George Martin and Keith Emerson). Please be successful in writing the lyrics (with Ian Gillan). Be sure: We can#t wait for the new album too long. That makes us crazy.
    Your fan Hans-Jürgen

    Looking forward to hearing it Roger. Hope the lyric writing goes well. Any idea when you are likely to launch the album?
