Elaine has announced the title and "face" of the new album, "Elemental", which will have 11 original tracks and a bonus cover number. The front cover can be seen (left) and the rest of the album art is being designed and produced by Elaine herself.
Also just announced is a special Album Launch Concert, to be held at All Hallow's Church Hall, Twickenham, on Saturday, November 2nd. As well as helping to pay for the venue, money from sales of the new album is going to be donated to the excellent, liocal charity, "Home Start", so we urge you to come along and support this event by buying your ticket (only £8, from September 1st) and buying your copy of the new album on the night!
Recording of the new, Kindred Spirit Band album at Skyline Studios resumed from 18th May!
The six remaining tracks now only need Martin Ash's overdubs on violin and viola (and possibly some more mandolin), some vocals from Catherine, extra percussion and finishing touches before mixing and mastering!
The last six tracks are:-
1. Make A Change - a positive song with a foot tapping, world music vibe.
2. Need Your Love - a cosmic experience, based around the Philip Pullman, 'Northern Lights' trilogy, with an with Eric Clapton rock feel.
3. No Smoke Without Fire - the bluesy rock number which won the March song competition. See more below.
4. Alchemyst - an epic, scientific, historical and intriguing number, which Elaine wrote after reading about the life and work of the astrologer, alchemist and advisor to Queen Elizabeth 1st, Dr. John Dee.
5. Vikings - another epic piece, laced with myth and featuring a Viking invasion and battle. It has a Game of Thrones feel in places and some interesting time signature changes!
6. Feelin Good (a cover made famous by Nina Simone and Muse, which we have made our own and which fans have asked us to record.)
The final touches to the recording are being made in August and work begins on the CD artwork from now!
Last year the Kindred Spirit Band recorded the first half of the new album including a very special population song.
The song hopes to explain why the growing global population is so damaging to our future and how the people of the world can act in a positive way, without the need to wait for government action (which looks like coming too late to prevent environmental disaster)!
Please have a listen to the song and share, share, share the web page for this song.....
First Batch of New Tracks Ready!
The band have been back at Skyline Studios since February 2018 recording six new numbers (see details of the numbers below). Check out the recording process we went through here.
We now have six, new song tracks to release as singles via digital downloads or to add to a physical CD, if we decide there are enough people wanting a physical CD to justify the cost of manufacturing one. We have created approx 1 minute clips of each one for you to have a listen to them, below!
