I just wanted to let you all know that we are really hard at work up at Chad's house in the Hollywood hills recording the new album. As you know I always get really involved in making my music and you may have heard me say this before, but this is without a doubt my finest hour. I have worked really hard and put in a lot of extra time to ensure that the songs are strong. Chad is really a great producer and he is working me to the bone. We wrote a new song on Saturday in the studio that is possibly one of the best songs I've ever written. The album will be finished at the end of the month and we will mix the first week of March. I can tell you this: the album will have the most variety of my musical styles as it is where I am in my life. It is honest, and I believe I will push the boat further. I hope you all enjoy the ride.
