Ben’s Brother frontman Jamie Hartman checked in with fans on the British indie pop group’s blog at MySpace (@bensbrothermusic), offering an update on their second album. Jamie writes:
..IS the final name for the new Ben’s Brother album.
Last Friday I went into the studio to hear two more mixes – a song called ‘Stalemate’, which is a duet between myself and Joss Stone, and another song called ‘Apologize’ – which is a contender for first single next year.
I took an A&R man whom I have known for a few years now and whose ears I trust into the studio with me, because I wanted his opinions about the mixes – and I’m glad to say he was happy he’d taken the time to come across London to hear them. The new album is going to be bigger and better than the last – I know that now.
Before hearing the mixes I was nervous – stressed and unsure of how things were coming along – but I left the studio on Friday evening feeling good about life – even if it looks like I am facing giant battles over the next few months to make sure you get to hear these songs. Well – we all have sh** to deal with.
Take heart, be true to yourselves, and never never never never give up!
love and respect
