Five Times August’s Brad Skistimas checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace (@fivetimesaugust) on Thursday (June 18), talking about working on a new album. The Dallas, Texas pop singer writes:
Right now Kelly and I are back home in Dallas getting everything in line for the release of Five Times August’s next album “Life As A Song.” For those of you that don’t know, ‘Life’ will be sort of a “best of” album. I chose what I think are my best songs and what I think are the fan favorites, re-recorded them and will put them out as one collection later this year. The album is finished and ready to go, but we still need to do the album cover photo shoot and film the first music video before we move forward with a release date.
It was hard choosing which songs to put on this album, I hope everyone is happy with the song selection. I am positive it will be an entirely new listening experience compared to the old versions of the songs, THAT I can promise. So far the few people that have heard the album all feel that even though a lot of the songs have been released before they sound new, refined, and feel like I’m moving forward as an artist, which is what I hoped to accomplish, so that’s good! A lot of thought, care, and meaning went into this album, I can’t wait for you to hear it!
