Missy Higgins checked in with fans on her newsletter earlier this week, talking about the follow-up to her sophomore album ‘On a Clear Night’. The Australian singer songwriter tells readers:
For the last 3 months I’ve been in Nashville, Tennessee recording my *drum roll* third album! Yes, it’s been a bloody long time waiting, sorry about that. The upside is that I’ve done some really cool things in my time off over the last couple of years in an attempt to re-fill this old Creative Well, and hopefully it’s going to make for a really inspired album. Those of you who have been following my (somewhat disjointed and often ridiculous) tweets will know that I’m recording with a good friend of mine, Aussie musician Butterfly Boucher, who’s co-producing my album with a fabulous Nashville man named Brad Jones. The three of us are having a ball, playing various instruments we’ve never tried before, laughing a lot, throwing around crazy ideas to see if they stick and just generally being creative. It’s exactly the kind of experience I wanted the making of this album to be. And I’m fully immersed in the process, so much so that I’m sleeping out the back of the recording studio in a dark little cave with bad seventies wall-paper, dark green shag carpet and last night a raccoon almost feel through the roof onto my head, no joke.
