My new album “There Is Only Right Now” is now on streaming services:
Two more days. Originally I thought this Friday would be a pre-sale…but it looks like the album will be done by then. There will be three ways to pick it up:
1. There Is Only Right Now – 14 Song Version
2. There Is Only Right Now – Deluxe Digital with all 14 songs PLUS all 31 Demos from the 31 Songs in 31 Days Project PLUS a Bonus Song
3. 31 Songs in 31 Days – All the Demos from the 31 Songs in 31 Days Project
I will also be posting lyric sheets for songs from the new album. Advance links will be posted in Patreon for Patreon peeps.
On Saturday at 2pm CST join me for a virtual listening party with Patrons. Sign up at www.patreon.com/BillyPettinger to take part. We will all press play in our homes then I will share anecdotes and stories about the songs and recording process over Discord Text Chat.
Eight months. I have been working on these songs for eight months.
I look forward to hearing what you think about them
If you don’t see too much of me it’s cause I spend most of my time on discord or with patrons (it never sat right with me that entities get to make bucks by selling our screen time).I officially have all the drums tracks for the New Album. People will ask “How Is This Album Different Than the Last” and we are used to hearing some semi-convoluted reply such as “It Is the Most Honest I Have Ever Been” or “It’s My Favourite Thing I Have Ever Done”.
I always struggled with this question because my mind goes right to: “Well, it’s still me, and it’s still my songs… I’m just hopefully a little less dumb now”.
This collection of songs is drastically different in that I wrote 31 songs in 31 days, and then patrons voted on which songs I should record. Two of the songs, I was sure I would never hear again. At least one I remember uploading and thinking “What Have I Done” because it was so unlike anything I’d written before, and was sure people would hate it.If you’ve ever thought about trying out being a supporter on this platform, now would be the perfect time. It’s only $1 a month or $10.41 for the whole year and you’ll get advance listens to the songs. I’ll be tracking over the next fews months and there are these things called lenses if you’re a $5 a month or $40 a year supporter that are kinda like stories in that they disappear within 24 hours. This is where I post video of tracks as I’m tracking them, including parts that may never make it, and me making a whole mess of mistakes and then laughing my face off.
Now would be a god time to give Patreon a try cause
a) I only make an album once every two years
b) many of the videos evaporate for all time within a day of being posted
c) the people who are a part of this community have been integral in this process. They voted for the songs, and will continue to be involved, for example: This Track of This Track, This Mix Vs. That Mix, etc.
