Surprise! I’ve Been In London This Whole Time Making A New Album With Frank Turner


You may have thought that I was learning a new song every day for the 31 Covers in 31 Days Project, but I was actually in London, England making a new album with Frank Turner!

Video number 32 is an original song from my upcoming new album produced by Frank and to be released on Xtra Mile Recordings (home of Against Me!, Tim Barry, Dave Hause, Northcote, Frank Turner, The Riverboat Gamblers, Vinnie Caruana and more).

Here we are rehearsing our duet “This Sure As Hell Ain’t My Life” at Reservoir Studios. Video by Ben Morse. More updates and information to come but for now, please pre-order the new album HERE.

Some Important Information Regarding My New Album


So I’m sitting in the studio mixing Goodbye, California, and it occurred to me that I need to thank you.

So much.

I wouldn’t be sitting here without your contribution to this recording process, and you can’t possibly ever know how much that means to me. I could not have done this without you. I would not be here without you.

Because of this, I wanted to ask your opinion on naming this collection of songs. My thoughts are leaning towards calling the album something that suggests the fact it was all fan and friend funded…but I can’t quite think of just what exactly quite yet. So I thought I’d ask. What do you think?

Thank you, So Much. We did it can you believe it!?!?! 🙂 Also thank you for your patience, I know this has been a long time comin’ but I assure you, it sounds so freakin awesome it was totally worth it!!!!! haha 😉

Gratefully Yours,


ps if you want to help with this final stage or making this record you can still do so at http://www.billythekidonline.com/

pps there are a bunch of new fund-raising options including getting me mailed to your house for a weekend and owning half the publishing rights to any song you choose!

ppss please tag and forward this to anyone who you think might be interested 🙂
