I hope you’re doing well! I just finished counting the number of messages I received since I first asked you to send me pictures, and I stopped counting after a few hundreds as I would probably still be here doing so until sundown! :) This is so incredible, inspiring, and it’s with a true humble heart that I want to thank you all for your involvement in what will be such a recollection of unforgettable treasures! What a great way to start this Saturday while listening to Radiohead’s incredible 2003 album Hail to the Thief.
As I was running through all those pictures earlier on, I started thinking about how this European tour photo book project doesn’t obviously involve everyone, which gave me an idea! As you know, we’re about to start working on what will be Alex’s new musical journey (I don’t use the word album when it comes to Alex, since we never know where this journey will lead him and us all afterwards once we get started. I love to keep some doors open – it’s called experience!)
Here’s the thing: I would simply like to know if you have any questions regarding Alex heading back to the studio to work on what will come next after Windows in the Sky, Standing Under Bright Lights, all those direct-to-vinyl live performances we did in our church-studio and at Alex’s home in Virginia, as well as the recently-released single The Power of the Heart!
I’m asking this since I realized I probably was as curious as you all might be right now… Because to be honest with you – and I think it’s a wonderful thing – I don’t have any clue whatsoever of where this next musical journey will lead us, which makes me feel and stand right in the middle of being really excited and thrilled but doubtful and frightened as well... A very strange place to be!
So, please, by all means, feel free to send me any questions you might have about how we’re getting prepared and ready for such a journey with Alex…! It can be anything, from what’s a day like as he’s preparing himself, to what music he’s listening to, books he’s reading, how the actual state of the world affects him, influences him, or even moves him! Whatever comes to your mind (gently excluding how old he is and what he eats for breakfast!) All you have to do is to reply to this email and it comes straight to me alone!
In the meantime, exclusively for you, please enjoy what our upcoming traveling ship will look like in the next few weeks! :)
Your Friend and Host,
