Announcing... The Lovers by Wall of Tom

As I lay in wait of the final finish line, I see the album so clearly now. It really is the perfect explanation, to what the hell we have been up to, for the last two years.

Two Years.

It will be, in full, 10 songs. It shoulda been twelve, but we are giving two of them away since they are covers, so that will be a fun little extra for everyone.

The full album 'The Lovers' from beginning to end is such an emotional journey, like life, like love... The songs have taken on a life of their own, as they tend to do. I have listened to them too much now, I need to let them all go. They have filled my soul in a way that only music can do... and I have never been prouder.

I would like to say that there is a little something for everyone on this album... since there are so many facets to love. Each song is from a different place, so.. there is a beauty in the diversity. I just love... love.

A special thank you to Paul Frost, of the rockin' UK trio The Zico Chain, who has been a true wizard behind the mixing desk. Taking all the months of layers upon layers... guitars, violin, drums, vocals, piano, and bass.. creating such an individual sound. He has captured Wall of Tom with a capital T. We are forever grateful for his fancy ears.

This album has truly been made by a bunch of cool friends, who I am truly blessed to be surrounded by and able to create beautiful music with. It has been a labor of love, every step of the way. When I think back on this musical journey that we have been on creating this album, it has been immensely rewarding. Wall of Tom truly has evolved.

I can't believe it took us this long to make. Seriously. I am not a patient person. But becoming a parent has changed me a bit, so now I am reaping the benefits of releasing something to remember.

Coming soon... to an iTunes near you..
