It's been a long time, hasn't it? Life just takes us elsewhere I guess.
I've been sitting on this music for a while. A really long while. Work on this album originally began shortly after I released Lost in Translation in 2013. It's taken many forms since then, and I ultimately shelved it in 2015. It was a response to something I was feeling at the time, and I just wasn't comfortable with expressing it. I can't explain exactly why, other than I just got a negative feeling from it. It was political, and it was angry, and I wasn't quite sure that's what I wanted to express. So I walked away.
Over the next year or so I'd come back to reshape it from time to time, trying to lighten the mood of it until it eventually became this collection that you'll hear today. But even then, I chose not to release it. Years went by, and I just missed music so much. In 2016, I sold my keyboard, the last musical instrument I owned, in order to pay rent. At the time, that felt like the end of music for a while. But I miss it. I've missed it every day.
Things would change over the years, my career in film and television would slowly improve, and I'd start to see the light at the end of the tunnel so to speak. Which brings us to today. I still love music, and I miss music. I miss it so much. So this album represents a return. I want to do this again, and I will. Soon. But until then, I hope you all enjoy this strange creation, Behold A Pale Horse.
