A little update for those interested in the future of Famous Groupies. First, let's chat about our next album, "The Chameleon Sessions". We have been chipping away at the songs for a few months now, and as some of us Groupies now live in different parts of the world, the recording process has proven difficult, but thankfully everyone has the ability to record their parts from their flats.
The Chameleon Sessions will be very different from the previous albums, many more influences will be apparent and this album will also feature many guest artists and musicians. We have met lots of new friends since releasing our albums, many of them are fine songwriters, musicians and artists themselves, so we thought we would invite some of those talented friends to join in on these chameleon songs. And I think you will like the end result. We hope to release this album this summer, preferably in July.
The Chameleon Sessions may very well be the final release for this version of Famous Groupies. That is to say, this group has been somewhat of a family affair, but as some of us have moved on and no longer live in Scotland, and some of us are getting married and starting new lives in new places and some of us are simply too busy to continue setting aside the time to record all these songs that Patrick McKenzie left behind. Having said that, I (Kirkcaldy) may still carry on by myself and record more songs from Patrick's vast catalogue. There is much of Patrick's work that I believe should be heard, so I have no immediate plans to stop recording them anytime soon. I will keep you posted on that future.
So, from the list of songs below, you might have noticed that we have switched out a song. The song "Probably Just As Well" has been replaced with "This World Wonders". This World Wonders is a very revealing song, and once I realized what it was about I deiced that it should definitely be on this album. However, the deleted song will probably be a B side or a bonus song, so it will still be released as well.
In other news, we have released our first album, "Rehearsing The Multiverse" - on all digital and streaming platforms. So if you'd like to finally buy the album on iTunes - it's there for the taking. And of course, Apple Music, Amazon Music, iHeart Radio, Spotify and a 150 other relative platforms carry our album for your listening pleasure. Eventually we will release the other two albums for these formats, but that's down the road a wee bit.
Be on the look out for the first two singles from The Chameleon Sessions. They should be set free in June.
The band would like to thank everyone reading this for your support and kind words regarding Patrick's music. It has been a great joy to bring these songs to an endearing audience who appreciate them as much as we do.
Many thanks from Kirkcaldy and Famous Groupies.
