Heartbreak Sunday

Hi guys. I have a brand new playlist for you this Sunday. It’s called Heart Breakers and it’s all about those pesky end-of-romance moments and memories of those moments, when it seems like you’ll never be able to feel good again or laugh or smile or even go on living, but then, miraculously… you do. Enjoy!

Another Sunday, another playlist

Hi Guys. It’s Sunday in Canada today, so I’m sending out another playlist. This one is called These Days. I did a little curating on it recently, so there’s 12 songs now instead of 10. What I like to do with my playlists, is put on my headphones and play them in the background while I’m writing or surfing. Seems like I get more done when part of my brain is distracted by music. Anyway, hope you like the new list.

Dropped the album last Friday, dude.

So, I dropped the album last friday. My buddy Jim, who I consider the ultimate authority on all things musical, says the proper parlance for real musicians these days is to say you “dropped” an album. So, last week when I said I released my album… well, I guess misspoke.

Donald GlennReal musicians don’t say “released” anymore, Jim says. They also don’t say “launched” or “put out” or “delivered” or any of those things. They say “dropped” and if you can add the word “man” or “dude” to the end of the sentence, well that just makes it even better.

So I dropped my album last Friday… dude.

You can pick it up or stream it anywhere, but here’s some of my favourite spots…

It seems a little surreal to be finally letting it go. I guess it would be fair to say that it’s been a long time coming. I actually wrote part of one of the songs, Starting Out, more than 40 years ago. Others like Slipping Away and Don’t You Ever Wonder Why first saw the light of day in the early 90s.

And then there’s Away You Go Flying, which I wrote a few days before the end of 2019. I actually had the whole album ready to go when that song first started percolating in my brain. I thought it might be a good one, and I decided to delay the album release so I could add it. I laid down the vocal and guitar as a single track, and then I added drums and other percussion, a complicated bass line and I started experimenting with a fiddle melody. But then I thought, no. It should just be the original vocal-guitar track. It’s more honest that way. More authentic. And what could be more authentic or honest than a song about your dead Mother?

Anyway, it’s coming out Friday. I’ll post again after the release with links to samples etc. Hope you like it.
