Already starting to wonder about Derek’s next studio release? Here’s something to whet your appetite. Our sources tell us that the record (which Derek has not done any writing for) will be on store shelves sometime between May and August of next year.
A new radio version of “Take to the World” will be finding its way onto playlists at your local christian radio station sometime in the next week or two. Rumor is that Derek is really excited about the way it turned out (a lot moreso than the radio version of ‘she must and shall go free’). Due to label constraints, the radio version of “Take to the World” will feature Derek singing the second verse of the song, replacing Dan Haseltine of Jars of Clay (Essential Records).
If you missed last night’s chat with Derek, we have done a fast edit on the transcript and posted it here on [derekwebb.net]. We’d like to thank Derek again for chatting with us and everyone who could make it out for stopping by and feeding us questions. We’ll do this again soon, so keep your eyes on [derekwebb.net] for future events.
Our chat with Derek is still on for tonight. Use your favorite IRC client to connect to any of the undernet.org IRC servers. We will be in #dwnetchat. This is a moderated chat; 10 minutes prior to the start, everyone will be de-voiced save for the [derekwebb.net] staffers and Derek himself. Once it hits 9:00 in Times Square, we’ll be good to go. If you have questions about IRC or won’t be able to attend the chat but want your question asked, hit the Derek Discussion Board topic on the chat. We look forward to seeing you there!
We’re happy to announce that the first official derekwebb.net chat will take place with Derek on Tuesday, June 17, at 9PM EST. Details on how to participate will be posted here at some point before the chat takes place. Stay tuned.
Welcome to derekwebb.net, brought to you by the people who brought you caedmonscall.net.

Be sure to check in with us regularly as over the coming months we plan to bring you new journal entries, chats, new song demos, and tons of other stuff you’ll only find here.
