We have had it on good authority for a while now that Derek’s next album was going to be different. And now it’s official! If you don’t get Derek’s newsletter (for which there is no excuse and you should remedy that right now!) here is what the latest one had to say, among other things.
Derek’s back in the studio, readying Stockholm Syndrome
It’s been over a year since Derek released his critically acclaimed The Ringing Bell, and he’s currently writing and recording his new album, which we hear is going to be titled Stockholm Syndrome. He’s collaborating with long time friend and former Caedmon’s Call bandmate Josh Moore on what is rumored to be a more experimental, electronic album.
Teasing with programmed and decidedly more ‘inorganic’ elements, Stockholm Syndrome is shaping up to be Derek’s most ambitious album to date.
Be on the lookout for a tentative May 2009 release.
We also know that Derek is feverishly working in the studio all this month on the record. This record is shaping up to be one of Derek’s boldest musical statements yet!
