Here are some of the good words coming out of europe about the new record Working Until I Die. Maybe you can even translate some of this for me.
"Perfect Blend of Tradition and Modern"
Three Chords and The Truth(UK)
"Pure and Honest"
Country Music People(UK)
"Money Well Spent"
"If given the choice between the new CD's by Grant Langston or Dwight Yoakam, I would pick Langston." - Spencer Leigh, Country Music People
Rock N Reel (UK)
BUSCA - Marco Verdi (Italy)KOUNTRY KORRAL MAGAZINE (Sweden)
FIRST Midwest Record
GRANT LANGSTON/Working Until I Die: Back when everyone was listening to Led Zep, Beach Boys and other chart toppers, outsiders were proud to listen to stuff made out beyond the land of Byrds. Bakersfield! Non Waylon/Willie outlaw! Proto punk/insurgent county that made George Jones look like the Sugar Plum Fairy. Great stuff all. Langston makes it seem like other people were listening as well long before the Internet could bring the malcontents together. Working man's blues for the 10s (he turned off his phone and email!), this is killer stuff. Insurgent country that mixes twang with strum and drang, this easily makes up for all that lost vinyl that was more valuable than Clearasil for getting us through our teen years. Check it out.
Second DESERT STAR NEWS
I just wanted to share the new and first video from the new record, Working Until I Die. It's called Trouble Knows and we had a great time playing dress-up and taking a tour through 50 years of country music. If you like the video, you can really help us out by sharing this in social media and even telling your friends to check it out.
We just completed the cover shot photo session for the new record. It was a blast. For any of that session to make sense I need to tell you that we're changing the title of the record to "Working Until I Die"
Why is Royal Monaco on the trash heap (for now)? We spent a great deal of time talking about the concept for the album design. Royal Monaco is a car, in fact the first car I learned to drive, but I liked the title because it could be anything. When we started working on exactly what the cover should be it was difficult to nail it down.
We talked about shooting a car, but i did that on the 2004 record, Road Side Service. Not interested in a cover that comes to close to that one. So, that pretty much ruled out a car image.
We also began to look at the songs that made the record and how they might be related. Royal Monaco was conceived as a title before I had even written some of the songs that will make up the playlist. When I looked at the 13 tracks that will make up the record I started to see a through-line.
I saw a smart article the other day that examined which 10 year span in the history of the country has been the worst. The civil war years were, if I remember, the worst. WWII, The Depression, are all up there...and the last ten years - from Sept 2001 to Sept 2011 are in the top five. Not to bring the room down, but it just seems that whatever safety net we ever had...rising home prices, a pension...those things are gone. Perhaps never to return and so like I say in the song, "I'll be working until I die."
So, when I look at the song list I see titles like, Little Less Fun, I Ain't That Kind of Cowboy, Coming For You, and the mentioned, Working Until I Die I saw aggressive subjects....fighting, insisting, mourning....working hard and refusing to give up. I still couldn't quite nail it down.
One night over many beers Tony Horkins said, I've got it. This about is about working until you die and it should be called, Working Until I Die. Damn he was right.
So WUID it is. That fed right into our cover photo, which we shot in the most bland and soulless corporate office we could find. Here are some behind the scene's snapshots. I felt so fortunate to have British mega talent photog John Chappel on the job. His work is amazing and although I haven't seen the final images I'm confident it's going to be great.
We're deep in the post-production stage of this record. The songs are being mixed in Boston. We're getting email tracks every day - making notes and rushing around to listen in different sound environments. Some people say to me, "Who cares if it sounds good? Everybody just dumbs it down to MP3's and listens with ear buds. It doesn't need to sound good!" I just can't do that. I still have my fingers crossed that someday we'll be back to the high fidelity world, and I want the record to sound as good as it can. Even if most people won't notice. I'LL NOTICE!
So there's mixing, mastering (more on that when it happens) album art design, and manufacturing. I'm projecting a January 15 completion date...keep your fingers crossed.
I have very good news to announce. I think it even falls into the GREAT category.
Thanks to so many of you fine people, we've reached the pre-sell goal for the new record! As of this moment, 134 people have purchased one of the ROYAL MONACO packages accounting for $8,051! I'm so blown away by the generosity and interest in this recording. It's really gone better than my wildest imagination and I can't thank you all enough. Truly, I cannot. One person that deserves immediate and copious thanks is my wife, Catie. Her assistance has been monumental.
Some very talent people came over last night and sat in my backyard. We made this little video demo of a song that is going to be on the new record, "Working Until I Die". The cast of contributors includes Supermodel Bassist, Josh Fleeger. Songwriter and Singer Extraordinare, Sarah Stanley, Hot Shot Guitarist and Leader of his own blues band, Johnny Hawthorn, and guitarist of the fab band Last American Buffalo, Josh Grolemund. (Here on drums)
You can still buy pre-sell packages until the project closes on June 26th, so if you know someone who would like to buy one of the packages, tell them to go for it. If you haven't yet and want to participate in this pre-sell, feel free to go ahead. We would love you to. Click Here.
Lastly, if you have contributed. On July 1, we'll be sending a request for your mailing address and the name as you'd like it printing within the liner notes of the record. We will also be documenting each and every part of the recording process so you can keep track. I'll be updating my blog as often as possible, so bookmark this page.
This is going to be a fantastic ride, I'm certain of that. Thanks for your vote of support and I look forward to sharing the final recording with you all.
