WHAT'S *YOUR* CONCEPT ALBUM? It's Sunday so let's take a hard left turn here: When I ask that question, "concept album" is a metaphor for "that thing you always wanted to do". Maybe you're working on it now, maybe you're trying to figure out how to start it. Maybe you did it already, and if so, that's great. I'm not even just talking about music here. Could be anything.

I say this because of what I'm experiencing and realizing as it sinks in that "Scenes From The Flood" is complete and released. I suspected somewhere inside that this was really the record I wanted to make for my entire life. But now that it's really out there, it's no longer a suspicion. It feels like a noise that's been in my head for years - decades? - has been replaced by a quiet calm. It's kind of amazing.

And then I thought: Surely everyone has (or had) something like this in their head. Why not kick that up for discussion on a Sunday?

We'll have plenty of time to talk about the record going forward, and more press is coming up this week. Also, I know not everyone has heard it yet, and no one has the vinyl yet! So, plenty more SFTF excitement to come.

I remain profoundly grateful for the incredible feedback thus far. 🙂

P.S. This pic was captured not far from the album front and back cover shots, which were taken at roughly the same time of day just under three years ago.

YOUR THOUGHTS ON RELEASE DAY + 1: I've said plenty about "Scenes From The Flood". Now it's your turn. If you've got it, and you've heard it, sound off! As they said back in the day, open thread.

This moonrise pic was taken last night, as I tried to absorb the feeling of knowing the album was finally out there, and how incredibly gracious and awesome everyone's reactions have been so far. Saying "thank you" is just totally inadequate. I can't put it into words. I can, however, always say that "Scenes From The Flood" was released under a full moon in Pisces on Friday the 13th...for those who take note of those sorts of things. 😉

There's more press and reviews coming up, starting on Monday. For now, the microphone is yours.

THE REAL HERO HERE: Forrester Savell mixed and mastered “Scenes From The Flood” with me for **nine months**. You’re hearing his genius and determination right now.

Australia, you have much to be proud of. 🇦🇺
