From the mailing list:
Hello! If it seems like I haven’t written in a while, it’s because I haven’t written in a while. I’ve been hard at work on a new album with all new material, which apparently means I have to write a lot of songs and do a lot of work. Which is totally OK with me! I love to work!
Here are the things I want to tell you about.
1) The New Record Album
Yes, it’s going very well thank you. We’ve got a bunch of stuff recorded and it’s very exciting to hear it coming together. I still have to write a couple more “good ones” but the ones I already have are not too shabby. The band sounds fantastic and John Flansburgh and I are bringing in a bunch of other talented musicians to play their talented instruments. It’s good stuff, and I hope to have a clearer idea of when it will actually be finished and you can hear it. Stay tuned.
2) The Cruise
Also going well – we’ve pulled together a nice lineup of entertainers and it’s going to be a TON of fun. In case you missed the late additions, here’s the complete lineup as of now: John Hodgman, Wil Wheaton, Paul and Storm, Bill Corbett, Kevin Murphy, Molly Lewis, Mike Phirman, and WAIT THERE’S MORE! John Roderick, Paul F. Tompkins, and Peter Sagal. Plus me. As I say, a TON of fun. For more details and updates check out http://www.jococruisecrazy.com.
3) Some Shows
There’s not a lot of touring happening these days, I have too much work to do writing good songs. But there are some opportunities to see me do my thang (i.e., play the guitar and sing about it). Look at this.
