ELO's "Sweet Talkin' Woman" Cover To Be Released 9/28

I have something special brewing for Electric Light Orchestra fans!

First of all, yes, there is certainly lots of new music on the way. Twenty Sixteen has been one hell of a busy year in preparation for the follow-up to last summer's debut album and the hard work I am putting into this is proving to be well worth it as new melodic territory is explored and production quality sees noteworthy advances. In the coming weeks I will be posting further details here concerning the new album as well as regular studio updates as recording progresses.

In the meantime, draw a circle around 9/28 because I will be releasing a cover of ELO's classic "Sweet Talkin' Woman" — the euphoric spirit of the original is very much alive on this one.
