A MESSAGE FROM THE CRANES
Just a quick update as some of you have been wondering where we’ve gone to !
Well, a few months ago I was asked to compose a piece of music based around a story in a book. It’s quite an interesting project with many other songwriters contributing. Each writer has been commissioned to write some music for a chosen story from a collection of short stories. It won’t be released until next year so can’t say too much more about it yet. But my piece is 9 minutes long and I have been working with the cellist Martin Radford! It’s been a lovely thing to work on and I really hope you will like the end result, when the time comes !
Meanwhile we’re finally also working on a new Cranes album! Jim’s got a massive amount of recorded material which he is currently editing. For the rest of this summer we are going to be working together to see what happens. We’re not planning to play any shows this summer as we are concentrating on writing, but hope we will have more news for you in the Autumn. xxx”
