By Chris Moore:
And welcome once again, one and all, to the most recent installment of new, original music here at the Laptop Sessions music blog. We like to call this “Original Wednesday,” as we take a break from our daily acoustic covers to air a song written by one of us.
Today’s selection is the second in my “New Album Preview Project.” Each time I post an original song, I will record the next song in order of my preliminary track listing for my new album. From now until I’ve posted them all, I’ll be continuing this project, and hopefully it won’t be long after I finish this little side project that I will finish recording the actual album.
Probably the most difficult part of this project is that I needed to come up with a track listing now, as opposed to when I usually do — after I’ve recorded the principal tracks for an album. To be honest, this order may change by the time I actually release the album, but it’ll be interesting to see how close I came to estimating what the final product will look like.
“No More” is going to be the second track on the album — one with strong guitars up in the mix and an energetic, driving beat. The song is fairly self-explanatory, particularly in the first verse or so. What I like about the song (and another reason why I like having the track so early on the album) is that the second half can be interpreted in a few different ways. This works, as I hope you will see when it is released, for the album concept as a whole.
On the heels of Jim’s big announcement today, I’m definitely getting the itch to see my numbers going more quickly in an upwards direction, so I hope to come back with good news and milestones in the weeks and months ahead, to join him in these exciting times for the music blog.
Thank you, as always, to our loyal viewers (and, if you aren’t one, I hope you will be one starting now!). This is really only the second or third time I’ve played this song in full since I finished writing it, so it’s just a starting poing. I hope you enjoy it and see the potential in it. That’ll be it for me for now, but stay tuned for Jeff and then Jim and then I’ll be back on Saturday.
See you next session!
