What can I write about Color? It's an album that's been much talked about, often played live, but until now never compiled in its entirety.
Color marks a change in style for me - it contains upbeat, audience-friendly piano-pop that focuses on society as a whole (rather than being introspective) and generally has a more hopeful outlook than some of my older albums. It's my first album with album artwork that involves any sort of color and is the first piano-heavy album released since BLOOM, which, fun fact, was also released by ripping audio from YouTube videos.
Which brings me to maybe the most important thing about this version of Color: These are live recordings. These are not studio recordings. There's no editing to these. Don't be shocked that they sound like a guy set up a phone and took a video of himself playing a piano and singing into a microphone - that's exactly what I did. I've been working on these songs for roughly a year-and-a-half and I'm ready for them to be heard.
I'm still in the process of making "studio" recordings of these songs, and one day the album will receive a proper release, but until that time, here you have Color (live). I hope you enjoy listening to these recordings as much as I enjoyed making them! >
