I’m delighted to announce I’m working on a new album due for release in 2017.
Year of The Nightingale is a new collection of songs based on the Bahá’í Writings and is being produced by Kelly Snook (Imogen Heap, MiMu Gloves), who I worked with previously on A Few Honest Words.
Kelly and I are preparing this album especially for 2017, when Bahá’í Communities and their friends around the world will celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the birth of Bahá’u’lláh (1817-1892), whose writings I’ll be singing on the album.
But we need your help!
On Thursday 1 September 2016, we’ll be launching a 30-day Kickstarter Campaign to raise the funds required to complete the album. Through Kickstarter’s fundraising platform, you will be able to support the making of the album in various ways: by pre-ordering the album, booking me to play a concert for your community, or simply sharing the news with friends. All the funds we raise in September will enable us to pay for studio time, musicians, engineers and designers – so that we can complete the album and deliver it to you in 2017.
I’ll send you all the details on 1 September, but for now, please do visit the official Facebook Event: Luke Slott Kickstarter where I’ve just posted a 30-second teaser video for the new album! (direct youtube link here)
As always, my deepest thanks for your support,
