I would assume most of the recordings would be done at his own Hogg Hill Mill Studio in Sussex as he's been doing (on and off) since the Nineties.
It's cheaper than ****ing out money to rent a studio and he has the bonus that he can work at his own pace.
Thanks, johnnymain! That makes sense... It's a place that's comfortable and familiar for him, and no doubt dear to his heart... and why rent when you own your own studio.
I've seen videos of the studio on YouTube...
he did a tour of it for a program once, was very interesting, and shows Paul's great sense of humor.
and the video for Calico Skies (such a touching and lovely tribute to Linda!) was filmed in Sussex.
As for the album, I'd imagine it's mostly done by now. I remember reading that a single was for the end of Spring and then the whole thing to come in Winter. They did give an actual month for the single but I can't recall now. And, I'm referring to Northern Hemisphere seasons, by the way. I've had to convert them in my head. I don't know how long the process usually takes but I'd imagine you'd record over a month or two then it'd stay in post-production for ages while marketing gets working which is the stage it's in now, I'd say.
Thanks, W. D. Stevens! Appreciate knowing how the process works... I guess it's sort of like making a film, you do the filming and it stays in post production for a long time, and then there's the marketing and distribution...
There's no such thing as crashing the convo here on our forum!
That's very true, JL4761. Forums are a wonderful place where many people can post at once, and still be read... not like a spoken conversation where only one person can speak at a time and be heard. And with spoken conversations you can never scroll back, lol.
