There’s been a bit of internet kerfuffle about the whole thing, so I wanted to talk about it in depth for a moment or two.
The camp is going to be an intense hangout based around songwriting as a concept.
It’s not a paid meet-and-greet – I still hang out after my shows as much as possible to meet whoever, and believe me there are a lot of them coming everywhere around the world very soon.
I have never been interested in commodifying my company.
In amongst that madness, I’m going to be spending a week in the Forever Wild Catskill Forest Reserve talking about songwriting.
The Music Masters Camps have been going for a while now and have hosted some amazing artists – Steve Earle, Richard Thompson, Melissa Auf der Maur and others – so I was excited to be asked to take part.
The songbook comes digitally, on double CD, on 3x LP, and as part of a box set that includes vinyl, 2 DVDs (“Get Better” and the Show 2000 set) and unseen photos.
I’ve just announced a solo set at London’s ULU on November 25th as part of the 2nd annual A Peaceful Noise event, which is part of the Nick Alexander Memorial Trust, commemorating my friend Nick, who died at the Bataclan. Lost Evenings is edging towards sold out, though there are still a few tickets left (including for the first two nights, keep looking people! The Campfire Punkrock Music Masters camp next summer is also selling well, if you want to come hang out in the Catskills and talk about songs for a few days, get your tickets while you can.
That’s all the news that’s currently fit to print, from me. This one feels a touch more significant, so I thought I’d say a few words about it before getting on a plane back to London.
The box-set and the vinyl will be available on December 15th. The DVD of show 2000 will be available on its own at some point down the road.
I hope people enjoy the collection, whether newcomers or people who’ve been part of the team for years. Right now, the Sleeping Souls and I are in Texas working through the rest of the new material that will comprise my 7th album, which will be released in (hopefully) the Spring of 2018.
The price tag is on the high side, but most of that comes down to the fact that the camp is in a nature resort in the Catskill mountains for 5 days.
