Wow! You're Amazing!
Well, we finally made it through 2020. The new year is a chance to kind of reinvent, I'm thinking.
I'm going back to the studio (which now allows musicians in - a novel idea) to work on another album. I'm working with an amazing bunch of musicians at a small studio, out in the woods in Connecticut, US (about 2 hours from New York City, but a world away from the city life.)
I'll keep you posted on new music.
Finally gathering togther the songs that you've been listening to on N1M into an album. New Lamps for Old.
Here's an iTunes link to the singles:
New Lamps for Old is a reference to the story of Aladdin. It's a part of the 1001 Nights or Arabian Nights collection that includes "Sinbad the Sailor" and "Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves."
Anyway, Aladdin had this magic lamp with the genie in it, and while he was away, the evil magician dressed up as a street vendor calling out "New Lamps for Old."
Aladdin's wife was lured by the old man, and decided to trade the dirty magic lamp, for a new shiny (worthless) one. Which was the magicians goal.
Anyway, it seemed like a great story moment, with lots of life lessons buried in there.
My best wishes for a Wonderful 2021, filled with Love and Music.
Thanks again for your amazing support. Your messages keep me going and brighten my day!
Love ya, Arnie
