RE: New Album Name and Release Date!

patience is a virtue?

I was trying to think of a band whose had success with a label, without losing the rights (masters) to their music.

The Dear Hunter and Foals came to mind, although in the case of Foals, I'm not sure. I thought they were on Rough Trade, and maybe their deal doesn't cause them to lose rights to their masters.

The Dear Hunter I'm sure have them as that is why they have their own label, and somehow have had success.

I'm not sure if Ballet the Boxer received the amount of promotion, attention and just reached as many people as Jimmy is used to (assumed it would).

I hate to say it, but if these new albums are going to get heard, it's going to have to be on Spotify and the other streaming services, as much as those services suck and don't pay the artists anything, it likely would lead to more demand for them to be bought both digital and physical formats as well.

Thanks for that. It was nice to see and hear his explanations.

I do wonder though why this kind of information (his plans for release, updates, and changes) isn't being announced in a more official capacity. Just going off the standards of how projects (especially crowdfunded projects) work now, I feel like keeping the people who have pre-ordered/pledged updated and clued in should be more of a priority. Getting pertinent news like this through the grapevine and rumor-mill instead of official correspondence just feels kinda...unthinking. (I realize that's nothing new here and I'm probably being petty, but still. It'd be nice to still feel considered and factored in.)

As far as releasing music and keeping rights, I wonder why he isn't considering Bandcamp. Of course, he'd still have to finance printing and distribution himself (pre-order funds?), but as far as a means of releasing music that doesn't necessitate giving away one's rights to it, it seems like the simplest, most tried-and-true method.

Yeah, I feel that. A mass email would be nice. I don't know who runs the site, social media, email list, etc. I know Ours isn't a large operation but shooting off an email probably takes less time than updating a site.

You're not being petty.

Jimmy's personal website used to have a journal section that I enjoyed reading (he only wrote in it a handful of times, but it was cool). It's been taken down, which is a damn shame. I wish that was still there. It would be a lovely way to communicate with (and keep) fans. His YouTube has less than 2,000 subscribers, which seems just incredible to me.

I guess at this point, I'll be happy if Spectacular Sight is released before the end of the year.

RE: New Album Name and Release Date!

From a post on Jimmy’s Instagram about a week ago:

Just a quick update...In a few weeks I will be releasing a solo record with songs that didn’t feel like they belonged on the Ours records. We are planning to release two Ours records in 2019, but I’m not exactly sure of the dates yet. The solo record will be a gift to anyone who has already pre-ordered the Ours record and will be available for everyone else to buy. Stay tuned for details and as always, remember I love you.

Thanks for this, Sippe!

I had totally forgotten that an Ours album was due any month now, so a few more months won't matter much in the grand scheme of things. Looking forward to some of the JG solo songs to tide us over until the new year!
