It’s here! Don’t Say We’re Over has been officially released this week and is now available on Spotify and other online streaming services! Of course it is also still available on BandCamp since that’s where we have made our complete (back) catalogue available.
The official album release was done trough Amuse. We are considering re-releasing some older albums trough Amuse also, making them available (again) to the public trough services like Spotify and Amazon Music. Our experiences with DistroKid were fine so far but didn’t turn out to be successful in terms of sales. So we’re giving Amuse a try for distribution! So far, so good! Amuse has delivered the album to all platforms we’ve opted for and all went perfectly well.
The only thing we ask in return is your email address, so we can send you updates about the projects and albums. Don’t want to receive email updates? Donate a small fee and we won’t bother you!
WHY DID WE DO THIS?!
You might wonder why we are now offering all music as free downloads. The reason for this is simple: over the years we’ve spend a lot of time and effort in recording music. Publishing it. On Spotify, for example, this resulted in well over 33,000 plays/streams. We got paid US$ 1.35 for those 33,000 streams. That’s what we consider a total and complete insult. So, since they’re giving it away – why don’t we? And get something in return: a way to get in touch with the people listening to our songs.
We will continue to make singles, albums and EP’s and make them available on commercial platforms (since they will put them on Spotify, iTunes and so on). But on our BandCamp page you can get them for free. Except for the most recent publication. So, the back catalog, as of now, will be free. Forever. As soon as we publish something new, it will be for sale and the previous single, album or EP will be set to “free download” and so on.
I “grew up in church” (Reformed Church) and love these old hymn’s. I’m still a believer. Though some of my opinions have changed over the years. I’ve left the church of my youth and am visiting another church (Baptist) these days after wandering trough some different directions.
In Baptist chruches they play and sing more modern songs these days, you know “worship”-stuff. Anyway – I think these old hymns still are great. Glad we still sting them now and than. But you won’t hear my version in church I’m afraid!
I’ve ”reworked” this one into a more up-tempo song with drums, guitar and bass. It’s available at Audiomack and SoundCloud, for free. It’s almost Christmas right so it’s good to hand out a gift!
