Last-minute changes

It is now a matter of days before the Airship album becomes available for pre-order. At the last minute, I have decided to make changes to the tracklist. Nothing major, just changes to three track titles to help refine the narrative of the album.

“The View From Above” becomes “Silently You Sail”

The biggest change was to the title of track five, “The View From Above”. When I paradoxically added lyrics describing a view of the airship from below, I faced a dilemma: do I change the lyrics or the track title? I decided on the latter. “The View From Above” is now titled “Silently You Sail”, after the first line from the lyrics.

“Return” becomes “Destination”

The next change was to the title of “Return”, the last track on the album. Originally, this track described the return leg of a round trip flight. But in the light of “Silently You Sail”, it became clear that I was actually describing the conclusion of a voyage. It made sense to change “Return” to the more appropriate “Destination”.

“In the Hangar” becomes “Hangar”

The final change was the least significant, but I wrestled with it for over a month! I removed “in the” from “In the Hangar”, the title of track one. It’s unforgivably overscrupulous, but I think you will agree that it looks neater!

The revised tracklist

  1. Hangar
  2. A Good Day For Flying
  3. Airship
  4. Giant in the Sky
  5. Silently You Sail
  6. Destination

The album will be available for pre-order this Sunday (25 September 2016). I am beyond excited!
