My secret hope is for the release to be without any announcement of the release date beforehand so that I can go straight from anticipation to gratification without that amped up anticipation in between...
I have a different version of that -- missed it, so only just listening now. Also like a surprise thing really that way.
Missed almost everything that's happening this year in music -- really late to the party for album releases of other favourite musicians too (cause pandemic).
Think it might overall actually be a great year in music releases even though obviously not good at all for musicians overall!!!
And the rest .... sigh, so no more. So: Thanks to all the musicians for making it better to get through (world isn't really any different right now anyway from before, just super obvious). And Owen obviously thanks for wonderful new album. In Darkness - wow.
