One song has been successfully completed! However, I can't spoil all of the surprises that will come with this album, so I won't tell you what it is. I will say that it isn't one I mentioned in any of the previous updates, so sorry if you thought you could hear the cover song early.
I plan on wrapping up the beat box track this weekend in one straight recording, but the notation sheet still isn't finished yet. That won't take long, though, so no worries.
The cover song lyrics are currently being revised for the final time (Draft number 4 to be exact), at which point I'll have to decide how I'm going to get piano and string sound clips to build the rest of the song. (I have no access to either in real life, so the internet is my only hope. If you can help me out, I'd be super grateful.)
Concept art for the album cover is going very well, and should also be done this weekend. I'm in the process of finding somebody that can photoshop the image to add colors and make it look awesome. =D
Other than that, things are pretty much the same. I have this weekend completely free of sports, school, and other obligations, so I'll be able to work on it for the entire time. =)
Thirty eight days remain (for real this time),
PS: Approaching the nine hour mark for time spent on this album, and the bulk of the journey has yet to begin. Horray!
