A little over 24 hours before I release The Mask. The past 48 hours has been me cleaning up any rough edges, and also testing out a few ideas to see if a last minute song will make the cut. But for the most part, the album is complete.
I just got back from Starbucks, and now I’m building out a to-do list for all the last minute things needed to be done. It’s like packing for a big trip: no matter how much you plan for the departure, those final hours always come with tons of empty check boxes.
In a few hours, I’ll be at the dentist, unfortunately getting two root canals. Some time this afternoon, when the pain settles, I’ll get back to work and finish up the album.
