Only a few mixes remain before the new album is ready for mastering. Jim Forrest (of Herkka and Forrest James) is currently mixing “Epic”, Esa Mikkola is mixing “Dig” and Lukas Drozd is putting the final touches on “…And When She Woke Up I Was Gone”. All mixes should be finished within two weeks.
I also plan to release alternative mixes of “Dig” and “She Fell Asleep With Her Headphones On”, as well as a remix of “From Red To Pitch Black”.
1. Nobody Knows
2. She Fell Asleep With Her Headphones On…
4. From Red To Pitch Black
6. …And When She Woke Up I Was Gone
7. Perfect Pose
The 4-track compilation of new mixes of my personal Pocketful favourites from the old days is now waiting to be mastered. Track list:
1. The Final Song
2. She Won’t Steal My Thoughts Tonight
3. When The Leaves Fell From The Trees
Both albums should be released around Christmas.
I am planning to release the new Pocketful album in September/October 2015. Almost all recording sessions are behind me now (some more bass and maybe a few guitars will be added within the next few weeks). The title of the album will be “Perfect Pose”. Here is the current track list and status for the different tracks:
Nobody Knows – completely finished!
From Red to Pitch Black – currently being mixed in Japan
Epic – everything except some bass guitar is done
Perfect Pose – mixing will start in a week or two
She Fell Asleep With Her Headphones On … – mixing is very close to finished
… And When She Woke Up I Was Gone – needs a bit more arranging
Dig – Some arrangement issues need to be solved.

Earlier today I recorded vocals for my cover of “Floating”, a song by Forrest James.
We have updated the “Pocketful Evergreens” collection with yet another rare demo. This time it’s a short, vocoder-based interlude – “There’s a Song That She’ll Never Sing”. It was written a couple of years ago as part of a longer song that never made it to any official release. Go to pocketful.bandcamp.com for your free download.
There is a lot of activity in the studio at the moment. Johan recorded guitar a few days ago, Jerker is working on several new songs and the side project Greg is beginning to take shape. For regular updates, follow us here:

Tonight I have done some mixing on “Black and Blue”, a new track by side project Greg, and “He Seems Ok”, which is an older song which I have decided to give a second chance.
