Sleeper Arrives August 14

I’m pleased to announce that Secret Friend’s second album arrives August 14. Entitled Sleeper, the album features guest artists including Bradley Dean Whyte, Kelly Jones, Linus of Hollywood, Steve Eggers, Willie Wisely and Wyatt Funderburk.

Sleeper retains the acoustic guitars, vocal harmonies, and bouncy pop melodies found on Time Machine, then envelopes those with vibrant and psychedelic Electronica arrangements and production. Inspired by the Peruvian rain forest, and produced entirely in northern Thailand, Sleeper is a concept album which takes you on a transcendental journey through time and space.

Music videos will also accompany every track on the album, commissioned from talented animators and filmmakers from around the globe. Three videos have been released already on our YouTube and Vimeo channels.

Sleeper will be available from August 14 at all the usual online download and streaming sites, and will simultaneously be released as a super deluxe limited edition CD – only 100 copies will ever be issued. More details about that will be announced shortly.

Track list:

  1. Blue Sky [ft. Kelly Jones]
  2. Something’s Happening [ft. Linus of Hollywood]
  3. Anyway How
  4. Any Day Now [ft. Steve Eggers]
  5. I Don’t Know You [ft. Wyatt Funderburk]
  6. Diving In a Sea of Light [ft. Linus of Hollywood + Willie Wisely]
  7. Orbital Velocity
  8. And Ever [ft. Willie Wisely]
  9. Nobody Listens [ft. Bradley Dean Whyte]
  10. Do You? [ft. Willie Wisely]

West End Girls

Several months ago I had the exciting opportunity to record a track for Andrew Curry’s compilation “Here Comes The Reign Again: The Second British Invasion“. Together with vocalist Bradley Dean Whyte we created a contemporary and rather trippy rendition of Pet Shop Boys’ “West End Girls”. Click on the play icon over on the left to hear it now.

This album was just released today on BandCamp and I highly recommend you check it out and pick up a copy for yourself. It’s a double CD and you’ll hear heaps of outstanding interpretations of classic British 80’s pop hits by many notable indie musicians. I’m super thrilled we get to be on the same album as all these guys.

EXTRA POINTS: There are five musical references to classic synthesizer lines hidden within our track. Can you spot them all?

Orbital Velocity

Orbital Velocity is the first track from Secret Friend’s second album, Sleeper, which will be released August 2015.

Welcome Back

This is the first post on the new website, welcome. And there’s a bit of news to report.

First of all: about the new website. Everything has been redesigned and polished. Clean slate – all the old content from the previous site is gone now. It was just easier. There is a new ‘fox’ logo which you’ll soon see everywhere you find Secret Friend’s music. Also, not a big deal but there is a new domain name as well.

But the real news is that there will be a new Secret Friend album arriving early 2015. And even before then, individual tracks from the upcoming album will be released, and some new music videos too. In fact, if you look around carefully, you may just find a sneak preview of one of those tracks here on this new website, but only for a very limited time.

During the next few weeks and months I’ll also be sharing some interesting stories about the new album and Secret Friend’s new musical direction.
