I’m back from Nashville you guys!

And let me tell you…

The only thing better about being home makingofxmashits3
Is…

BEING HOME WITH A COPY OF YOUR BRAND NEW CHRISTMAS ALBUM UNDER YOUR ARM!!
(apologies if your copy smells like BO)

That’s right you guys

The album IS DONE!

Dunzo..finito, fini, fertig!

And for my Portugese buds….ACABADO!!!

It’s been sent off to the manufacturers today and online digital sellers

And is going to be ready CRAZY SOON!

But can I just take a minute to tell you

For this kid from Kalgoorlie

Getting to travel to Nashville to record an album I’ve wanted to do for years

With some of the best players in the world – no seriously these guys ARE

Think of some of the biggest names in music right now – and that’s who this crew plays with

They probably want to keep their jobs, so we won’t advertise that they’ve moonlighted on the latest JENNY TALIA album…shhhhhh!

Such major talent playing on my songs, is cooler than cool to me

And makes the whole thing just that much more funny

Getting to do that, has been better than fan-fucking-tastic

But the bestest bit?

Is going to be when you all get to hear it

Especially when I get to do these new songs live

The whole experience has got me smiling even BIGGER than I normally do

And that’s saying something

I might need to check for lipstick on my ears…

CHRISTMASHITS album artwork

What started out as an arty-fatty attempt to slowly reveal the artwork for the new album

Turned into a ‘fuckit-I-don’t-have-the-patience-for-this’ can I just show it all already??

Mind you, I’m also someone that stands in front of the microwave telling it to hurry up

Waiting is something I really suck at

The idea was to have it turn out all cool and like, wow how’d you do that?

Reveal the artwork one square at a time – I know, how idea-sy am I?

But Instagram only likes squares and some of my squares were rectangles so bite me Instagram.

(yes the time on this screen shot says 6:02am. I wet the bed)

The album is in it’s FINAL stages of being ready

SO FUCKING EXCITED ABOUT THIS ONE YOU GUYS

It will be available so soon, you can almost TASTE IT.

I’m pretty sure it tastes like sweat and Christmas pudding.

Especially if that Christmas pudding had a bottle of red wine in it.

Drum roll…… TA-DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

I give you…..the album cover for the soon-to-be-released CHRISTMASHITS

As always, the fabulously talented Greg Taylor in Western Australia is the man behind the graphics.

I give him my ideas as stick-figure drawings

And he gives me back this

He’s either very talented or an avid LSD user

Either way, I’m so grateful to once again have his skills on this project – thanks GT!!

Watch this space, and I’ll let you guys know the SECOND the album is available!

I need you to have the words learnt good ‘n proper by the time Silly Season rolls around

This year’s family gatherings are shaping up to be EXTRA xrated SPECIAL!
