Ok so Mubla 2.0 has officially started and after a busy couple of weeks working out how to upload podcasts, run a blog, plan and implement one of the most ambitious projects possible we are finally ready to get going with some real Mubla 2.0 content! Over the next few weeks we are going to feature some of the new songs and write a series of blogs relating to them. This will include things like a discussion on the lyrics, videos showing us in the studio or at home working on the song as well as blogs on things like guide vocals, backing vocals, click tracks and lots of other things that go on in the studio that the average music fan won’t have been aware of until now.
As the title suggests we are going to start with Can’t Help Me Now which if you haven’t already listened to/downloaded then you can do right from this blog post with just a single click. The first blog will come later this evening from myself and I’m going to be talking about the lyrics of the song, where they came from, how they might change and for what reasons. I’ll be discussing the concept of integrity when writing lyrics, a topic already discussed elsewhere numerous times but nevertheless highly relevant when it comes to such an open project as Mubla 2.0. In conjunction with this I’ll discuss how the idea of being commercial in songwriting may or may not fit in with Mubla 2.0 – music made in front of you.
So that’s what you can look forward to later today but that’s not where the discussion on this song will stop as both myself and Kal will be posting more blogs and videos over the next couple of days so just keep checking back and comment, comment, comment! We really want to hear your thoughts!
