There are 8 songs. On side 1. Happy Isles, Colour of Your Skin and Alba.
On Side 2: Ting Tong, Hamilton Dome, Whero, Green Man and Diamond Friday is the full track listing.
Stay tuned for release timetable for the music and the vinyl. If you are already on the mail list we will know more about release timetable soon. We are thinking it should be ready in the first or second week of Feb but hoping it is sooner.
We are also talking with some record stores which specialise in vinyl and where you can go to see and hear the physical album. The full price is $40 but fine tuning all the logistics now.
