La Belle Dame Sans Merci

‘Songs Of Fear And Agony’, the album I’m recording, is a very personal project. I wouldn’t call it autobiographical, but there are many, many elements that come directly from my own life.

That was not my plan, though. I love songs based on stories about specific characters, and I wrote several of them during the last two years. Unfortunately, there was no space for them in my first collection of songs.

What will happen to them?

Well, that’s simple: they will have a place in my next album. I’m already working on it. It does not have a real title, so I just call it ‘Devilish Cabaret’.

As I already said, I have a bunch of songs which are (more or less) ready, but I’m also writing some new lyrics. I finished one yesterday: It’s called ‘La Belle Dame Sans Merci’. I’m pretty happy about it, although not completely satisfied.

I’ll work on it, again, later...

Thanks for reading!
