I would be happy with "Bridge Over Troubled Water", but I would LOVE to hear our guys sing "Hallelujah".... it would be so beautiful. :) But who am I kidding.... I would honestly listen to them sing the phone book... LOL

Thanks, Dottie! If the new album is available on the cruise, surely it's gotta be available at following concerts. I hope so!

@mama2josh23 - I had a thought about the "hymn-like" song earlier this month.....my guess is "Bridge Over Troubled Water." :)

WOW...when I checked Twitter that night, Ryan had just posted that he'd answer any questions about the album in the next 2 minutes, at which time I replied "WOW...NOT MUCH TIME LEFT, etc" Anyway, he stayed on until 12:30am, and I was the only one posting, so I did NOT know there were previous questions asked, so thanks for posting!

So..... there is a small part of me that is wondering if that his answer to this was actually a hidden answer:
Q. WOW...not much time left. How about title of ONE song??
A. Hallelujah, *finally* a bold, direct question! Yeah, I can't answer that.
Especially given this Q&A
Q. {fingers crossed} please be Amazing Grace, please be Amazing Grace (or a stripped down version of Up On the Roof)
A. No Amazing Grace, but there is a veeeeerrrry hymn-like song that will be featured.

Just a thought! I must admit that I would be beyond exciting to hear their version of "Hallelujah"

I'm apparently still learning how to use twitter, haha. Here are some questions and answers that I missed!

Q. Are there gonna be a lot of upbeat songs on your guys next LP?
A. Let's just say there are gonna be some ridiculously slamming tracks featured.

Q. What's your favourite song y'all have ever done?
A. On this album, my favorite is the one we sing on without instruments that goes like this... (humming)

Q. Name your favorite track (by name). ;)
A. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway, hands down.

Q. WOW...not much time left. How about title of ONE song??
A. Hallelujah, *finally* a bold, direct question! Yeah, I can't answer that.

Q. OK....how many songs? Is there a name to the album yet?
A. No name yet. We're the worst with naming albums. I'm gunning for "Wow! That's What I Call Mediocre Singing 2012"

Q. Do we have a rough guesstimate of when the new album could potentially be done?
A. It'll be done tomorrow night at 11 PM PST. That's when they kick us out. Release date TBA.

Q. Serious question. After tracking, does someone in the group mix the tracks?
A. No. We want it to sound good. Serious answer.

  • Ryan Answers Questions About The New Album

    For those of us sleeping late last night when Ryan tweeted he would answer questions about the new album, and for the non-tweeters, here are the questions and answers I gleaned from my twitter news-feed this morning:

    Q. Are there any songs on it that you've already sung in concert?
    A. That's an affirmative.

    Q. {fingers crossed} please be Amazing Grace, please be Amazing Grace (or a stripped down version of Up On the Roof)
    A. No Amazing Grace, but there is a veeeeerrrry hymn-like song that will be featured.

    Q. Is it (referring to the hymn-like song) an original song or one we may have heard somewhere else?
    A. Yes.

    Q. If you're still answering: any originals? Thanks!
    A. Maaaayyyybe.

    Q. How many songs (approximately) will be on this album?
    A. Shooting in the realm of 12-15.

    Q. Are there any songs on it that you've already sung in concert?
    A. That's an affirmative.

    Q. If not this album, is there a chance that Up On The Roof will ever be on an album? (please?!)
    A. It's on the first CD the group ever did at IU. It's out there somewhere...

    Q. Oooo...do @randystine and @charliemechling get to sing any actual words on this album?
    A. Indeed they do. It was really tedious getting them up to speed on how to read. Took forever. Those guys are the worst.

    Q. Excited for the new album! When do you think it will be available for purchase?
    A. I bet if you asked nicely on #snccruise, there may be some available then. But what do I know, I just sing where I'm told.

    All the Best,
    DottieK
