The new CD "I'm Still Here" is finally finished. It has been almost two years since the project began, but it is now being manufactured. It is the first Whiteboy Slim recording that contains acoustic tracks, but it also contains the eclectic electric stuff that everyone has come to expect from Whiteboy Slim. The rhythm tracks on this one were recorded live off-the-floor, giving it a very live feel. The instrumentation is stripped down to guitars, harp,and vocals, with no keys or horns this time round. It continues the balance of tradition and experimentation you have come to expect.
The official release date is May 31, but from now until then, you can buy it at a special pre-release price of $9.99 (plus shipping). When you get your (signed) CD you will also get an URL, a username, and a password that will give you two months of unlimited free downloads of mp3s of all four Whiteboy Slim CDs, as well as live recordings, videos, and other free goodies.
