We have decided to expand the scope of the project into an album. We are currently working on additional songs to add to the project, and are very excited about the progress. We are taking our time to ensure that each song has the uniqueness we are striving to achieve, and yet keeping with the progressive pop/art rock theme of the music. Thanks for your continued patience on the release. It will be worth the wait!

We wanted to update you on the progress of our album project. Out of respect for the wonderful people of Ukraine and that region of Europe, we felt this was not a good time to release upbeat music when people were going through such difficult and heartbreaking times. We will wait till this awful situation resolves before proceeding with the release of the music. Having said that, we continue to put together the infrastructure for the music and Universe Records label, and are also working on more new, exciting music to fill in the downtime. We have an excellent song in the works currently that we think has great potential. We will also consider other songs as time and schedules permit, to expand the scope of the record.

Concerning the timing of the release of our album… We have been very busy setting up an extensive plan for the record, including a publicist for PR, radio, reviews, interviews, etc. Also, we have made decisions on manufacturing, social media, distribution, video, etc. Lots to this folks! But our structured, methodical plan will result in a great record with interesting and professional aspects, radio airplay, reviews, and corporate licensing (more on that soon). In the meantime, let’s fly to the sun….spring is coming! Good luck to you all and please check back soon.

Fly To The Sun has been very busy working on the songs for the new album. We will take our time so the production is something we can all be proud of. It is sounding great. Our UK production studio owned by Andrew Giddings has been moving to a new location, so you can imagine moving millions of miles of wire and making sure they are all plugged into the right places! We will have a further update soon. Thanks so much for tuning in…

The Fly To The Sun project is advancing quickly now. The website and associated SEO functions have entered a new phase, with new highly-skilled personnel being added to the team to give the website maximum visibility. The songs are progressing nicely with the hard work of keyboardist/producer Andrew Giddings and guitarist Jennifer Batten adding significant expertise to the songs. There will also be inroads to corporate agreements for the songs, which will fuel funding for radio promotion and publicity for the songs. Stay tuned. A lot happening now…
