October 13, 2017:
The show at PSB in November is cancelled. I have been very ill lately and a mutual decision was made within the band on October 1 that it is best to cancel the show as we feel that there is a possibility that I won’t be well enough by November. I have been working on some new music. At the moment it is becoming an EP. Details below. As always a Foghorn Lonesome release is never rushed. So there is no release date. A sample of the EP’s second track ”Strawberry Moon” is available on SoundCloud and YouTube. As per usual I tend to be generous when it comes to the length of a ”sample”. The digital music distribution service that we use recommended that this EP release has a ”Parental Advisory Explicit Lyrics” label on it due to some of the lyrical content. This is only a demo and not a fully mixed version of the song and does not necessarily represent the final version. Everything is subject to change. – Eric

The new song, “Like A Storm“, is now available on Spotify, iTunes, Bandcamp, Amazon, Google Play, SoundCloud and Deezer. There is an issue with the pricing of the song on iTunes…

When I uploaded the track I uploaded it as a ”single release” on the music aggregator’s website which is a digital music distribution service between the artist and the big music platforms such as Spotify, iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, Tidal and Deezer. It’s a stand-alone release… a single. On Spotify and iTunes it shows up as an EP which is incorrect. It should be under ”single”. The price on iTunes is also incorrect. It has the price of an EP or a full album. In other words the price is too high. The price on Google Play and Amazon is correct which is what one song usually costs there. Deezer only offers streaming and the song is correctly marked as a single.

I have been in touch with the aggregator and Apple. The cause for this seems to be that all these music platforms have their own algorithm and have interpreted the song file differently. Spotify and Apple decided it was an EP most likely due to the song being 14 minutes long. Apple says this is not the case but the aggregator says it is. Neither the aggregator or Apple “can” do anything to correct this error. Everything points towards Apple’s and Spotify’s algorithm being incorrect by basing the song on its length and not on the fact that it was uploaded as a “single release”.

So at the moment the type of release (EP) of the song on Spotify and iTunes is incorrect as well as the price on iTunes. I’m not happy about this but it’s out of my control. I have done what I can to correct this. It’s very unfortunate since iTunes is a popular place to buy music. As a new band iTunes is very vital in terms of digital sales.

So I recommend to those interested in purchasing the song to do so at Bandcamp or Google Play. The song is also available for streaming on Bandcamp and YouTube. I can no longer recommend SoundCloud due to its poor audio quality.

New song, “Like A Storm“, now online! It is a stand-alone single release and is not a part of the debut album that was released in March 2016. As of this post the track is available on Bandcamp, YouTube and SoundCloud. Free MP3 download on SoundCloud for a limited time only! The track is also available for sale on Bandcamp. All purchases are very much appreciated. SoundCloud is not recommended for streaming due to poor audio quality. For best quality via streaming Bandcamp is recommended. YouTube also provides accurate audio quality. Like A Storm will soon be available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and Amazon.

Foghorn Lonesome’s debut album is since March 2016 out on several platforms… Spotify, iTunes, Bandcamp, Amazon, Google Play, SoundCloud and YouTube.

The track order on all platforms except for Bandcamp, SoundCloud and YouTube is incorrect. Track 4 and 5 are in reverse order. Their fault. Not mine. I’ve been compensated for it. Thank you for your support.
