November 10, 2017:
As mentioned before I’ve been working on some new music. Two new songs… ”Stockholm, You Have Let Me Down” and ”Strawberry Moon”, each being around ten minutes long and a new rendition of an older song. Originally I intended to release everything together as an EP along with a demo version of a previously unreleased song “Orca Now” that I wrote back in 2012. So four tracks in total. But since I work off and on on the songs I’m not sure when everything will be finished and ready. A Foghorn Lonesome release is never rushed. So I’ve decided to release the songs one by one as singles over time once they are ready. Two tracks might end up on the same release. At the moment it looks like “Strawberry Moon” and the mystery rendition song will be done first. Here is second demo sample of ”Strawberry Moon”. Previous sample deleted. It is a demo and doesn’t necessarily represent the final version. Everything is subject to change.

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.

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.
