This week has been a bit crazy with the launch of the Grass Mud Horse Christmas single, which by the way is ALSO our debut single. There is a lot to take care of and to be perfectly honest it should’ve been done a month or two ago in order to release it properly. Time restrictions aside we decided to go release it anyway but with well managed expectations.
I’m viewing this release as a learning opportunity and the reality is we have to start somewhere. All that being said I actually think it’s a very strong song, and so far I’m getting very favourable reactions!
My only goals for this single are firstly to get it all done properly, including the logistics of registering with PRO’s, and having all of that handled properly. My big goal however was to get at least ONE blog/zine etc to write about the single….even if it’s just a social media post…and that’s been achieved! A few Celtic Punk Blogs have either posted links to the single or written short blurbs about it. A podcast will feature us in their post-christmas hangover special, and another has written a short article about the band. At this point it’s all bonus really, so I’m quite happy about that.
My current focus on this single is getting control of all our artist pages, spotify, Apple music, youtube etc etc. Also I’m working on spotify playlists which I’ve discovered is something I should be doing a week in advance of a release in the future. Anyway here’s a link so you can hear the single
