teve Newman is a cagy veteran, like people such as Stan Bush, Jim Jamison etc, all these guys can play this style of music in they’re dreams and Newman has had a nice career in the genre for a while now. Although this time around the songs are more flat in structures….
I just try to be as honest as possible and sing what I feel after I’ve put myself in the “mindset of the song”. Then when it comes down to the final touches, at least for this album, I weighed in Pelle’s and Daniel’s wishes too. So the title track, for instance, has me singing it slightly more aggressively than I personally wanted it. I wanted to sing it just like I sang the last chorus.
Yes, Brent plays every instrument on the entire album including all vocals too. One advantage of doing things this way for the rare few that are skilled enough is that there’s nobody to get in the way of your vision of the sound you want to create, which gave Brent a blank canvas to shape in any way he saw fit.
