My new album is out today. Neverlove. Originally, it was going to be called Nomenclature. I like the sound of that word. You can see the original artwork below. It was done by my friend Madelline. You can see more of her amazing artwork here:
There are 13 songs on the album. 25 were recorded. It was quite difficult to cut 12 songs. Some could have easily made the album. Even the title track, “Neverlove” was cut. Others were more obvious cuts. A few songs I recorded were very angry. I’m not sure those ones will ever be heard by anyone. Maybe I’ll perform one of them at a show one day when I can apologize ahead of time. There’s also a song based on a Marilyn Monroe poem that is just WAY too dark. That one is called “Ugly Bridge”. You can hear that one on the deluxe version of the album, which can be ordered on iTunes. You’ll also get two other songs - one called “Fairytales” and another called “NSFW Music Video”.

Again, apologies for the delay on the vinyl for those of you who pre-ordered it. If that’s you, direct message me here. I have something for you. I’ll get it to you as fast as I can. My next two days will be a bit busy with my release shows in Toronto and New York. But I will hook you up. Bear with me.
By the way, if you are in Toronto, come on by the Soundscapes record store tonight. I’ll be performing a few songs.
For those of you who buy the album on CD today, you’ll find lyrics printed in the booklet. Unfortunately, the lyrics printed there are filled with mistakes. The complete error-free album lyrics have been posted on my website. Check here later today: http://buck65.com/buck/
I started working on the material for this album three years ago. It’s such a relief to finally have it out in the world. Thanks for your patience. Thanks to all of the talented musical minds who helped make it. Thanks and foreverlove to my ex-wife Emily for inspiring it, for being my first listener and for the support. Thanks to Joëlle - my partner in Bike For Three! for the beautiful artwork. Thanks to my whole team for making it happen and putting the plan together.
A quick heads up - I’ll be doing a Reddit AMA on Wednesday at 1:00 PM (EDT). Come hang out!
I look forward to seeing you all in the coming months as I make my way around the world. If I don’t see you in October or November, I will be seeing you in the new year. I’m committed to getting everywhere! I really don’t want to leave anyone out. Come say hello and get a hug. I give good ones.
See you soon.
