I like the idea of releasing things fast. That’s the funny thing about these fast times, things have gotten slower. To release a record now, you’ve got to have a big ramp up campaigns where you sit around for 6 months and then you get tired of the material then you’re supposed to go out there and play it live. The good thing about Uprise.fm, we could do in this studio a little session here today and if some magic came of it, then I could put it on the site and make it available very quickly. That’s exciting for me. I’m doing a show in New York in November with some great African artists and I’m excited about that night and should we record and film that night, it could turn up on Uprise for example. Otherwise, that might may just dissipate and never be enjoyed by people who weren’t there. I’m excited just thinking about doing these little specials wherever I go. I bump into special things wherever I go. To cement them and to have them made available quickly appeals to me right now. It’s an extension to what I said a minute ago about being excited about the stage, things happen fast, you have an audience there. The communication is a very real one. It’s sort of the opposite of huddling up in a studio for two years and looking at your belly button.
