Update on James Husband's upcoming record

A few weeks ago Jamey posted a 6 minute long video of his studio progress on facebook but it took me a while to download, upload and share it. It focuses on the recording process but if you're dying to hear a few new tunes from Jamey, you'll find them. The new record doesn't have a title yet but it is penciled in for a late August release on No More Fake Labels.
