As much as I look forward to whatever he does (film/tv/stage) I think at the moment I'm mostly hankering for an album.

It's kind of logical. He already did film/tv/stage. An album is quite the only thing he hasn't done yet :amused

I knew this was why he was quiet this year.  Our Energizer Bunny always is working on something, even if he's doing it quietly behind closed doors, ready to announce at the last minute!

You lucky Northern Californians can listen to some of the songs of his album!   I'm sure he will perform at other cities in the future, but this is special! 

Yea Darren!  Way to go!   You sneaky ninja, you!  applause :bravo clapping hands :guitar jamming


dusty, Lilikoilluv, Lin, Jeremy, blaykee, DaisiesAndLilies, Tash, springbay!!!  You guys, this is HUGE news!

Hi dusty!   Yes, finally!   Yes, this is seriously, dramatically, ecstatically exciting news!!!   I know you have been waiting for such a long time, and I have too.  And I know Lilikoiluv and blaykee have too! 

I remember our discussion about what direction Darren's debut album will go into.   Do I remember correctly (if I don't, please correct me), but you want wanted rock?   And I want a little bit of everything (pop, rock, singer-songwriter (folksy), soul, but I doubt that will  happen.     But maybe a few different genres--pop, rock, and ballad/folksy. 

It would be great to have Stutter on it.  I wonder if that will happen.    Fingers (and toes-can you do that? ha!  and arms and legs) crossed that he has Stutter on it.

I was reluctant to buy tickets. I just spent some $ on two Hedwig shows.  But it kept eating at me.  And finally, I called my husband and the sweetie pie urged me to buy tickets.  But that's it!  I'm all spent out for the next 2 years!  (Except of course for buying the album!)    DUSTY, I'M GOING TO SEE DARREN IN SF ON NOVEMBER 30!! :very happy clapping hands

I wonder now if the haircut was Darren's way of letting us know that the "time has come" to announce another big mile stone in his life:  His debut album!

What do you guys think?

I would normally be skeptical about the wording and whether it really means that he's releasing anything anytime soon, but he's been dropping some other hints recently, so I'm inclined to believe it's really happening this time. :fingers crossed

YAY POPPY!!  celebration dance! It seems to be a pretty small venue, so it's good to know that we're going to have our very own spy there!   :cheeky thumbs up

I'm so fortunate to go, Lin.  I wish I could bring all of you!  I can't promise I will record anything.  Sorry, but I'm awful at doing things like that.  But I will report back to the best of my abilities!

Shhh, Poppy. You know you want to:

No, I understand! I'm just glad you get to go and I'm looking forward to reading your report.

Lin, you are hilarious!   Thanks for understanding.  :happy face  Hopefully, there will be others who are more skilled in the art of being sneaky, who will post audios.  :fingers crossed

It's interesting that there is no big announcement.   I wonder why that is.  He's deciding to be low-key about this and the announcement is via the news about his performance at Feinstein's at the Nikko. 

Then again, Darren does like to lay low when it comes to announcements.   He's modest in that way.  :happy face

So I saw this on dailydarrennews:

redheadgleek wrote:FYI: somebody in line asked him about this and he seemed very shocked about the “upcoming album.” Both he and his manager (i think that’s who she is) both denied that there was a new album and stated that would be clarifying this with the venue.

-redheadgleek
via dailydarrennews






I hope this is not true.  I just spoke on the phone with the general manager of the club (Feinstein's at Nikko), and he told me that Darren's camp told their club that Darren would be playing a selection of songs from his upcoming album, and that the club would not have had that info in their press release if it was not given to them by Darren's camp.  He said he had no new info.   It is confusing what this fan is reporting Darren said to her/him.  But for now, I am going to assume that the press release is correct, until I hear confirmation from more sources.

Ok, Feinstein's at Nikko amended their press release and removed the part about a selection of songs from his upcoming album.

Yay! I am so happy for you! You're going to be one of the first few people getting to hear brand new DC songs! Very exciting! We'll be expecting a full report! Including details of new haircut, how many times he swears, and of course how amazing the new songs are on a scale from great to Darrentastic. Btw, your husband is pure awesomeness!

As for genre, yes I'm more of a rock chick. I'm hoping for an Indie/80s alternative vibe. It shall be interesting to see what he'll produce. And yes, it would be amazeballs if Stutter was included. Maybe as a bonus track?

I'm also wondering if he's with a label. If Tim Davis (from Glee) is working with him, wouldn't that suggest he's doing this independently? Otherwise wouldn't the label provide him with producers/vocal coaching or whatever it is Tim is doing?
