Album release Date

November 13th, 2013 by Fitz, Music Tips & other Gear, 0 Comments

The album is pretty much wrapped up and I’ve settled on a January 10th release date. Coincidentally, I’m also giving a presentation at work on that day. I wonder if they’ll mind if I close with a Citizen Fitz sales pitch? Hmm…

Anyhow, I chose this date after scouring the Web to see what was the agreed upon “best time” for an indie artist to release a recording. The consensus seems to be the first month of the year. It’s before the big glut of summer releases, this giving the album a better chance of being reviewed, and makes the record seem “new” for the whole year. A new album at the beginning of each year and an EP in the fall seems to be the popular strategy.
