Those of you following me on social networking sites Facebook and Twitter may already have heard that I’ve been locked away, toiling over an entire re-brand of my back catalogue.
Well, feast your eyes my friends, the time is now…
‘In My Hands’ CD – £5.00
‘The Boy In Brown’ CD – £5.00
‘Electronic Blood’ CD – £5.00
‘Notebook’ CD – £5.00
‘By The Sea’ CD – £5.00
You can click the album covers above to go to each album page, where a larger image of the new relevant artwork is available
The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed there are Add to Cart buttons for all the albums. That’s because, where previously only In My Hands and The Boy In Brown were available on CD, my first 3 albums are now also available!
To celebrate, I’ve added a whole range of CD Bundle Deals on the Buy page.
The Bundles are explained below in this handy video…
I can’t stress enough: if you do decide to purchase a CD Bundle Deal, please use the relevant CD Bundle Deal Add to Cart button on the Buy page.
Don’t just use the individual Add to Cart buttons for each album, because you’ll be charged £5 each time – It’ll show up in your shopping cart, so you’ll know what you’re getting
Once you go to the checkout with your CD Bundle Deal, you can specify which albums you want, and in what quantity, by leaving a note to the seller – me!
Multiple posts only days apart? How very unlike me.
However, finding out you’re album has been named by Jock Rock as one of the top 25 albums of the year warrants shouting about, does it not?
‘In My Hands’ has been placed no.6 out of 25!
Why not have a listen to the record, see what the fuss is about, and maybe even download or buy it
Not to sound like a complete dick, but this really is a great honour as it’s been an amazing year for Scottish music as you can tell by the host of fantastic artists that make up the rest of the 25 albums.
Jock Rock’s author, Steve McHugh (who also happens to edit Is This Music?from which ‘In My Hands’ got a 4 out of 5 star rating!), has always got his finger right on the pulse of the best Scottish music and the blog is a fantastic place to hear new stuff.
A massive thank you to Steve and Jock Rock, and again, a brazen laugh in the face of how in the hell I’ll top this in 2012!
I was very pleasantly surprised yesterday evening to hear that one of my favourite blogs, Scots Whay Hae, had named my track ‘Interrupt Me’ from In My Hands as one of their top 5 tracks of 2011!
Here’s what Scots Whay Hae author, Alistair Braidwood said:
“One of my favourite new discoveries this year was Arran Arctic who released his latest album In My Hands in Spring. I was delighted to find that there was a significant back catalogue to explore. This track is the beautiful Interrupt Me, and if you listen to it on You Tube there is a huge clue as to why this appeals. On the right of the page are over ten recommendations for Mark Kozelek songs. Kozelek is one of my favourite singer/songwriters of all time, but Arran Arctic is my latest flame and deserves such comparisons. This is ruddy gorgeous“
I’m really chuffed that this particular blog has taken such a shine to my work because Scots Whay Hae is one of my favourite blogs, full of intelligent, thoughtful and insightful articles.
They also put together a regular podcast featuring top notch Scottish guests, such as Alan Bissett (whose novel ‘Boyracers’ I’ve just finished and ‘Pack Men’ I’ve just started).
So a huge thank you to Alistair and Scots Whay Hae, I hope I can live up to this humbling honour in 2012!
