by Zack Zarrillo - May 21, 2012

The Ready Set’s new single, “Give Me Your Hand (Best Song Ever)” is streaming in full here. Check out what Jordan Witzigreuter had to say about his next album as well below by clicking “Read More.”

How far along are you with this new record? It seems like the process thus far has been sporadic.
JORDAN WITZIGREUTER:
I would say it’s probably a third of the way done, it’s hard to really judge at this point. I have about 25 songs written and a bunch more I’ve been working on this week, but I’m just gonna keep writing for the majority of the summer, then narrow it down to the best 12 to 15 songs. It has been sporadic; there’s been a lot of flying out to California on off time and writing new tracks, and doing new tracks on the bus or in airports so it’s never really been like a set amount of time to just go into the studio and work on the album—just a day here and a day there. It’s kind of fun that way, but definitely busy.

What do you think are the advantages and disadvantages of recording in that fashion as opposed to a more traditional approach?
I think an advantage would be you get a day or two to work on a song then weeks to think about it, come back to it, then maybe have a whole new perspective on it. Whereas if you’re in the studio every day doing things over and over again, you can kind of trick yourself into thinking things are bad or good. You hear something so many times and you start to get used to it. The cool thing about the way I do stuff is if something inspires me, I can just sit down at my computer and this little keyboard I travel with and do a really quick demo to get the idea across.

So I’m guessing there’s no title or release date yet for the album.
I’m gonna guess early fall, but those kinds of things always get moved. I usually make plans and find out that three weeks before something gets changed. I’m hoping for fall, but we’ll see how long until I’m happy with the end result.
