In a recent interview with Music Mayhem, Blue October frontman Justin Furstenfeld teased a forthcoming “Dark and Gloomy” Christmas album and the release of an acoustic, reimagined version of their seminal album, Foiled, and he says it gonna be “awesome.”
Furstenfeld detailed how he is staying proactive and getting creative during quarantine to still bring fans new content cause he’s home and what else is there to do but to create new content for fans.
“I am recording a Christmas album next,” Furstenfeld exclusively told Music Mayhem. “It’s gonna be dark and gloomy, it’s gonna sound like Cigarettes After Sex meets Red House Band. It’s gonna be saddest f-cking Christmas album you’ve ever heard. Like you’re damn right I’m gonna put a Christmas tree up in that studio and I’m gonna pretend that Santa Claus is on the mother f-cking way and I’m gonna do it.”
Further elaborating on what else is coming from the band, Furstenfeld explained that they are going to recreate their fourth studio album, Foiled, and that they’re going to record it “acoustically and reimagined” and that it’s “gonna be awesome.”
“I’m gonna go redo Foiled, the album with ‘Hate Me’ on it and I’m gonna record it acoustically and reimagined, it’s gonna be awesome, we’re gonna release that,” said Furstenfeld.
Furstenfeld then added that now is the perfect time for artists to be proactive and to think outside the box to make the most of their time at home, he said not only did Blue October just release their ‘Get Back Up’ Documentary but they also have their tenth studio album, This Is What I Live For, on the way. And the aforementioned reimagined album and Christmas album creation but he is also shooting a music video today (May 27) for their new song “Moving On,” which he said they are using a drone to film him singing as he jogs to practice social distancing.
