New single “When It’s Time to Go” out 4.15.2019

“The ice she knows when it’s time to go, but I don’t…”

My new single comes out April 15th. I’ve been working on it for over a year, and actually much longer. The seed of this song began back in 2011 when I was touring on the east coast of the USA. It was early spring, and as I drove south from Maine, the snow and ice quickly disappeared, each mile tracking one more degree towards warmer weather and spring revival. I thought then about how the natural world clocks itself so closely to seasonal rhythms, how when it’s time, the ice simply goes, it doesn’t hang on. I sang a little line of lyric into my iphone voice memos that day. It would take seven years for the idea to find its home in this song, finally.

“When It’s Time to Go” was built from scratch in my home studio and my co-producer, engineer, and band, helped me translate my ideas onto a bigger canvas at The Sonic Temple Studio. Layers of piano, delayed electric guitars, and heavily fuzzed bass, make this track sound and feel like a moving glacier: heavy and slow, but absolutely unstoppable.

I’m so proud of the work we’ve made and I can’t wait for you to hear it. Check carmelmikol.com and all the places you listen to music on April 15th to hear it! The complete EP will be released later this summer.

Preorder “Daughter of a Working Man” today

At long last, my new album “Daughter of a Working Man” is ready for you. Starting today, you can Preorder it at PLEDGEMUSIC.COM and get exclusive access to limited edition hardcopy CD’s and some great extras. It will be available everywhere May 1st, but when you preorder it, you get it sooner.

Made over the course of three years, in two studios, with the help of Producer, Jon Landry, a couple sound engineers, a great band, a gang of guest vocalists, and strings by the Rhapsody Quintet, “Daughter of a Working Man” is a folk record dressed up in strings, electronic effects, and textured vocals. It’s an elegy and a victory album. It faces loss with strength and resolve, but never shies away from the dark. True to the lyric-driven style of all my work, the songs on this album swing between deeply personal stories and broader issues of  social inequality and injustice.

Thank you for your support. I hope you hear the life, love, and care with which this album was created. Enjoy!
