U.S. composer/multi-instrumentalist Chris Schlarb has just released a collection of 4 outtakes from his excellent 2013 album Psychic Temple II.
- A rough, early demo of All I Want Is Time with incomplete lyrics and chordal structure. This shows more R&B roots than the final album version.
- The Starry King Hears Laughter (Acoustic Guitar Version), which was recorded as background music for the Psychic Temple flexi-postcard. It is very similar to the song’s first rough demo.
- NO TSURAI take #3. Paul Masvidal and I recorded three takes, this one being the longest. For the album version I used take #2 but there were some beautiful moments here as well.
- The Starry King Hears Laughter (Jeremiah Cymerman Version). I knew the melody was perfect for his clarinet and I wanted to see where he would take it from there. A truly inspired, unique interpretation.
