Derek Webb is currently in the studio working on a follow up to last year’s The Ringing Bell. This time around he seems to be pushing the envelope even further with his music.
Here’s how his most recent email newsletter describes the new project:
It’s been over a year since Derek released his critically acclaimed The Ringing Bell, and he’s currently writing and recording his new album, which we hear is going to be titled Stockholm Syndrome. He’s collaborating with long time friend and former Caedmon’s Call bandmate Josh Moore on what is rumored to be a more experimental, electronic album.
Teasing with programmed and decidedly more ‘inorganic’ elements, Stockholm Syndrome is shaping up to be Derek’s most ambitious album to date.
Be on the lookout for a tentative May 2009 release.
