We’ve see a lot of messages about Vagabonds not being on Spotify. We don’t own or administer that master since we recorded it on a label and ownership transferred a few times, so we can’t do anything about it outside of recording our own new master and releasing that. It’s still on Apple Music I guess. This is a good reason to thank everyone who has supported us independently for these last seven years. The masters for Phoenix, What Was Done, Vol. 1: A Decade Revisited, Albatross: Live in Seattle, and How to Be Human are all safely in our care, thanks to you. 🙏

Seven years late, but I finally fixed the cover art for Phoenix online. The original upload compressed weird, making it more teal. It now matches the physical copies. I then counted how many original tracks we've released as The Classic Crime. The number is 75 (not counting acoustic versions or live recordings). 15 years as a band, and the sum total output is 75 recordings. 5 songs per year. It seems like a low number in hindsight, and recognizing this really makes this next batch I'm writing feel more important (pressure). I then listened to our album Vagabonds, which is 9 years old this month. I winced, laughed, elated, and even welled up with some tears. It's the weirdest mixture of embarrassment and pride, feeling like I didn't know enough back then, but how that also helped me. The lyrical themes on Vagabonds were about getting older, accumulating life lessons and distilling them into metaphors about gratitude and living simply. I was 26. Granted, we'd seen a lot by that age, and some of that wisdom is precocious, but I also can't help but think "You're in for some more storms, kid." Anyways, just wanted to share some thoughts as I was feeling nostalgic. Back to work. Cheers, Matt
