Neil Peart site update: BIG new album news

[NEWS, WEATHER, and SPORTS - December 8, 2006]

UPDATE - 12/15@12:35PM: Power Windows is reporting that the latest Atlantic release schedule includes the new Rush album on its list of tentative April releases.

I've been MIA all day and just noticed that Neil Peart finally updated the News section of his website. He speaks mostly about the new album and has a lot to say as usual. Basically he confirmed a lot of what we knew already and also gave us the juicy details. Yes - Nick Raskulinecz was/is the co-producer and Rich Chycki was indeed brought in for engineer duties. After some pre-production at a Toronto studio, in November they moved the operation to Allaire Studios in New York's Catskill Mountains for the "serious" recording. To say it went well is a gross understatement. The album should be finished ahead of schedule by the end of the year and final mixing should occur early in the New Year. There's really too much cool stuff to try and summarize it - so just read it yourself. :) I may dissect it some more later - and feel free to do some dissecting of your own in the comments. This quote from Neil pretty much sums it up though: I have never enjoyed the recording process so much, nor been so satisfied with the results. Wow.
