I’m super type A and everybody knows it. A long time ago, I decided that whenever I write my autobiography, it’s going to be titled “Type A Stands For Amy.” So look for that in a Barnes and Noble near you in about 20 years.
Releasing new music brings out my type A-ness in its most monstrous form. There’s so much more to the process of releasing a song than most people are aware of. For example, six weeks before the song’s release date, it is sent off to Spotify and Apple Music for review, in hopes that it will be added to playlists. Then, two weeks before the release, the song is sent to a distributor, who makes sure the title, copyright, and credits are correct in the iTunes database. Not to mention, before all of this can be done, there’s an album cover shoot, graphic design meetings, and so on and so forth. I’m getting a headache just typing this.
So basically, you can’t just wake up one day and decide you want to release a song in five minutes.
I wanted so badly to put a song out in February, but life got in the way… big time. It’s been especially hard to hold this project back, because I’m so insanely proud of it, and I want all of you to have the opportunity to dance to it ASAP. But, at the end of the day, I have to believe that there is a reason for everything. I know that my record will be introduced to the world on the perfect date. I just have no idea what that date is.
We are all working towards and waiting for things that sometimes feel unattainable. Like waiting for that person to like you back. And waiting for high school to end. And waiting for someone to present you with an unexpected $10,000 check. (Okay, that last one might just be me.) Whether you’re type A or B or any other letter of the alphabet, let’s all try to hang in there together. insert sappy quote about patience here
