Some may think Crossroads, Middletown is Fabien Polair's reaction to his previous album Circumstances of the Present World but it’s simply the work of a musician free to follow his moods and inspiration, wherever they may take him. Crossroads’ mix of pop and folk songs is surely contrasting with the themes and sounds of Circumstances, but the aim remains the same: write and record melodic songs anyone can relate to. With the addition of roots instruments like pedal steel, acoustic guitar, harmonica, piano, banjo, mellotron, accordeon, glockenspiel, rhodes or cello, Fabien Polair delivered an album accessible to everyone. Solo acoustic gigs are planned for 2008.
Songs from Crossroads, Middletown will be aired every Saturday morning for the next 8 weeks and on sunday 27 Jan
on German radio OS Radio

One week delay in the mastering of the album...supposed to happen on 6 Dec now...is the album going to be ready before Christmas? That was the plan...Oh by the way, the album is named Crossroads, Middletown, and here's the final tracklisting:
1. Settle Down 2. Shred Of Autumn 3. Tragi-Comic Girl 4. Everybody Knows 5. Caught In The Monotony 6. Teenage Years 7. Fallen Angels 8. Eternidad 9. People Move On 10. God Knows Why 11. Oklahoma #3 12. Early Morning Flight 13. A Thousand Harmonies 14. Voyage (To The Centre of Your Heart)
It's a mixture of new songs and old ones I'd never recorded properly before. The mood is plainly acoustic as planned. Thanks for staying tuned.
