Take from Jules Cohen Indie Artist Spotlight for GC.

JC: A new album is on its way. This is your 4th correct?
JV: Yes, and it's titled "Electric Midnight." The reason for the name is that most of my recording on this was done in the middle of the night. I'm a night person.
JV: It has more rocking type songs than "3," which was recorded during a very difficult, sad phase of my life; I was in a bad relationship."The new album, I feel, reflects my emotional strength starting to come back to me. I've even managed to let out some anger on this one, instead of just expressing sorrow, and musical mourning. There are however, a couple of moody/electronic songs on it, but they're different. There is a lot more guitar on this album. I've also taken two years to record it in my own private studio. I've actually recorded over 20 new songs during the sessions, so I've had a good amount to pick from.
There is an animated music video online for the new single, "Vampires." It's animated by Scott Bateman. He's a cool guy, and he's been featured on Salon.com for quite a while now. The song is also running during the credits of his animated full length film, "Atom Age Vampire."
My manager is helping me to get my video to television, for broadcast on music channels.
Here is a link to my music video, "Vampires," on Vimeo: http://www.vimeo.com/2535093
JC: I love that video...it goes great with the tune!
JV: I suspect that this one might surprise some of the people who see my main focus as a ballad/ethereal music writer. I have a couple of loud "shit kickers" on this one, as well as some more danceable /upbeat tracks; "Lightning Girl," She Devil," and "Vampires."
JV: I'm planning on releasing this album during late autumn of this year. I've been going through a prolific time period. I decided to just go with that flow, and keep writing for a while. I figured that I'd just know when it was time to put it out. This release goes off to the mastering engineer in September.
I'm currently auditioning guitarists, and I plan on going out to support this album shortly after its release. It will be available at all of the regular online retail stores; Amazon, CDBaby, iTunes, etc... in both digital form, and CD. I will sell CDs exclusively through CDBaby.com.
I've decided to do a run of CDs, because there are still a lot of people who like them.
In the works is a performance music video. I'm looking to November for that. I'm talking with the video director now.
JC: It's great that these two sites have song soundbytes and info on your mixing and mastering process and when the CD will land.
