Fans have waited a year for Donovan's latest release, "October." what they didn't expect was a complete product overhaul. All previous recordings have been re-mixed and mastered, and will be available for sale on Friday September 23rd!

Donovan Johnson has had a very busy year. In addition to keeping up with the demands of the full time musician, Donovan has been in the studio recording his latest release, "October."

"October is an album that, like my previous three, has music from many different periods of my life. Some of the tunes are new, and others have just been waiting for the right time to go into production. I don't think it's necessarily the right thing to do to record a song as soon as you write it. Sometimes, the music has to sit and age for awhile, develop character."

Donovan explains that, like biological life, the music often needs time to breath. "Much of what I write has so much of my own personality in it. That includes the need to wake up, wash, and drink several cups of coffee before going out into the world. Sometimes that doesn't happen until mid afternoon! And then there's that rare morning when I wake at 6am and think, "Wow. I'm ready. Let's do this! And, there are a few of those tunes scattered throughout "October" as well.

So why "October?" "October is a month that doesn't get a lot of attention. Consider June and July, or November and December. Even February. These months bring immediate images of Holidays, memories and the like to the minds of most people. "October" makes us think of Halloween, but there is so much more to October. It's a dark month, getting darker quite literally. But it's also one of the most beautiful months of the year, as the shrubs, plants and trees all make their transition. I wanted to display that image in the music found on the album. Even the "Island Suite" is not what one might expect to hear, but more so images of the mystical found in island villages, and pictures of the night sky seen from an old world perspective."

In addition to recording "October" Donovan has been re-mixing and re-mastering his previous three recordings at KNL Studios in Omaha.

"I think overall the previous three albums sound good. I could live with them. But why settle for that? Technology is opening so many other doors for us, and that means more sounds and sound quality capability. I wanted to go back, revisit what I'd recorded and make it sound that much brighter, that much better. Call me a perfectionist, I am!"

All material is scheduled to be ready for re-release on Friday, September 23rd. This is the same day that Donovan will be holding his "Grand CD Release Party" featuring the new album "October." The release concert will be held at The SNJ Studio Of Music in Omaha, 14215 Q St, at 7:30pm Admission is free!

"I'm looking forward to a great time with everyone. I know that folks are going to be thrilled with what they hear that evening, and hopefully they'll take a piece of it home with them to share."
