Dear Swans -
We are very happy to announce that we have secured our Fall 2019 album cover and name. In addition to recording the album, we have been looking through thousands of photos for the perfect picture and it all came together this week. There is a huge Italian influence that runs throughout the album and it made sense to go back to our great friend in Italy, Andrea Gottardi, who also contributed the cover for a moment of happiness, our 6th release and my personal favorite. Alessandro Dematteis, a co-writer on the album is contributing the back cover which is still in progress. We were...

As a request from my friend, Alessandro, who is sitting beside me in the studio, I have remixed one of our more popular songs to give you all as a gift this month. He has made the trek from Italy across the ocean to America and has been a source of inspiration to get back up and write new songs again. I'm not ready to share the new songs because. first, they aren't fully finished and second, they are great enough to start a possible new album. God, eight albums? I'm still digesting the seventh. Alessandro,...
Here's yet another track that was eliminated from our album, even though there was some popular demand for it to stay. Sorry, Marco and Kitty! And, get well Mad Max. I've completely remixed this one with an extended hard ending after an acoustic start. I've added some additional acoustics, one being our trademark Nashville Tuning acoustic that John turned me on to during Things You Know And Love. Rush To Find, in actuality, has been now cut from 7 records. The sad part is... I really like this version. Ha!
CRANK UP YOUR HEADPHONES AT THE END. If you are playing this through your phone...

BLACK SWAN LANE - REVENGE (UNMASTERED ACOUSTIC MIX)
There was recently a poll on facebook on which BLACK SWAN LANE songs you would like an acoustic mix of, so by popular demand, here you go. The poll was on a new BLACK SWAN LANE facebook fan page called BLACK SWAN LANE RELAX AND BREATHE which is run by Alessandro De Matteis in Italy and Terry McGarry in England. Thanks guys! It took an entire day in the studio to complete this edited version which has several changes as well. I'm enjoying turning some of these into acoustic versions which is bringing out a lot of our picking...

MOST people know it from journeys to Tesco, but a Didcot pylon has now become the unlikely cover star of a new rock album.
An amateur photographer's photo of the pylon, which sits opposite the junction of Tamar Way and Abingdon Road, features on the front cover of Under My Fallen Sky, the seventh album by American band Black Swan Lane which was released on Wednesday.
The atmospheric image was chosen by lead singer Jack Sobel who spotted it on the Facebook...
