Production time for a single song

Post by JEDM »

If memory serves, I distinctly remember an interview from the "Internet Leaks" era where Al said that he can have a song recorded, mixed and mastered in 2 weeks. Is this (still) true?

Be jealous.

Or less! But every song is different, there's no rule of thumb. Recording and mixing times vary.

Whatever You Like is an example of how quickly we can put a song out. I remember that Al let us know on a Saturday that he was going to ask permission, and 17 days later, the final version was on iTunes!
