William Fitzsimmons is ready for a change.
And that change will come when the singer-songwriter begins working on his next album.
“It used to be notebook, a pen, guitar and piano,” he says of his process. “I want to write for three months and try to mix things up a little bit. It might be a nightmare, because I don’t have too much of a direction yet. But I want to expand a little.”
Fitzsimmons is touring in support of his latest album, “Live.” The new set of music was recorded at his concerts across the globe.
The traveling also inspired Fitzsimmons to take a look at his music. After more than 10 years of making music, he doesn’t want to get stuck in a musical rut.
“I’ve learned that you have to be willing to make a bad song,” he says. “But I also have to realize that it’s a bad song and not release it. And you have to move on from that.”
Fitzsimmons will make a stop at Meow Wolf in Santa Fe on Sunday, Nov. 20. To read more, click here.
