The Deedle Deedle Dees' new album comes out TODAY!

The Deedle Deedle Dees' first album in five years comes out TODAY, September 29th. The Deedle Deedle Dees are my long-running educational rock band. 

The album is called Sing-a-long History, Vol II: The Rocket Went Up! It's the second installment in my Sing-a-long History series, a collection of albums that tell stories from history using music. The first volume, Sing-a-long History, Vol I: Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!, came out last year. It's an introduction to the Civil War era featuring me backed up by a raucous jazz band performing songs from the 1800s as well as original tunes inspired by stories of the time. 

Sing-a-long History, Vol II: The Rocket Went Up! is a record of all original songs drawn from the history of science, discovery, and magic. The title track celebrates female astronauts. There are songs about marathon swimmer Diana Nyad, computer programmer Ada Lovelace, Charles Darwin, and Harry Houdini. And all sorts of other stories in song that we can't wait for you to hear. 

You can buy the album right now here. You can also find it on iTunes and other download services. 

Brooklyn CD release concert: October 22nd at Jalopy Theatre and School of Music at 3pm.

Daily videos + streaming sing-a-longs this summer

Today, I posted video #7 of my Summer of Song. Every day I'm going to put up a different song every day until Labor Day on this YouTube playlist. Thanks, everybody, who's been watching and commenting! 

I'm also going to be doing live streaming sing-a-longs. I did a bunch of test ones this past week and this upcoming one I'm going to try to do some regularly scheduled live sing-a-longs. Here are the times:

Tuesdays at ~ 10:30 / 11
Fridays at ~ 10 / 10:30

Why are the times not exact? Well, my schedule and wireless connections aren't consistent this summer so I have to keep my start times approximate due to all the variables related to these things. 

You can find the sing-a-longs on my Facebook page. Give my page a "Like" and you'll be notified every time I go live (in addition to the scheduled sing-a-longs, sometimes I go live impromptu). 

Please spread the word about all of this and send me your requests! You can e-mail me at lloydhmiller AT gmail, comment or DM me on FB, or shout at me on Twitter.
