Greetings. It has been a while since we’ve made a post. Things have been busy, but hopefully we can get back to posting consistently in the coming weeks. Now, on to the latest news! A few news items have recently come up, but I’ll just be focusing on just one in this post.
As we have reported before, the official AIO Facebook Page has been pretty active lately. From uploading artwork to posting Odyssey stories, lots of interesting things are always being uploaded.
Yesterday, a most intriguing announcement was made.
A post which simply read, “Prepare yourselves”, along with picture of a CD cover with aa question mark on it and text underneath which reads “Album 74 Revealed: ON WEDNESDAY!” was posted. It appears as though the AIO Team is planning to make an official announcement of the upcoming album!
This is most unexpected. I assume that this means that on Wednesday the cover art for Album 74 will be posted. I can’t recall the last time the Odyssey team themselves did a reveal of an upcoming mainstream album. But this is actually something we should’ve seen coming. In a recent live chat with Nathan Hoobler, the following statement was made by Nathan regarding album 74:
We hope to have a final title for Album 74 next week. We do have all the episodes recorded (as of last Thursday)! No announcement on the title – maybe we should do that on the podcast before it leaks out through other sources.Nathan Hoobler, June 21, 2022
As I said before, I’m pretty sure he was indirectly referring to the summary for Album 73: 28 Hours released on Amazon before it was removed and then fans spreading the word. It looks like he was serious. After that reveal of the summary for Album 73, I can imagine that the AIO Team isn’t going to take any more chances. The fact that they’re about to announce it themselves confirms this. And I’m actually pretty happy about it. There is potential for a lot of fun things that can be done with official reveal for upcoming albums (a video podcast unveiling, puzzles, scavenger hunt, etc.).
I don’t have much more to say except that overall, I am looking forward to Wednesday!
Wow, this was a pretty short post. What are your thoughts on Album 74 about to be officially announced? Feel free to leave a comment! You can be sure that we’ll be writing our thoughts and theories for Album 74 when it is revealed. Stay tuned.
