The label has released a
3-song digital single, and a 7″ single featuring Fairfield’s take on
traditional tunes “I’ve Always Been A Rambler” b/w “Darling Corey,” samples of
which can be heard at Fairfield’s MySpace page (www.myspace.com/frankfairfield).
According to a spokesperson
at the label, an album will follow in early 2009.
