Following his recent cinematic, brooding cover version of ‘Money (That’s What I Want)’, drummer, singer and multi-instrumentalist Nick D’Virgilio has released the energetic, uptempo ‘In My Bones’ as the latest single to be issued from his brand new solo album, ‘Invisible’, which is also out today (26th June). A 20 minute ‘making of’ the album documentary has also been made available that describes its recording process and includes footage from both Abbey Road Studios in London and Sweetwater Sound in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It can be seen here:

Befitting his reputation as one of the world’s leading drummers, ‘Invisible’ features a different kit on every song and D’Virgilio will be making videos available for all of them. Explaining the thinking behind this, he states: “I wanted people to see and hear the kits away from the songs. Showing all of those amazing instruments, what they are made of and the stories behind them. The manufacturers put so much thought and effort into their instruments and they said yes to my project. I am beyond blessed and want to show whoever takes the time to watch the videos why I chose what I chose and how it fits the song. Maybe helping them find ways to choose the right gear for their next project. I think many amateur drummers go into recording with the mindset of ‘these are my drums and that’s it.’ Even if you only have one drum kit you can still sculpt the sound to the song you are working on. Changing drum heads, using different dampening techniques and different kinds of sticks can radically change the sound of the kit. All of the other players in a band sculpt their sound to fit the song. Drummers can do absolutely the same.”

Four of these videos can be seen already:
‘Turn Your Life Around’
‘I’m Gone’
‘Money (That’s What I Want)’
‘Where’s The Passion’
