In a posting at miketramp.dk Tramp said, "Well the new album is done, and I must tell you, I am both pleased and proud. It has been such a comfort to finally be able to make this album, the kind of album I have never done before, and I am so looking forward to hear what you all think about it when the time comes. At this moment I don't have a release date, and I know it will be awhile, but I'll let you know the second I have the official date."
"In the mean time, and also a first time," the singer continues. "I am venturing out across Europe, all alone with just my guitar. I have never done this before, but again looking very much forward to bring all these old songs down to the purest and simple form, like they were when they were written. I hope to cover as many countries and cites as possible, and this journey will carry on into 2013, actually it might never stop, after all this is what I am. So there you have it, something new to chew on. And yes I will do my absolute best, to bring this vagabond show to both the USA and Australia."
