Upto UG Acoustic Originals Album II (Planning Thread)

Heeeeeey, sup. Last year this was a thing that we did, so let's make it a thing again in 2015.

old planning thread
release thread for the first album
UG Community Acoustic Albums Bandcamp

The basic idea is that you guys write some original songs with the single restriction that they need to be acoustically arranged (we're a little bit lenient on that, though... I'll elaborate later in the post), then you submit them and we compile them all into a super-rad album.

I'll be running this project along with SGstriker, so if you have any questions or whatever feel free to ask either of us.

If you want to participate just let me know. Also, please sticky this thread so that you can stay up to date with everything going on.

The Details
-Submissions can't be covers. Original songs only. Instrumentals are ok.
-Feel free to submit old songs. You don't have to write something new for this.
-One submission per person. This rule is subject to change depending on how many people participate.
-Collabs are cool! If you want to collaborate on a submission with other UGers that's totally fine.
-IMPORTANT: To submit your song, post a link to download your track. Keep in mind that your songs should be in in one of the following file formats: .wav, .aif or .flac. This is so that once the album is finished we can release it on bandcamp. Also, when you post a link to your song, please include your artist name (this will be either your username, your real name, or some sort of other artist name that you want to be credited under) and the name of your song.
-What counts as "acoustic"?
Here's what we decided in the previous thread.


Deadline
April 7th

If they're prerecorded (as in I did them awhile ago), can I still submit one?

Ahh.. where's the fun in that

(if that's the case, then I have an old recording that fits the bill, and I'd like to contribute a newer piece also.)

Absolutely. You guys don't have to write new songs for this. I probably should have mentioned that in the OP.

I have a couple songs that I could record. I guess the one that turns out the best could be submitted here

Hmm the song I wanted to submit has production issues and at a couple parts randomly fades from stereo to mono.

Any idea when the deadline will be around? In March sometime?

Otherwise I only have today to decide what to submit. Which is fine, I just gotta know
