It seems that the new Phish album could be released any day now, as eight new titles have just appeared on the band’s work title registration list on BMI. As BMI is responsible for Phish’s music publishing and royalties, the confirmed registration of these new titles – as well as some other recently registered works – could indicate that the new album release is imminent.The whole process began last winter, when Phish announced during their Mexico run that they would be working on an album during the off-season. That album was subsequently recorded in Nashville, and guitarist Trey Anastasio announced that the album was completed during the band’s performance in San Francisco, just a few weeks ago. With appearances at LOCKN’, Dick’s, and a fall tour on the schedule, this would be an ideal time to build hype surrounding a new release. The band also performed a number of new originals on tour.As reported by Phishatthemann, the number of Phish’s registered song titles jumped from 208 to 216 today. This can be confirmed by the work order number associated with each song, as the number increases proportionally with time – aka newer songs have higher numbers. There are eight songs that have numbers in the #22,000,000 range, listed below:-Ass Handed-Blaze On-Breadth And Burning (spelled differently than listed on LivePhish during summer shows)-Friends-Let’s Go-Miss You-Shade-Tide TurnsAdditionally, there are two songs that must have been added recently, as they are in the #20,000,000 range for their work order number. This includes “How Many People Are You” and “No Men In No Man’s Land,” both songs that debuted during the summer of 2015. As a reference, songs from the Fuego album appear in the #17,000,000-18,000,000 range, as they have now been registered for two years.An album with these ten songs is certainly exciting, though there is currently no inclusion of the 15-minute instrumental piece that was mentioned in an interview with Hamilton percussionist Andrés Forero back in June. Forero contributed to every track on the studio album after meeting the Phish crew at a performance of Hamilton back in January, and referenced a “15-minute piece with classical percussion” when talking about the unlikely collaboration. Also notably absent are “Mercury,” “Things People Do,” and “Waking Up Dead,” though the registration for those and others could still be in the works.It seems likely that an announcement of the new album could come any day now, and we’ll be sure to update when we have more information.

A pecan blog is helping University of Georgia Cooperative Extension horticulture specialist Lenny Wells reach growers in Georgia and across the world.Started in April 2014, UGA’s pecan blog addresses all issues concerning pecan production, including irrigation scheduling, common insect pests and scab disease. Wells, UGA Extension’s pecan specialist, says the blog was necessary due to Georgia farmers’ interest in pecan production. Once Wells began updating his blog regularly, enthusiasm for pecan production information grew. Over a 30-day period, Wells estimates the blog receives between 5,000 and 6,000 hits, or views. The blog also draws interest from readers in several South American countries, Australia, South Africa and India.The blog format makes sharing information easy and allows Wells to distribute information on specific topics at specific times throughout the season. “At different times of the year, you seem to have certain topics that everybody’s dealing with, and I’ll get a lot of calls on that one issue,” Wells said. “I thought the blog would be a good way to go ahead and get information out there, especially to the Extension agents. At a specific time each year, you can expect to see ‘this,’ ‘this’ is what’s going on and ‘this’ is what you need to do for it.”During the summer, one of Wells’ most popular posts covered is the water needs for pecans. Given the dry conditions Georgia has experienced since May, irrigation scheduling is essential to producing a desirable crop in the fall. “We’re getting into the time (of year) when water demand starts to increase. Growers want to know how much water to apply to get the nut size they want,” Wells said.Normally, insect problems and scab disease are relevant pecan-growing topics during the summer months. Fortunately for pecan growers, the drier temperatures and lack of rain in south Georgia in May and the first part of June has caused scab disease to taper off as compared to 2014.“It’s not as bad as we’ve seen the last two years. It started out looking like it was going to be because April was pretty wet, and we did start out seeing a fair amount of leaf scab out there. But it turned dry in May, and I think that has saved us,” Wells said. “So far, I haven’t seen any pecan scab to speak of. The crop looks to be in pretty good shape.”When the marketing season arrives, Wells will use the blog to provide growers information on where to go to find the price of pecans and to keep producers updated on the latest news in the industry nationwide.“I will try to update the blog at least once a week. At certain times of the year, I may update it two or three times a week. Then, in the offseason, I may do it a couple of times a month. It just depends on what’s going on,” Wells said. “During the growing season, I try to keep up with what’s going on with the crops and get information out there so people will know what to look for and what they need to be doing.”To access Wells’ pecan blog, go to blog.extension.uga.edu/pecan.
