Relevant sections:

AJOMT: You co-wrote and recorded on Eddie Vedder’s album Earthling. How did that collaboration come to fruition?

Josh: “Very organically, it was incredible. As I said, 2021 sort of seemed like, like the reset button was hit and I was back in the studio. I started working with Andrew Watt and Chad Smith on a Morrissey album, which came out of the blue. And that’s a whole other conversation and it’ll take us an hour. But the short version of it is that Andrew and his team of people got in touch with Morrissey, and there was talk of doing something together. I was extremely lucky to have known Andrew for a little while; he’s really good friends with Chad Smith, and they have this beautiful friendship and musical...

Unfortunately, the full 1hr+ show is behind a pay wall and not on YT where it was advertised.

Little consolation, but it would have featured:

Joe Chiccarelli is a first call producer, engineer, and mixer for some of the world's finest artists, such as Elton John, The Killers, Jack White, Frank Zappa, Alanis Morissette, The Strokes, and so many more.

In this exclusive, Joe opens up the multitrack from "Istanbul" and breaks down the mix while explaining the tracking of the song, the thought process behind his mic placement, and every mix decision. Including a multitude of parallel processing and how he finds the sweet spot on a console for the right amount of saturation and glue.

Watch as Joe:
Explains the origins of the song and their intention as they crafted it from the ground up during tracking
Breaks down his parallel processing on drums, including distressors, a Chandler TG1 limiter, and a UA 176, while explaining which...
