Bluebird Days II
The 10th studio album, mistakenly released as the 9th (see story below) w/ more songs about birds, flight, feeling blue, blue skies, and skiing in the sun in new snow from the night before, inspired by Scott's reckless ski bum years in Colorado in the early 90s, one with lovely wife Lenore on accordion!

Release Details: The Early Bird Gets Its Worm
Due to a snafu by the distributor, this album was released on Jan. 29, 2019 by mistake, instead of June 21, 2022 as intended, which was to be two years after Bluebird Days, its predecessor which has yet to be released, but is still presumably due to be released on June 21, 2020. Scott Cooley intentionally wanted his next two albums to be released on June 21, 2020, and then on June 21, 2022 respectively, and got the first done near the end of 2018, and the latter done near the beginning of 2019.
Since Scott had two albums of material "in the can" he uploaded them in advance and specified that they automatically be scheduled for release on the specified future date of June 21, only two years apart, respectively in the years 2020 and 2022, which is a thing the distributor allowed. According to them, there was a metadata error and failure in their system that allowed for an activation date that was not accepted by partner sites which resulted in Bluebird Days II being made live despite the release date being far into the future.
The distributor honored this for the first Bluebird Days album which presumably will still be released in 2020 as specified, but the distributor mistakenly released the second one before the first, and did so on Jan 29, 2019 - a full 3 and 1/2 years early. Intending that it be a follow-up or sequel album to the album simply titled Bluebird Days, it appears that the original or prequel as it has now become, Bluebird Days (I or one), is still scheduled to be released on the originally-specified future release date, even though its successor, Bluebird Days II (2 or two), has already been released first.
One weird fact about this whole thing is that Scott is a fan of Neil Young, and Neil once released an album called Chrome Dreams II, which was supposedly the sequel to an unreleased, scrapped original album called Chrome Dreams, which itself had a song on it entitled "Beautiful Bluebird," a purely coincidental fact that had no bearing on either this album's name or the naming of the title of its sister album with no roman numerals after it's name.
