HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT: Adam Duritz of the Counting Crows is releasing a solo record, and HE CALLED ON HIS FANS TO DESIGN the front and back cover ARTWORK. There were over 1,400 submissions. Last night, he narrowed it all the way down to two covers because he said that he “couldn’t live without either one.” They will both be pressed for a limited edition release — 500 vinyl copies of each selection, and also available for digital download. LESLEIGH’S ARTWORK HAS BEEN CHOSEN for the official album artwork for Adam Duritz’s “All My Bloody Valentines” !!!
Here’s what he had to say on the band’s Facebook page:
“Lesleigh’s heart is perfectly jarring in its artificiality, a cold reminder of the holiday itself sometimes, but the back, broken pieces scattered about, is a more fragile Valentine.”
We are so excited about this! We both worked very hard on this project, and we are so thrilled to have our work featured on one of our biggest influences’ new project. Adam Duritz has made the album available for free download, so please check it out. Thanks so much for reading!
