OK people, as some of you may have noticed, the cover art for ‘Tape Deck Heart’ is killer. You may or may not also know that the art was done by the amazing Heather Law, a tattooer friend of mine from Florida. Far from being some big shot illustrator type, she’s someone who once came to a show and gave me some small drawings based on song titles, and I loved them so much I asked her to do the art for the new album.
With that in mind, I thought it might be cool to see what other people have up their artistic sleeves. If you’re feeling creative, have a look through the song titles for the record below and let your mind wander – there are no rules.
If you come up with something cool, stick it on Twitter with the hashtag #tapedeckart (get it?). I’ll be checking them over. The best ones win handwritten, signed lyric sheets for the song. Also, don’t worry, we won’t use anyone’s art for anything more without permission.
Here’s the song titles:
The Way I Tend To Be
Plain Sailing Weather
Good & Gone
Tell Tale Signs
Four Simple Words
The Fisher King Blues
Deadline for this is Friday 31st May.
