GEMINI GEMINI IS HERE! + COVER ART STORY
The new album is finally released, for the time being only for the Nordic market. If you’re not living in the Nordics you can still find and order a physical copy on some of our great online stores. All links below! HOPE YOU’LL LIKE IT! And oh, the VINYL EDITION is coming in a few weeks!
THE COVER ART!
The cover art is made by Simon Andersson (works at Oakwood agency + freelance), based on a photo taken of me by the great bass player Tony Levin, a tour companion from the Peter Gabriel tours. Tony always photographs on stage during the gigs, and one night he took an especially nice, very graphic profile shot of me. We asked if we could use it to make something out of it for the cover art, and Simon created this 4-headed Jennie figure. The heads are to illustrate one of the album’s main lyrical themes – that of the inherent duplicity all humans carry – it’s like we all had an inner twin. Hence the title; GEMINI GEMINI. The nice colours and patterns on the label copy is just a small part of the 4-head construction, but tilted to one side. The same pattern, but in black & white, was used for the digital cover of the single “THE WAR”.
