New Alphanaut cover art for upcoming "Little Sun" album

It's been a long time since I've made a blog post. Wow... almost 8 months actually. I've been 'off the map' during that time diligently working away and finishing the new Alphanaut album "Little Sun", which has preoccupied literally all my time. So much so that there hadn't been much room to do much else. It's been a long, long process of getting this new album recorded, but I can now officially announce that the mastered discs are in my hands and will soon be on their way out for the replication process. Crack open the Champagne!

Alphanaut Little Sun Cover I wanted to get back into the swing of things by sharing the cover art for "Little Sun" which was photographed by my friend William Thoren. The image is of a beautiful California Oak in the hills above Los Angeles. Will and I worked together on the photography for "The Lunar Age" EP, and when I approached him about creating an image for the new album, I told him of my desire to keep the art direction very grounded and organic. I knew Will had been working on a series of illuminated plants and landscapes which worked perfectly with what I had been envisioning. Once I saw his image of this beautiful tree illuminated in the night sky above the city lights, I knew it was the one. With a little PhotoShop magic we created a bed of stars and the starburst to tie it all together. Another of Will's images has been selected for the first single of "Little Sun" titled "Back to the Stars" which I will be sharing here later. Stay tuned here on the blog or at PlanetAlphanaut.com for more details.
