In Arjen's latest video update, he reveals the cover artwork of his new concept solo album. The 2-CD release is called Lost In The New Real. For the artwork Arjen joined forces with renowned designer Claudio Bergamin, and together they created an striking art concept based on classic 50s and 60s sci-fi movie posters. You can see Arjen comments (and hear a preview of some music) in the video below:
You can see a large version of the cover artwork on Arjen's web site. Lost In The New Real will be released via InsideOut Music on April 23rd in Europe (April 20th in G/S/A), and May 8 in the USA.
In case you missed the last update, Lost In The New Real features legendary screen actor Rutger Hauer in the role of the album's narrator. "This is a dream come true," says Arjen. "Rutger is not only one of my favorite actors, he also starred in my all-time favorite sci-fi movie, Blade Runner." Rutger also enjoyed the collaboration with Arjen, saying "it was marvelous work, very creative."
