Eddie Vedder Reveals Ukulele Songs Album Art
The cover depicts "The Lost Correspondent," an underwater sculpture from Jason deCaires Taylor. On the artist's site, the piece is described with the following statement:
The Lost Correspondent depicts a man sitting at a desk with a typewriter. The desk is covered with a collection of newspaper articles and cuttings that date back to the 1970s. Many of these have political significance, a number detail Grenada's alignment with Cuba in the period immediately prior to the revolution. The work informs the rapid changes in communication between generations. Taking the form of a traditional correspondent, the lone figure becomes little more than a relic, a fossil in a lost world.
In addition to the highly symbolic album art, U.S. readers can head over to the album's Amazon page and check out 30-second snippets of each track. While we can't preview the album yet in Canada, it will be more of a surprise when it is released on May 31 via Pearl Jam's own Monkeywrench Records.
Thanks to Antiquiet for the tip.
