It's a bird, it's a plane, it's the cover art for Eddie Vedder's upcoming solo album Ukulele Songs and it doesn't have a ukulele on it! Take that literalists! What? Too much? But look at all of those sentences that don't end with periods! That has to account for something right? No? Fine, I wasn't going to invite you anyway.
The sixteen song set that will undoubtedly feature some ukulele, unlike the Jason deCaires Taylor designed cover above, doesn't hit shelves until May 31st so all you out there in Eddie nation will have plenty of time to contemplate the meaning of a man underwater at a desk with a typewriter. The artist figures it as such:
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.
Weird, I was pretty certain it was just a deleted scene from Titanic. [via antiquiet]
