FEVER DREAM

26.03.16

 

We recently completed artwork for our long standing client, collaborator and friend Ben Watt's forthcoming album Fever Dream. The new record is Ben's third studio album coming hot on the heels of his sophomore record Hendra which we worked on at the back end of 2014. This record sees the return of Bernard Butler and adds cameos from Marissa Nadler and Hiss Golden Messenger's M.C. Taylor.

The artwork was a longer process than in previous collaborations as we worked tirelessly to capture the essence of the textured nature of the record. Layers and themes are collaged with image repetition, warped textures and filters upon filters are built up to create a harmonious themed dreamscape. The interior of the record is a stark contrast to the outer with bold graphic type and colour to contrast the outer sleeve.

The album will be released by Caroline digitally and with physical CD and Vinyl, including variations created for different territories.
