I can’t stop, so I carry on
I don’t trust God is on my side
Indirect as the gaze of a geisha
I’m still that lost and lonely child.



Sleeve #86

For this new conceptual presentation of James’ mini album « The Morning After », here’s a special cover star in the person of Lyndsey Wilson, with this stunning picture. Lyndsey remarkably serves Lookaway’s artwork, the lead radio track from the mini-album which also featured extensively on the band’s 2011 orchestra tour.
In Lookaway, which offers typically Jamesian mellifluousness, alienation rears its ugly head with lyrics like, “I pretend I know where I’m going / I pretend I know where I’m from.” And here, the music seems to have lost direction as well.

Browse the album.

There has been many version of this sleeve art, and the latest were great. However, considering that there has to be a sort of art unity for each album, this sleeve has been re-done again, and the result seems to be ok.
