I keep a file of inspiring images on my desktop. Sometimes, I browse through it when we're gathering ideas for new album artwork or merchandise. Occasionally, I refer to it when naming a musical project that doesn't have lyrics yet.
One such project is a song I wrote in 2021 called 'Cry, Sis.' Like many of the songs I’ve written, there are several versions, but this is the one I prefer. The title itself is derived from an image by Sebastian Haslauer, which I hold in high regard. In fact, I proposed using the title and artwork for 'Heartthrob' in 2012.
Emy had a high-quality print made for me, which I've kept rolled up in a tube somewhere. Perhaps I'll finally take it out and hang it up here at the office.
PS. I find it amusing that the image contains a martini, because you had your first martini on this most recent tour!
