The cover is, unimaginatively, of course, “designed” by Farrow. Here’s the album track listing:
- Your Early Stuff
- A Face Like That
- Breathing Space
- Ego Music
- Hold On
- Give It a Go
- Memory of The Future
- Everything Means Something
- Requiem in Denim and Leopardskin
Double CD and Double Vinyl editions of the album will include instrumental versions of all songs. The album cover above is the single / digital download artwork (presumably the limited version will have a different sleeve?)
Here’s what the website says about the release dates:
