Shirin Sahba’s Painting

Dear friends,

I’m thrilled to share with you Shirin Sahba‘s stunning new painting, specially commissioned for the cover of Year of the Nightingale.

When Shirin agreed to paint the album cover, I knew the artwork was in good hands. Midway through recording, I sent her a handful of half-finished songs to listen to and left her to it. When she sent me this a few months later, my jaw hit the floor. The painting is now with designer Jamie Hanrahan, being set out for the album cover.

Thank you Shirin! (click the painting to see the full-size image!)
