Get On Your Boots

Posted in personal, photography, random by Trey on January 20, 2009

I haven’t had a ton of time but have several blog posts that need to happen. However, all have been preempted to bring you this very, very special announcement.

I just received an email from my friend Ben about the newest U2 single – Get On Your Boots. Have a listen for yourself and any critique I may have isn’t relevant because I am completely biased. It meets two very fundamental criteria for my enjoyment scale to topple: it is U2 and it is new. What more do you need?

On a photography related note, the album’s cover image is from Hiroshi Sugimoto, an amazing Japanese photographer. I first came across his work via a series of images he made in beautiful old movie theaters. He would open the shutter on the first frame of the film and close it when the movie was finished – roughly speaking, these were two hour exposures and they are stunning. The cover image is equally beautiful and I must have tapped into my inner profit when first posting about the new album.

The resembelance is striking.

    no, actually. although looking at it, i see the similarity.

    i sent Kevin two rough versions i comped in PS and he morphed that into the three vertical lines. the three lines are supposed to tie back to my name and URL.
