At last, Derivations is in pre-production! I uploaded the songs and the artwork to CD Baby today, and I’ve placed the order for the CDs and the physical/digital distribution. Everything is in the inspection phase at the moment, but the gears are in motion for a release!
Now, I can finally show you a sneak peek of the cover art for the CD! It’s the image that’s been uploaded with this post. I’ll be uploading a larger version on Facebook, so head over to my Facebook account if you want to see it. The design is a derivation (get it? eh?) of the Calibrations CD cover design. (It may not be mathematically correct, but that’s beside the point.) I want to thank Rob Curulli for bringing the design to life.
The way things look right now, it appears the digital release may take place before the physical release, although I’m trying to time the two so that they’ll come out together. The digital files are on a course for a June 5th release, however iTunes users can pre-order the album beginning May 22nd (if it passes inspection!). Those who pre-order on iTunes will receive track one, “CyberFlight,” as an “instant gratification” track, and will automatically receive the remainder of the album upon release.
Watch for more details as they become available. Time to start getting excited!
