The new album War Torn is now complete, along with the artwork which is about to be printed out as a 4 sided card CD. The front cover has been revealed on Facebook so here it is below too:
It is a photo taken by O-Ten Photography of She's Got Claws (me) and a war torn city projected onto my hand with a child running for his life. This gives you the feel of what this new electronic album is all about and how we look at these horrifying scenes on our screens with one eye closed.
Writing an album is all about expressing how you feel about many perspectives of a subject which you feel strongly about, and this subject of war and the devastation it causes to the families caught up in the middle of political feuds is something which I feel I cannot ignore. I sob my heart out over these human beings and fatalities and how cruel the media are towards these desperate families who are looking for refuge and safety from the barrel bombings. It is so heart breaking. I truly hope that you feel for them too and hope that if this happens to you, you will know that there are people out there who actually care about you and want to help in any way they can.
The only difference between us and them is that we are the lucky ones.
War Torn is expected to have a release date in Autumn 2017. Nothing as yet is confirmed, as there is still lots of work to do to launch this album and to get main parties involved to get this vital message across.
