Cormorant has released a sneak-peak of the artwork to Dwellings, their new album (planned release date December 6th, 2011). The gorgeous art is by British artist Alice Duke. Cormorant describe her work like this:
The art depicts several scenes from the album's lyrics, and was designed to evoke the same feelings of chaos, mystery, and exploration as a Pieter Bruegel or Hieronymus Bosch painting.Cormorant is a completely independent band. You can find their 2009 release Metazoa at their Bandcamp. You can also support them by preordering Dwellings from their merch store. They have some nice pre-order packages available AND if you order before October 3rd your name will be printed in the credits of the album!
