Album artwork for Scutheotaku "Multilayer" EP.
Published:
ARTWORK FOR THE NEW SCUTHEOTAKU ALBUM "MULTILAYER",  MADE FOR CHAMPAGNE RECORDS. 
 
THE NAME "MULTILAYER" CAME OUT BECAUSE OF THE MANY LAYERS OF DIFFERENT INSTRUMENTS AND  STYLES THAT WERE USED FOR THIS RELEASE, FURTHERMORE,  IT MAKES A PUN WITH "MULTIPLAYER",
A REFERENCE TO THE ARCADE GAME WORLD THAT IS A MAJOR INSPIRATION FOR SCUTHEOTAKU.
IN FACT, THE ALBUM IS A MIXTURE OF '70s DISCO MUSIC, TROPICAL SURF TUNES,
'80s SYNTH POP AND ARCADE GAME SOUNDTRACKS.
SO I DEVELOPED THE SAME ARTWORK WITH FOUR DIFFERENT LOOKS,
WHERE EACH VERSION REPRESENTS ONE OF THOSE MUSICAL STYLES.
 
ALL THE FOUR COVERS WERE THEN PUBLISHED WEEK BY WEEK ON CHAMPAGNE RECORDS, PLAYING WITH THE FANS ABOUT HOW THE LABEL COULDN'T DECIDE WHICH ONE BEST FITTED THE SOUND OF THE ALBUM.
JUST AT THE END A MULTILAYERED COMBINATION OF THEM ALL WAS REVEALED
AS THE FINAL COVER.


HOPE YOU ENJOY IT!
