LIVING COLOUR Seeking Original Images For New Album Cover

LIVING COLOUR is compiling material for a new album entitled "The Chair in the Doorway". The band would like fans, non-fans, and photographers to participate in this process by submitting original images conveying their interpretation of "The Chair in the Doorway". The image could become artwork for the next LIVING COLOUR album!

Commented guitarist Vernon Reid: "I did a press junket for 'CollideØscope' with Corey [Glover, vocals] and whenever something was going wrong, Corey would always say, 'The chair in the doorway.' It was just one of these things he would say and I looked at him and said, 'You know that thing you always say, that's going to be the title of our next album.' I don't know what that means but that's it. What I like about 'The Chair In The Doorway' is that it is a concrete image and a very real thing but… Why is there a chair in the doorway? What does it mean? It's completely abstract, while being a contract, a physical manifestation of what it is."

Proof of ownership will be required prior to finalizing agreements with LIVING COLOUR.

Please submit/post a photo by February 28, 2009. Finalists will be appropriately notified.
