"Hello Hurricane" Vinyl prints; Kris Allen writing with Jon Foreman and Mike Elizondo

Andy Barron, the esteemed art director for "Hello Hurricane" and photographer/video person etc. for Switchfoot, posted a new blog and a new picture. Dig it!

hey guys. it is crunch week over here in andy barron headquarters (aka, my apartment) for all of the hello hurricane album art for switchfoot. the light at the end of the tunnel is close. can’t wait for you guys all to see it. i think it turned out pretty stinkin great.

i’m very excited that we got to make a vinyl version of the record. me being the vinyl guy that i am, this is near and dear to my heart, so rather than use my original idea for vinyl labels, i scrapped it and went with an old school atlantic look, but with a few embellishments. they didn’t have any old templates or anything, so i just made this from scratch, and i think it turned out pretty great. the record comes out nov 10. get one. love, andy.


And, here it is:



^Be sure to check out andybarron.com for more amazing artwork from this dude. Not only does he do amazing work with Switchfoot, but he's shot the Jonas Brothers, Paramore, Paper Route, Relient K, Mute Math, and more.

In other news, Kris Allen, the latest American Idol winner, tweeted yesterday that he was writing some new music with none other than Jon Foreman and Mike Elizondo. Oh, American Idol and it's hook-ups....

- Just hung with @jonathanforeman and mike Elizondo writing some sweet muzac. Both these guys are crazy talented.

^That is pretty cool though. We now know at least one of the songs will be somewhat interesting....

And, for those of you who couldn't watch the 4-minute long "Hello Hurricane" Teaser Trailer, Brad from over on the official message boards recorded it and posted on Youtube (the universal language of video streaming)



^Thanks so much Brad. I have never seen Jon Foreman that close to tears. I'm not quite sure how to feel... so amazing.

Correct me if I'm wrong but did I sense a little...IDK...not very nice feelings towards Kris Allen?
