MIssy Higgins Releases Album Artwork For The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle

April 18th, 2012

I’m super excited about Missy Higgins making a come-back with her new album set to launch June 1, called The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle.

Just yesterday, she showed off the gorgeous artwork for the cover of her album. The artwork is by Melbourne artist, Kate Tucker, who earlier this month was selected as a finalist in one of Australia’s most prestigious art prizes, The Archibald Prize, also with a painting of Missy.

“Kate is an extraordinary artist, I’m a huge fan of her work and when we met through a mutual friend we clicked straight away,” Missy says.  ”With the album art she’s managed to capture the essence of this album so completely and wonderfully. To me it portrays not only the darker, creative and more introspective side of me but also the ‘performance’ persona, (or the ‘razzle dazzle’) and how these two worlds merge.”

Check out the video below which is the second installment of making ‘The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle’ video below. Enjoy!

Missy’s first single Unashamed Desire is due for release April 23! Stay tuned.
