James have morphed all seven of their faces together to form the decidedly bizarre image that will adorn their new album, dotmusic can exclusively reveal.
The picture, above, is a computer-generated photograph, taking certain characteristics from the members of the band. The ‘person’ created is called ‘James’.
The decision has been prompted by the constant misunderstanding surrounding the band’s name, as a spokeswoman for the band explained to us today.
It’s all come about because the band/Tim are always asked if they are James. They decided to create an eighth member that they would call James and use that image for the album cover.
The band’s new album, entitled ‘Pleased To Meet You’, is released next month and has once again been produced by electro-ambient pioneer and general legend Brian Eno.
Eno explained how the album had come together: It’s like when people make their first album, they’re full of enthusiasm and excitement and they know what they’re doing and it’s a pleasure. This was like making a first album.
