Listen and Learn Music: Pssst...Want a Preview?

Pssst...Want a Preview?

Behold, the cover art for Listen & Learn's debut studio album: Time to Sing Hello.  Although we're still a few weeks away from its official release, I just couldn't help but share my excitement with you.  My experience in the recording studio was amazing, and I'm thrilled with how the tracks turned out, but this whole project didn't feel real until I saw the finished album artwork.

Jason Taylor, a graphic designer on the East Coast, gets all the credit for the concept and design of this album.  I approached him via email back in March, and he responded with an offer to donate his work to the cause.  Needless to say, I was more than thrilled, especially considering his talent and impressive portfolio.  Jason was a dream to work with; he managed to completely capture my vision for this album, and every aspect of the design is perfect. 

I'll unveil the back cover and actual CD artwork when the album is released on July 10, but for now, I'll leave you with a preview track.  "My Clothes and Shoes" turned out to be my favorite song of the bunch, and I hope you like it, too!

I'm eager to hear your thoughts on the song and the album cover. Please take a moment to share them with me in the comments section.

I love the cover and the song! When Sam gets a bit older these songs will be perfect for him!

He loves to jam... Our favorite is the Sid the Science Kid song "I"m lookin' for my friends..." on PBS Mon-Fri at 7:30 am. He dances in a circle the entire song and it is HILARIOUS! If he hears a song he likes he starts bopping. He's adorable :-)

Thank you, Kristen!! And you would be right about that :) I thought it was a good title for the album, too, since it is my first real CD. It's "Time to Say Hello" to the world! HAHA

That's awesome. Really well done! I deal with a lot of gender identity, so my little gender vein twitched about the girls and dresses and boys can not, but I know not everyone is as sensitive to that as I am.

I love it!

I just now discovered this post today and have already listened to the sneak peek preview song three times!!

It's a super cool ultra fun song with a pizazzy background tune goin' on.

I can't wait to be WOW'd with what's to come when you unveil the complete CD and songs on July 10th. I know we will both (my child and me) love em all.

Congratulations, Rachel!! You've already touched the world and the kids who live in it in so many special ways and I'm so happy for you.

Wow, Sandie - thank you!!! You sure know how to make a girl feel good. Thanks for the kind words, and I'm just as excited for you and Matthew to hear the rest of the songs :)
