European Howl on Spotify

Hope you enjoy it!

AGENT STARLING

We found that the only music sales platform that is fair to artists is Bandcamp, especially on the first Friday of the month when they waive their revenue waive their revenue share, helping to support musicans who have lost income during the pandemic. But nevertheless, European Howl is available on all the other outlets from today. So, for example, you can have a listen on Spotify and if you would like to download it, head over to Bandcamp here https://loudhaileruk.bandcamp.com/album/european-howl on Friday 🎶🤓

Hope you enjoy it!

The Story behind Agent Starling’s European Howl Cover Art

The story behind the remarkable European Howl artwork by fine artist Anna Kirk-Smith

AGENT STARLING

We have had lots of lovely comments about our spectacular European Howl starling and hurdy-gurdy art work. The cover was created by fine artist Anna Kirk-Smith. Anna, a graduate of the Royal College of Art, and a previous Head of BA(Hons) Fine Art at Hull School of Art & Design told us about how she developed the idea for the cover.

“Whilst standing at my studio window watching the shrieking pitch battle of starlings tussling for a beakful of mealwormed suet, the thought came to me that what this species and hurdy-gurdys have in common is that once they get going, they are both impossible to ignore.

What was the hardest part about putting this release together, and why?
