New 311 Album “Mosaic” to be Released June 23, 2017
311 is set to release their 12th studio album “Mosaic” on June 23. The band also revealed some unique artwork for the release, as well. The cover art for “Mosaic” is a collage made up of almost 10,000 photos sent in to the band by fans.
311’s Nick Hexum says:
“This cover captures the spirit of the collective nature that is 311 – band & fans together to form something greater than the sum of its parts.”
311’s Chad Sexton says:
“We wanted to include our fanbase in the concept of this record. We have a very symbiotic relationship with our fans that see us on touryear after year. We wanted to find an album title that would describe our fan base, our band and our music. And to tie all of this into a concept that could be presented in the album artwork as well.
One definition of MOSAIC states “a combination of diverse elements forming a more or less coherent whole.” We feel this word accurately describes our band, music and fan base together.
For us it’s still a celebration. For the simple fact that if people have different sets of ideas and opinions, likes and dislikes, and are able to get along and come together over the one bond they share (music) – there is no satisfaction like the joy experienced when this happens. It’s a celebration over the triumph of differences.And it’s the concept we’ve been presenting our entire 27 year journey – UNITY.”
The new album is available for pre-order here and will come with the first single “Too Much To Think” and the new song “Too Late.”
