Comes out tomorrow. This was a piece I couldn’t wait to arrange because it’s one of my favorites ever written. The lyrics speak to me, the music speaks to me, and Trent Reznor is a huge influence on my work.
'Closer' was chosen by you after I received all of your messages, tweets, and reblogs.
For the cover art, whenever I think of dark industrial music I think of a gray/black/orange color scheme. This is because growing up I listened to Dillinger Escape Plan and loved their cover art that closely resembled this. The orchestra hands are shaded and outlined to add to the dark, mysterious, and overall intrigue.
This cover’s artwork has scratch marks as if to resemble sex and deep breaths. The arrangement plays off that emotion and, quite fittingly, starts slow, quiet, and thoughtful before leading up to a climactic, aggressive, and forceful drive.
