Anton Corbijn: “I photographed Armin with the idea to modify the public perception of him”

After months and months of waiting, anticipating and teasing, it’s finally here. Today, Armin van Buuren revealed the brand new cover-art for his upcoming album ‘Embrace’.

EMBRACE Armin van BuurenThe ever-growing dance music scene has kept its ear out for the successor of ‘76’, ‘Shivers’, ‘Imagine’, ‘Mirage’ and ‘Intense’. Armin is thrilled to announce his sixth and latest full-length studio album, EMBRACE (Armada Music), to be released on October 29th. The graphic design and iconography for EMBRACE were created by renowned photographer, film and music video director, Anton Corbijn.

Over the years, Corbijn’s enduring photographs have included those of Keith Richards, U2, Depeche Mode, David Bowie, Robert De Niro, Kate Moss, Clint Eastwood and countless other cultural and artistic icons in a photographic career that’s spanned four decades. For Armin, an album is a full-body experience and a total work of art. With EMBRACE, Armin aims to shatter his previous artistic boundaries and push himself ever higher.

“I photographed Armin with the idea to modify the public perception of him and of what he is creating. He is such a nice guy, so I worked on giving him a bit more edge visually and created images that hold a mix of references to Sgt. Pepper and Mad Max. Playful stuff basically. Apt for a versatile DJ who adores music and travels the world.” Anton says on the concept of the new album cover.

EMBRACE deserves your full attention, from the first beat until the very last note of silence. Read more on EMBRACE here.
