We finished the album,’THE BLUE ECONOMY’ by JVK
The Blue Economy?
What is that?
Paper made out of stone!
For the sleeve of this album not one tree was cut!
The first single of the album we want to release and promote is ‘The Mess’,
which is not about the Earth,
but about making love in the grass and hairdressers:)
As you can read on the back of the sleeve some of the songs were inspired by the book ‘The Blue Economy’ by Gunter Pauli.
As it gives many solutions for the current global problems, it really changed my life and as such also my lyrics. It makes cleaning up the world fun and shows us that we don’t have do/have less but different.
One of the many ‘out of the box’ ideas in the book is, thanks to new technologies, that we can make paper out of stone, without having to cut trees. (you may have noticed that there is an abundance of stone).
We are quite proud to have probably the first ever stonepaper sleeve for this CD.
I hope this creates a bit awareness of all the things that are already possible and happening right now.
You know what ‘the’ people say: ‘The world is full of solutions’
And as for my music, it is at your service.
