Following the Official UK Top 5 success of his previous album "Lifeline", RJ Thompson returns with the incredible new 2022 album "Yearbook", his most expansive and ambitious record yet. The album fuses classic songwriting with an alternative indie pop sensibility, sweeping from the sun-kissed bliss of the hopeful Feel Alive, through the alt-pop quirk of Your Money or Your Life, to the intimately beautiful Forest Fires which intertwines voice, guitar and string quartet.
The Limited Edition 12" Transparent Curaçao Blue Vinyl (only 2000 copies available worldwide) is a sight to behold. Packaged in a beautiful gatefold sleeve with full size lyric book and printed inner sleeve, the album also features an incredible Augmented Reality experience.
What is the AR Experience? - People who own the record can download the accompanying RJ Thompson app, hover their device over the artwork, and the record comes to life. Over 150 variations of the album cover will be displayed depending on the time of day, year and weather where you are in the world, and bonus content appears throughout the gatefold sleeve expanding on the stories and themes of the record. A true collector's item!
