My good friend Birkir Blær, saxophone player in the Mánudjass group, asked me in 2016 to make an album cover for the group.
We were exploring how we could represent Mánudjass, and the event Húrra, in the most logical sense. The angel with the horn (can be seen below) had been sort of a logo for the Mánudjass events, in one form or another, so it kind of made sense to go in that direction in the beginning. Not everybody was into it so we changed directions and started working with this photo taken of a guy at a Mánudjass concert.
The photo is simply great. The guy in the photo - some American - came to a Mánudjass concert one time and absolutely loved it - and someone took a picture of it. He is just SO happy that we just had to use the picture.
If I remember correctly I begged Birkir to find the guy (lives somewhere in the US) to get his permission for using him on an album cover.. which I’m not sure he did. But, I know for a fact that he has received the album and loved it!
