Dear Innovare Album Cover and Tracklisting Reveal

Untitled Design

Big news for the upcoming album. I’m going to reveal the cover and the names of all the songs. Yes, this album cover continues my minimalistic trend. I did the photography and design for it. I used a lot of greens since that color can be symbolic of new life much like how innovators make new life with their inventions, art, etc.

Now without further ado, here are the names of the songs!

1. As Mediocrity Pays to Greatness
2. Ishango
3. Onesimus the Unsung Hero
4. About a Benjamin I: Banneker
5. Incandescent Electric Freeman
6. Lebombo

8. Closed Circuits, Open Mind
9. Restoring Sight While Laser Focused
10. Keep On Building, Otis!
11. T. Jennings: Cleaning Up The Patent Competition
12. Boyd Bedsteads
13. Sincerest Form of Laziness
14. A Chastened Futurist from Smiljan
15. Art Theft: Benin
16. About a Benjamin II: Montgomery
17. Scraping for Blanched Crops
18. Larceny by Dirigible I
19. Art Theft: Nigeria
20. About a Benjamin III: Boardley, Not Bradley
21. Larceny by Dirigible II
22. Annie Minerva Turnbo Malone, The Millionaire Cosmetologist from Metropolis, Illinois

30. I, Axum
31. Larceny by Dirigible V
32. Albert Hollie
33. The Tulsa Strike Back Groove
34. Jo Anderson and The Reaper
35. Cameroonian Originality March
36. Pugnam Contra Fures Leonis Pt. I: Uncrowned King of Johannesburg
37. Pugnam Contra Fures Leonis Pt. II: The Queen Is False and Her Hive Is Deluded
38. Pugnam Contra Fures Leonis Pt. III: Rise of the One True Emperor
39. The Realest Man from Colchester, Ontario

Alright. Which song titles look the most interesting to you? What do you think some of the songs could be about (the ones without the obvious name-dropping that is)?

    • Thank you so much, Jeannette! I think you might like it. To answer your questions…

      5. No, but I do have a song about Tesla in a different track. Interestingly enough, this song does involve one of three people on this album that Edison ripped off.

      38. Hahaha! Whether you know Osamu Tezuka’s famous lion as either Leo or Kimba, one can make an argument that this anime would make sense with the concept album. Funny how 2 of my friends actually wanted me to do a song about that character or at least THAT controversy. :3

      • I’m really glad you feel that way. You’re article taught me about her and I certainly have you to thank. It also feels good knowing we’ve got innovators from my home state even though her birth place is several hours South of me. Interesting fact about Annie Turnbo Malone’s hometown: It’s the only place in America with the name Metropolis and it’s the “official” hometown of Superman. They have statues of him and Lois Lane in that town. That’s fine, but Annie wasn’t a fictional character and she did a lot for the community whether she was there, St. Louis, or Chicago.
