According to Andy, the writing on this album happened organically and he had the title for the record from the onset.  ”This will be the record to leave behind when I’m gone.”  This is the album to send into outer space for other civilizations to get an account of what life was like on Earth.  Songs on the album delineate subjects such as The Suffragettes, The Dawn Of Man, Prostitutes, Religion, Love, Sex, Death and The Life of Andy.

The Album cover will be done by Photographer by Julie de Waroquier, who also did the covers by some Black Swane Lane albums.
