    Default New Album Art

    Anyone know what the meaning of that train is on the new art?
    So far, we have heard the Times Square billboard art is "inspired" by the new album cover.

    I did a little research on the train featured in the art and it is from a now-defunct New York railroad.

    I think the going rumor/whatever is that the first single will be a Van Halenized version of Love Train.

    The locomotive itself is an Alco NYC Hudson.

    As a slight side note, I've been thinking about getting back into model railroading after not having touched it in 25 years. I've been looking for a Hudson with that streamlined nose and not having any luck.

    Anyhow, I really like the art deco look of it. Really sweet. VH is saying that the album artwork will be similar or based on this. Nice choice for whatever this turns out to be.

    Whether published as a "Promotional gimmick" or an outright mistake on their website, Target.com released the graphic for the new Van Halen album, to be released on February 7, 2012. While viewable online for less than two minutes on New Year's Day (Jan. 01, 2012) and according to their traffic counter, the site received only 644 hits during this time period, astute Van Halen fans were presented with the ad copy which will be published the Sunday before the album is released. Cover artwork is slightly different from the logos already published, depicting a train with the Van Halen logo in the top right corner. In the graphic published on Target.com, the angle of the train is altered, with Eddie Van Halen's "striping" effect added to the locomotive. The VH logo is still present in the upper right corner, and from the text below, the new album is alleged to read "Start Your Engines"

    Anyone have the photo with the striping effect?

    I dropped Glenn an email a week or so ago but not heard from him.

    The email didn't bounce so I assume he still uses it?
