The genius of Martin Mull is celebrated by his longtime friend Steve Martin and Edie Brickell in a new album.
The new album “Love has Come For You” features cover art that was created by Mull, a fine artist, singer, actor and comedian, for Steve Martin and Edie Brickell’s new album out April 23rd on Rounder Records.
The cover features the painting (“After Dinner Drinks”, 2008) by Mull, whose work is a part of Steve Martin’s personal art collection.
Martin Mull’s oils, watercolors and drawings portray the discordant promises of post-World War II suburban America he grew up with. Mull’s painting was reproduced to create the video’s set design and serves as the backdrop for Steve and Edie’s conversation about their collaboration and connection to the art concept for the album.
VanityFair.com has previews of this collaboration.
Love Has Come For You has been described by GQ Magazine (UK) as “an astonishingly beautiful listen” and features Martin’s inventive five-string banjo work with Brickell’s distinctive vocals and vivid, detail-rich lyrics.
Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, featuring Edie Brickell will perform songs from their album Love Has Come for You on their North American tour, which kicks off on May 22 in Ft. Meyers, FL. Pre-orders of the album are currently available on iTunes and Amazon.
Martin Mull has landed one of the lead roles in “Dads,” a six-episode Fox comedy from the writer-producers behind the 2012 film “Ted”: Seth MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild.
The series is about two successful gamer entrepreneurs having their lives turned upside down by nightmare dads (Mull and Peter Riegert) unexpectedly moving in with them.
