This coincides with Meat’s signing to 429 Records who have stated on their site that the singer suggested it would serve as a career-capping statement, saying in a press release, “I can’t think of a better way to round out my music career than having another opportunity to work once again with songwriters I so admire.”

On his Facebook page, Meat released this promo image which he confirms is not the artwork that will be used on the release of the album.
