The album cover art, created by Ritxi Ostáriz, has been revealed and is now available below. At this point, there is still not much more revealed in terms of lyrics or concept.
Earlier this year, Ihsahn announced that he was already working on the follow-up to Eremita. In his latest update, the Norwegian musician has revealed that the new album is finished already!

You can expect an autumn release but the exact date and title will be announced later.
A couple of months ago, the release of the charity single "We Are" was announced for July 18th (Mandela Day). The single "We Are" features vocals from Serj Tankian and Ihsahn, as well as guitar solos by Devin Townsend. For the ones who are curious to see how these musicians merged for this Revolution Harmony project, now you can. Listen to the song from this dream collaboration right now on the official lyric video below.
Ray Holroyd, British music lecturer and journalist, will be joined by Serj Tankian, Devin Townsend and Ihsahn for the first single from his new project Revolution Harmony in what sounds like a dream collaboration. The purpose of the project is to bring aid in the form of free music lessons and instruments for the children of South Africa.
Even with last year's release Eremita fresh on people's minds, Ihsahn is already hard at work on new material for a new album. Tobias Ørnes Andersen from Leprous has already recorded the drum parts for it at the Juke Joint Studio. According to Ihsahn's label Candlelight Records, his fifth solo record will be recorded in the coming months and is tentatively set for release later this year in the autumn.
Eremita, the freshly released new solo album from former Emperor mastermind Ihsahn is currently streaming online exclusively and entirely at AOL Music. Eremita hit stores yesterday in Europe and comes out today in North America via Candlelight Records.
"Introspection", the brand new single from Ihsahn has debuted at GuitarWorld.com. Head over to that location to check it out. The song also features guest vocals from Devin Townsend and comes off Ihsahn's upcoming album entitled Eremita, which will be released on June 18th in Europe and June 19th in North America via Candlelight Records. More details about the album were previously reported here.
Candlelight Records today confirms June 18th as the European release date, and the 19th of June for North America for Eremita, the anticipated fourth album from Norwegian-born vocalist/guitarist Ihsahn.
Legendary guitarist Jeff Loomis has been in the studio the last few months working on his highly anticipated sophomore solo album, to be released later this year. Since entering the studio, Loomis has revealed a number of notable guests that will be appearing on the release and now, Loomis announces the newest special guest: Ihsahn, formerly of Norwegian black metal band Emperor and current solo artist.
Ihsahn - black metal innovator and all round creative genius - will be doing some guest vocals on the new Devin Townsend album, entitled Decontruction.
The ex-Emperor main-man had the following to say: "I have been a long time fan of Devin and his work, and when he asked me to do some vocals for his upcoming Deconstruction album, I said yes right away. Devin is one of those few uncompromising artists who goes anywhere with their music, wherever that takes them. Nothing but respect!"
In other news, Ihsahn will play at the Kabuto Metal Festival in Japan this spring for the first time ever. Accompanied with the guys in Leprous, they will play Namba Hatch in Osaka on May 21 and May 22 at Studio Coast in Tokyo.
Candlelight Records/Mnemosyne Productions today confirmed 25th of January as the European release date for After, and the 26th of January in America the new album from former Emperor vocalist/guitarist Ihsahn. Recorded during the first half of 2009, After completes the musician's planned trilogy of initial recordings. The album showcases the Norwegian icon with drummer Asgeir Mickelson (Spiral Architect), bassist Lars K. Norberg (Spiral Architect), & saxophonist Jorgen Munkeby (Shining).
"This is my first album written with 8-string guitars as basis which has been both challenging and inspiring," he comments when discussing the creative process. "I also decided early on that I wanted to mix this album with Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia) and recorded the album with that in mind. Asgeir and Lars have again delivered superb performances. I've always wanted to implement the saxophone in my music; Jorgen's contributions truly added a silver lining to the album."
