(July 16, 2014) – As Counting Crows gear up for the release of their highly-anticipated seventh studio album, Somewhere Under Wonderland, the band will be revealing live chalk drawings of album artwork by 3D chalk artist Chris Carlson throughout US Cities.

The artwork for “Palisades Park,” the first song released off Somewhere Under Wonderland was revealed on July 9 in Denver, CO while Carlson rendered a live 3D chalk drawing in front of Twist and Shout Records (Link to artwork timelapse: For each city’s artwork reveal, fans will participate in a digital scavenger hunt by finding visual clues on Counting Crows and Capitol’s social media platforms. Video footage of the drawing process and audio clips of the track will be released on Counting Crow’s social networks following each artwork reveal.

Felipe Molina has worked with Counting Crows before, providing the cover art for their 2003 live album, New Amsterdam: Live at Heineken Music Hall. This time around, each song onSomewhere Under Wonderland has an individual painting inspired by the lyrics and music. Molina explains, “I have always thought of my paintings as “picture poems,” butSomewhere Under Wonderland is the first time that I have made paintings specifically for Counting Crows’ songs. Each song elicited a visual response from me that was immediate and sure. I was also motivated by the constant communication with Adam as we saw his remarkable record come to life in a visual way.”

The first song on the album “Palisades Park” is available now on iTunes with the purchase of the full album at The short film of “Palisades Park,” directed by Bill Fishman, is also available now and can be seen at Fans can order limited-edition versions of the album with an art book or art portfolio directly from the band at and at Amazon.
