"I heard this from a person who was called in to work on the cover. The person said that an official announcement is likely coming pretty soon. Jeff is apparently at the point of picking an image for the album cover. The person doesn't know exactly what's planned, but things seem to be sort of on a fast-track now. His guess is an official announcement is coming fairly soon. Apparently other stuff [ELO? Idle Race? Move?] is also being worked on. And for the record, he said this is not a tease or wishful thinking. It's real! I have read information elsewhere giving sly hints about this, but the release date was never mentioned so I was skeptical. But this sounds like the real deal. Is anyone as excited as I am? The latest rumors are that the word "satellite" is in the album title and that it could be released in May, although I doubt it because the marketing campaign has not yet begun.
I hope I put this in the right place, no one seems to be interested. Anyway ... here is the news, in case you thought it was just another rumour. "From what I understand, the music is done. [Although Jeff loves to mess around in the studio until he thinks it's just right.] Now it's down to putting it all together - formats, cover art , promotional material, etc." Now how long does that take? I hope they get the marketing right this time."
