Swedish hard rockers Europe will release a special edition 140-page coffee-table book in August. Entitled "Live Look At Eden", it will feature pictures following the Europe bandmembers on their latest continental tour, as seen through the lens of legendary rock photographer Denis O'Regan.
The book will be offered in two sizes: a large "earbook" and an "earbook mini." The large format book will include the studio album "Last Look At Eden", a live CD recorded in London, Warsaw and Stockholm, and also a DVD with footage shot live at the iTunes festival in London. The mini book will include the live audio CD and DVD only. A very limited number of large books will also be offered personally signed by all bandmembers.
Europe's latest album, "Last Look At Eden", was certified gold in Sweden for sales in excess of 20,000 copies.
Note: The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) in Sweden has revised the sales requirements for albums to reach gold status in the country twice in the last eight years — from the pre-2002 level of 40,000 to the current 20,000.
"Last Look At Eden" entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 31. It also topped the Swedish chart in its first week of release.
"Last Look At Eden" was released in Germany on September 18, 2009 via earMUSIC/Edel Germany GmbH. The CD was issued in the U.K. on September 14. 2009.
From the epic title track to the melodic ballad "New Love in Town", this album is on another level, less extreme than previous offering, 2006's "Secret Society", and with matured sound, "Last Look at Eden" is a mix of all the elements that have made Europe famous the world over.
