Good Charlotte's new album CARDIOLOGY will feature cover art from reclusive artist DANIEL MARTIN DIAZ after bassist Benji Madden wrote to him and asked him to consider a commission.
The rocker was thrilled when his art idol replied - because he rarely accepts album cover jobs.
Madden says, "He's my favourite artist in the world. He does religion-based pop-surrealism. A lot of people approach him to design album covers, but he hasn't done one in over 10 years.
"I blindly emailed him... on his website. I told him that I was in a dark place during our last record, but that in the last two years I fell in love with music all over again.
"He came down and listened to some rough mixes and agreed to do it. It's my dream come true."
