The sleeve front and back features the singer's own exceptional psychedelic paintings. "Hints of Leonard Cohen and Bill Callahan_ Stunningly candid." The Telegraph Culture // Tuplin describes `Pink Mirror' as a "jovial sojourn through some of human nature's so-called dark sides.

It's a satirical look at representations of love, desire, vanity, society, the internet and more in the modern world.

For Tuplin, the pink mirror represents the rose-tinted spectacles through which we often view our world and/or our own places within it.

The album was recorded at Marketstall Recording Studio in South Bermondsey with Mark Estall, the sound-engineer and co-producer who worked on Tuplin's acclaimed first album, `I Dreamt I Was An Astronaut'.

Clash Music described `I Dreamt I Was An Astronaut' as a "cosmic gem". Tuplin was subsequently compared to such legends as Leonard Cohen, Bill Callahan, Nick Drake and `Space Oddity'-era Bowie.

Boomtown Fair music festival hailed him as "one of the founding fathers of the lesser known genre of space-folk." `Pink Mirror' brings it all back to earth, adding soundscapes and swells - and more guitar.
