Released in Australia by Warner, in the US through Sire and in the Europe by East West, A Million Year Girl comes with award winning cover artwork. On the front is a photo of Max with a gorgeous ocean/gorge-scape behind her and a wooden doll house in front. The inner sleeve opens out as if you are opening the doors into the doll house - it then transferring you into a fantastic and mysterious kingdom.
Released and produced independently by Max Sharam as a teaser for her tour with Cyndi Lauper, the EP features a mix of the song Belle of The Ball, based on the story of 'The Prom Mom', (Melissa Drexler) who gave birth in a bathroom at her Prom. All songs are written by Max Sharam. An independent art video was created for the song Hysteria and an animated short is being made for Belle of The Ball.
The EP has a gatefold cover in sepia tones. On the front is a picture of Max laying with the Lion of Lucerne, familiar to Max after living in Switzerland in the mid 80's. The centrefold image is Mermax! along with the lyrics to the songs. The EP version has been discontinued, however the lucky few may find copies online.
He hijacked my heart, and took it apart, just to see what he could see. Were you so blind? Oh you needed glasses - I opened up my safe for you to see. Oh were you so blind? I would never let you down you're the only man to know the kind of loving I need.
Permanent Resident - Single
Produced and released independently by Purple Flower Music, the song was originally written for the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, directed by Julian Schnabel—the true story of French ELLE editor, Jean-Dominique Bauby, who suffered a stroke and lived with locked-in syndome; only his left eye wasn't paralyzed and so he was able to communicate using one eye. Using appropriated imagery, paintings by Frida Kahlo and collage Max animated the music video.
