Sony Music UK announced today the launch of The Colouring Sessions, a brand-new mindfulness project based around an ultimate online colouring book for any music lover. Helping to create an atmosphere of calm and relaxation with the help of music and creativity this unique online destination is jam-packed with templates of some of the world’s most iconic album covers to colour in. Created by Sony Music UK the site is designed to encourage everyone to take time out, drive focus and provide a moment of calm.
The Colouring Sessions have something for everyone, encompassing artists across all genres, with album cover templates ranging from Elvis and Jimi Hendrix to Judas Priest and Jamiroquai, from George Ezra and Little Mix to Foo Fighters. The site also hosts a series of specially created playlists to complement the colouring sessions, creating the ultimate music-lover’s mindful environment.
Talking about the inspiration behind the project, Heidi Boston-Thompson, Senior Digital Marketing Manager, Sony Music UK says: “We’re lucky to have a selection of some of the most beautiful, striking and creative album artwork of all time at our fingertips. We wanted to give our artists’ audiences the chance to take a moment out, explore their own creativity, drive focus and ultimately aid relaxation. By pairing music with the simple exercise of colouring in, we hope to create a mindful environment and a sense of calm for the audience.”
Both music and the act of colouring have a proven positive effect on mental health and wellbeing*. The Colouring Sessions are bringing the two together to create a unique atmosphere of mindfulness, taking a moment to stop and step away from the stresses of life, while encouraging creativity, focus and creating a state of relaxation.
Sean Bullingham, Pretty Good Digital, the design team behind The Colouring Sessions, says: “When we first heard the idea for The Colouring Sessions, we thought it was the perfect project to give people some respite from the ‘everyday’s-the same’ routine of lockdown. Like all of the best ideas, its beauty is in its simplicity; colouring and relaxing to music are universal qualities, combining the two to aid relaxation and uncluttering the mind seemed like a natural fit.”
For the programme, Sony Music UK has opened up their vast archive of beautiful, striking and creative album artwork from the past 70 years. The templates, which can be coloured digitally or printed at home, are available NOW via www.thecolouringsessions.com.
The finished creations can be shared with other music lovers on a dedicated gallery on the website.
