'It's basically just photographic,' says the frontman
The frontman, whose self-titled album is out today (October 4), chatted about the artwork in a video interview with NME, which you can watch on the right – with the second part embedded below.
“The artwork’s basically just photographic,” he said. “The front cover is basically me just taking a photograph in the mirror. Just because it’s a self-titled professional album and I’m just kind of naked and it just shows me how it is.”
He added: “I didn’t want to be clever about it. I thought the mirror thing’s quite clever, but I’ve been told that’s been done a lot.”
