You’ve probably seen Snoopify, Snoop Dogg’s app which superimposes large spliffs and dollar chains on to self-taken photographs. Well, as it’s Christmas, we’ve decided to Christmasify albums covers from 2013, starting with Arctic Monkeys’ ‘AM’.
Babyshambles’s album artwork for ‘Sequel To The Prequel’ was designed by Damien Hirst.
Leif Podhajsky designed the original artwork for Foals’ ‘Holy Fire’ album cover. He also created the art for Tame Impala’s ‘Lonerism’ in 2012 and Mount Kimbie’s ‘Cold Spring Fault Less Youth’.
“In theory then, debut album ‘Silence Yourself’ is flawless. Just see its monochrome sleeve – even their eyebrows look deeply important.” (NME’s Review – Eve Barlow)
A subtle Christmasification, a bit like Chance The Rapper’s sleuth rise to the top.
Thankfully the quality of Danny Brown’s album did not mirror the quality of the album artwork.
Bashful, Dopey, Happy, Sneezy?
Absent from many end-of-year lists is Tyler, The Creator’s ‘Wolf’, his second studio album released in April.
Disclosure started the year not being very keen on showing their faces – but now you can buy these Christmas tree decorations at all good supermarkets nationwide (wouldn’t that be great?).
Earlier this year Jay Z tried to draw attention away from the patchy music of ‘Magna Carter Holy Grail’ by unveiling the artwork at Salisbury Cathedral, next to one of the four remaining copies of the actual Magna Carta itself.
That Bobby Gillespie deserves a bunch of Crimbo presents for Primal Scream’s latest ‘More Light’.
Push the snow away.
Kanye West, even you can be Christmasified.
The cover art for the latest Vampire Weekend album is a 1966 photograph by Neal Boenzi of the smoggiest day in New York City history, on which the air pollution killed at least 169 people.
The cover of the latest Sigur Rós album, Kveikur, is a photograph by Brazilian artist Lygia Clark, taken in 1967.
