20 Awesome Alternative Album Sleeves From NME Illustrator Jimmy Turrell

  • Regular NME magazine readers will know that in each issue, we take a big release from that week and reimagine its artwork. Here's a few of our favourites from the last few months, courtesy of illustrator Jimmy Turrell. Call us big-headed but some of them - whisper it - we reckon may be even better than their original sleeves. Take this spin on the new St. Vincent LP, for example.
