The Hidden Truth in Famous Album Covers
Album covers have long been considered an art form in their own right. They communicate, enhance and create the first impression of the music to follow. In short, they are a BIG deal.
Artistic sketches, edgy graphics and iconic shots (The Beatles on Abbey Road, anyone?) have graced the front covers of the world’s greatest musical masterpieces. But what if there is more than meets the eye?
We assume that the perfect shot is the one we see plastered on the album and all its promotional material, but have you ever stopped to question whether or not there are deeper or darker meanings? Be honest. How many pictures have you posted on Instagram, crop and filter free? I’m guessing not many, and the same goes for album covers.
