Artwork for album (scroll down to bottom of page)

David Bowie Announces New Album, The Next Day, Releases Single, Video, Turns 66 | News | Pitchfork


also, no plans for interviews either..


from the designer of the artwork:
Quote:
Artwork!Look closely at the artwork for 'Where Are We Now?' and you'll notice it's actually an inverted live photo from the 'Young Americans' period. Meanwhile, the artwork for 'The Next Day' is a doctored version of the 'Heroes' single sleeve. It's wonderful to see Bowie referencing his own earlier career, somehow it makes this whole surprise comeback seem even more special. And while we're on the subject, how incredible is it that he managed to record and plan the release of an entire album without anyone spilling the secret? Too perfect.

Album sleeve designer Jonathan Barnbrook has blogged about his work:

Normally using an image from the past means, ‘recycle’ or ‘greatest hits’ but here we are referring to the title The Next Day. The “Heroes” cover obscured by the white square is about the spirit of great pop or rock music which is ‘of the moment’, forgetting or obliterating the past. Obscuring Bowie’s image is also reference to his identity, not only in the past when he changed endlessly but that he has been absent from the music scene for the past ten years. Was this an act to hide is identity or that he has simply become more comfortable with his own identity?

Clearly an homage to No Line's cover.

Well.. I have.. He's not even doing interviews.. Just new music so I guess I'm happy with that.

That's all well and good, but it looks like it was made in MS Paint. Terrible. I'm assuming it's a joke.

Anyway, I've already listened to Low, Station to Station, and "Heroes" today. On Ziggy now. Can't stop. Won't stop.

It's black and white though. Probably more of an homage to Rattle and Hum. Though I guess he could be trying to do a double homage and rip U2 off twice.

Yeah I just saw that new cover... I have to assume it's a joke because it's horrible. The font is Arial for fuck's sake.

I listened to Aladdin Sane on the way home from work yesterday and Ziggy today. Many more to come. What a man.

I'd say that's a safe assumption, yes.

Only had a chance to listen to Low today, but I'll make up for that soon.

I smiled sadly
For a love I could not obey
And Lady Stardust sang his songs of darkness and dismay
