Album cover - Fanning - SoE

The album cover of Songs of Innocence puts quite a emphasis on 'LP', in fact the image IS of an LP record, and even then with marker there is written LP with a circle around it.

With Dave Fanning thinking that Songs Of Innocence is the first in a three-part series of albums in which they explore the 70s, 80s and 90s, I would say the album cover nicely underlines it.

But that could also imply that the next album will have a CD as a cover, and perhaps the third will be something like a 'digital download' perhaps?

The Fanning theory on three albums will sound more plausible when he stops being the only one touting it.

that would have to be a tape for the 80's and a CD for the 90's, I think

I interpreted the album cover to be a minimalist representation of innocence. White, plain, simple. Free of corruption and grandeur.

And that SOE may be flashier, colorful, and who knows....maybe that dance record they've been chirping about.

The cover to me just looks like a "demo" LP.

Yeah, I think it's sort of bogus to be honest.

With the date of 9/9/14 on the cover, I am assuming this cover is just for the Apple release, and we will see another cover for the retail version of the album.

When I first heard the title it popped into my head that it would be a trilogy - Innocence, Experience, and Ascent...then I realized that it was insane, SOA is dead. But I believed that Experience would follow, and it most likely will. I'm really excited to hear how it sounds.

This! Tim Cook even referenced it being a white label release. I expect the official release to have different cover art.

I think the physical release will 100% have different artwork - the note about the date is important but also remember the variations in artwork for most of the deluxe editions they've had. The question is how different will it be. I don't mind the current art but I do think it would look silly on a CD or vinyl. If it's different I'd bet it's still minimalist.

Why would it look silly on vinyl?

You know what the cover is, right?
