Cover art for Kris Allen’s Thank You Camellia revealed

The cover art for Kris Allen’s forthcoming album was revealed via press release yesterday. Thank You Camellia is scheduled to be released on May 22, 2012.

The press release did not include credits for the art director or the photographer. I do not really like the composition of the image. The dog is cute. However, it always bothers me to see the subjects of a photograph looking toward an edge of the image rather than toward the center. If Allen and the dog were looking in the opposite direction, it would be a very cool photo.Otherwise, it looks as if something has been arbitrarily cropped off.

Déjà Vu: Marilyn Manson vs. Tiny Tim

With apologies to Marilyn Manson fans, the first thing that I thought of when I saw the cover of Manson’s forthcoming album, Born Villain, was the cover of Tiny Tim’s 1980 album Chameleon. Born Villain is scheduled to be released on May 1, 2012.

“On tiptoe, through the tulips, with a machine gun. Won’t you murder me?”

Déjà Vu: Neon Trees vs. Glasvegas

The cover for the forthcoming album Picture Show by Neon Trees is almost identical to the one used for the oddly named 2011 release EUPHORIC /// HEARTBREAK \\\ by Glasvegas. Picture Show is scheduled to be released on April 17, 2012.

Wacky Album Cover of the Evening

censored-d.jpg

This Wacky Album Cover of the Evening is a bit different and requires some editorial content. The cover for Rize of the Fenix, the forthcoming third album by Kyle Gass and Jack Black as Tenacious D, features a bird that is designed to look like a penis. There’s really no point in being coy about it. It could not be more obvious.

There is a censored version of the cover (right). However, it seems to more of a joke. The uncensored version is being used by most online retailers. Not only that, an elaborate Flash animation featuring the artwork has been posted on the album’s official website at http://rizeofthefenix.com.

The website includes a preview of the album’s title track. It is worth a look. Just be aware that it is NSFW. In addition to the penis bird, the f-word is used several times in the song. The album is scheduled to be released on May 15, 2012.
