Déjà Vu: Lil Wayne vs. Silence of the Lambs

Rapper Lil Wayne revealed the cover art for his forthcoming album on his official Facebook page yesterday. It definitely caused a déjà vu moment.

DONDA, creative content company founded by Kanye West, releases the album artwork for Lil Wayne’s upcoming upcoming album “I Am Not A Human Being II” to be released via Cash Money/Republic Records worldwide on March 26, 2013.

The cover features an illustration of a Death’s-head Hawkmoth, which was popularized in the 1991 film The Silence of the Lambs. The moth was featured on the film’s poster and the cover of the album of the score by Howard Shore.

Lost Sirens by New Order voted best album cover for the week of January 22, 2013

According to our AlbumArtExchange Blog poll, the best album cover for the week of January 22, 2013 is Lost Sirens by New Order. The cover received 40% of the voted cast by our readers. Wolf’s Law by The Joy Formidable was second with 30%. Aaron Neville’s My True Story was a distant third with 10%.

The winning cover demonstrates that a simple design can often generate a great deal of interest. It is just nine squares of different color. However, the result is quite sophisticated. When I first saw it posted on Amazon.com. it immediately caught my eye. I am not surprised that it won.

Album Art Flashback: Disco Inferno by The Trammps

The first thing that you may notice about the cover illustration for the 1976 album Disco Inferno by The Trammps is that it looks more like something from the New Wave era of the 1980s. The green leopard pattern to the neon pink was certainly years ahead of its time.

The album became popular a year after its release, when the title track was included in the hit film Saturday Night Fever. The cover illustration was created by L.A.-based artist Charles White III. White has produced several album covers over a decades-long career. The most noteworthy is the cover for the U.S. release of Gentle Giant’s 1972 album Octopus. The UK version of the album features an illustration by Roger Dean. White’s version is an octopus in a Mason jar.

White also created movie posters for Star Wars and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. His work has appeared in magazines and major advertising campaigns.
