Cher reveals Closer to the Truth album cover

Cher revealed the cover for her forthcoming album Closer to the Truth via her official Facebook page today. Many fans were surprised that Cher chose to wear a blonde wig for the cover. She also wore a sheer white negligee. It almost looks like a 1970s boudoir photograph. Closer to the Truth is scheduled to be released on September 24, 2013. It will be Cher’s 26th solo studio album and her first album in 12 years.

Fortunate Fall by Audrey Assad voted best album cover for the week of August 13, 2013

According to our AlbumArtExchange Blog poll, the best album cover for the week of August 13, 2013 is Fortunate Fall by Audrey Assad. The cover was the clear winner, with 58% of the votes cast by our readers. Life Unheard by the late Johnny Cash was a distant second with 28% of the vote. Pushin’ Against a Stone by Valerie June was third with 15%.

I was not able to find credits for art direction and design for the winning cover. It is a stunning collage created from leaves and flower petals that depicts a bird. It really is an interesting concept for an album cover.
