It was in a hot contest with the second place winner, Luxury Problems by Andy Scott, which received 37%. Aerosmith’s Music from Another Dimension! was a distant third with 9%.
I was not able to find credits for the art direction and photography for the winning cover. It features a retro black and white photograph of Minogue holding a vintage microphone.
A few months ago, a reader described my preference for the artwork used for singles to integrate with the music video as a fetish. I suppose that may be accurate to a certain degree, especially when it involves my favorite pop stars. Kylie Minogue has not disappointed me with the artwork for her new single Timebomb. It coordinates perfectly with the music video. Both were released as a package on iTunes today.
