New (old) Bowie cover

Jonathan Barnbrook answers a few questions about the cover he designed for David Bowie’s new album.

“It also has the existential element of Waiting for Godot with waiting for The Next Day – these all seem to question the nature of existence so a monochrome palette seemed most appropriate to this feeling” etc etc.

Love a bit of post-rationalisation nonsense. Also questioning (again) what an album cover actually is these days. Do people still buy music that has a cover?
