Cover Story: A tale of two covers
A look at the cover of the new Gossip CD, Music For Men (out June 22):
Beautiful. That's a surprise after Beth Ditto being the face of The Gossip for so long. Now Hannah gets her moment. Does it remind you a bit of Eg & Alice's CD cover below? That's the band that songwriter Eg White (Will Young, Adele, etc) had with Alice Temple in the early 90's. Absolutely lost classic, that album.
Meanwhile, Freemasons issued a cover for their monolithic track with La Bex...
Looks like a hair care ad, no? Like she's a Breck or Wella Balsam girl. I actually prefer the fan-made cover that appeared earlier this year in the PopJustice Forums:
Suitably lollipop-headed. I love a pretty alien.
