Wow – I can’t even drive home from work without missing breaking news these days, but this is news I’m happy to come home to! Here’s the cover for FYE, and I LOVE IT!!! It’s colorful, stunning, attention-getting, and beautiful – all the things a book cover or album cover should be! So much better than just the usual photo of the recording artist staring blankly into the camera lens. I love the celestial background, the blue hair, the makeup – everything! I have to say that while I wasn’t thrilled with the album title, I’ve gotten used to it, and the cover more than makes up for any misgivings I previously had.
This is a work of art – totally befitting Adam. I don’t think this cover – or Adam – is meant to represent reality. Art takes the elements of light, color, and composition to illicit an emotional response, and that’s what this does. This takes us out of our hum-drum lives to a place of fantasy and limitless possibilities – the “sky” is literally the limit. And I don’t see the makeup as “girly” but simply as beautiful. “Manly” or “girly” doesn’t matter – it’s not about gender, but about a universality that embraces all. This cover art is brilliant. I had high expectations, but this shattered my expectations!
Adam just tweeted “Glam is back!!!” And how, baby!
What do you think?
