“Almost as interesting as the music is the album cover. I remember when growing up,
every time we got a new album, we would pore over every detail of the cover, back cover and inside flap while listening to a record. It’s just as much an extension of the musician as the music itself… especially when he or she taps a favorite artist to concoct something unexpected. Here, some of my favorites, past and present, like Janelle Monáe’s The ArchAndroid, 2010, and The Electric Lady, 2013, a mix of witty visuals and great sounds.” — Tory

Sonic Youth’s 1983 Daydream Nation cover was done by Gerhard Richter, one of my favorite artists.
