Challenging the norm of album artwork with this brilliant painting

The music business may be mainly about downloads these days, but a decent album cover design remains vital to the success of a new release, and a recent revival in vinyl has guaranteed a future for the discipline. Every week we'll be picking our favourite new album artwork, and today we take a look at 'Bubblegum' from Kevin Devine.

The painting 'Melted George Washington 2' was created by artist Valerie Hegarty - giving a stark contrast to the usual, traditional paintings. The album layout was taken care of by Chris Bracco, with a gorgeous glittery purple record to finish things off.

We love that Hegarty's painting challenges the norm of traditional portraits, mimicking Devine's musical output.
