The Fray Covers Album (click to see full-size)
We recently made this album cover with The Fray. They had self-produced an EP album of covers—which is one of my favorite things they’ve recorded—and they asked us to design the album cover.
The artwork concept we pitched is a fairly obvious pun — covers album, all covered up, get it? — but we had a ton of fun over a long weekend making it, and really love how it came out. Along with Ben (the drummer) and a few friends’ help, we wrapped literally every piece of equipment they own in their studio with white vinyl and built it all up into the background for the cover shot. We worked with photographer Michelle Wysocki to capture the final composition.
Check out the short time lapse video below that shows us making the whole thing and features their (wicked) cover of Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Maps.
