Cool Cover: Yogi‘s “Baby”
Details: This cover for Yogi’s “Baby (Yo Gotti Remix)” looks a lot like a poster for a great Bollywood film. Check out the reddish orange letters outlined with black, contrasting with the brick red behind the woman.

Cool Cover: AyanisDirection
Details: This one looks like it could wonderfully be straight out of the ’70s (except for the bike, possibly. I have no idea what kind of motorcycle that is). I love that outfit, and the lighting is so smooth for this photo.

Cool Cover: Jaira Burns ‘”Numb”
Details: Cover art for Jaira Burns’ newest single, “Numb,” features her lovely blue hair in a bridal veil. Also, check out the gold party spliff. The singer-songwriter from the US described the track as “. . . for the times when people get faded; not for the reason of having fun, but to feel “NUMB.”

Cool Cover: EVOKEN‘s Hypnagogia
Details: EVOKEN’s latest album, Hypnagogia, features a barn owl in a hazy setting. The New Jersey metal band chose World War I as the theme for the songs. One song’s titled “Schadenfreude,” and another is called “Ceremony Of Bleeding.” The title track takes its name from that also hazy moment right between being awake and falling asleep. Adam Burke, who created the cover’s design, is a Pacific Northwest-based artist. Go have a look at his work!

Cool Cover: Cosmic Kitten‘s Lobotomy
Details: Downey, California’s Cosmic Kitten keeps the cat theme going on their third album cover, featuring a purple cat performing a lobotomy on a person. Scary. Look at all those tubes. Could be fodder for nightmares, but cute cat.
