What about the covers? no 16

For 2009 - The Ballet - Bear Life

I have no data for this one, the album is self-released and no information can be found on the group's website. It keeps up with previous artwork from their releases though. Quirky and fun like the group!

For the 00's - Justin Timberlake - Futuresex/Lovesounds

Doug Lloyd is the creative mastermind behind the look of this album. with photography by the talented and iconoclastic Terry Richardson, a bit of a strange choice for a major commercial pop star like Justin. Both artists were picked for their stylish but tough style of work. They are both names very familiar to fashion cognoscenti, with numerous ad campaigns and covers under their belt. The result is a very glamorous cover, a bit subversive (the discoball breaking) but safe enough for mass consumption. And Justin changes his image for good kid next door to major fashionista.
