Lately music album covers almost lose their importance as less and less people buy CDs, as they download and buy music online. However, even if you downloaded a song from the web, the album cover displays on your music player screen while playing a song.
That’s great, as album cover can be really impressive and convey a message of the whole album in various creative ways. So, here we have collected 20 creative album cover designs. Some of them are really genius and have been released, while the others were created just for fan inspired by music. You’ll see these album covers use illustrations, photography, bold typography and colors to illustrate sounds of music hiding inside a cover.
