LOOK: OPM Album Covers Get a Modern Spin on This IG Account

SexBomb Girls' debut album takes a Chromatica-inspired turn.

ILLUSTRATION War Espejo

(SPOT.ph) Decades ago, it was common to see album covers looking very much alike, what with the closeup portraits paired with an elegant script or a legible sans serif font for the album and artist’s names. We’ve come a long way since then. The look of an album or even single's cover art is no longer limited to the portrait-superimposed-with-album-title template. Nowadays we see illustrated elements interspersed with images, handwriting, scenery, and minimalist—and sometimes literal—approaches. Case in point: BLACKPINK’s Square One EP.

Despite the popularity of digital formats in the past few years, physical copies haven’t been left behind when it comes to excellent paper executions: Imago’s 2007 album Blush had an accordion-type die-cut presentation, which makes it appear as though everyone is on the cover when folded, and Ben&Ben’s Limasawa Street in 2019, which doubles as a lamp. And while most artists are now on music-streaming platforms, cover art remains an important element in presenting a singer's sound.
