Why Just One Album Cover ?

April 10, 2009

Thought to dwell on for the day.

In the age of direct relationships between fans and artists, why aren’t multiple fan-created release covers more common?

Let’s say you have some fans and you’re putting out a new ep.  Why not go threadless and have fans submit artwork.  The top three could be used and you could put one different live track on each just to make it interesting. Cover art really doesn’t have as much impact in the digital world, but the fan may think differently.  They are directly involved and participate in your creative expression. It’s a collaboration that offers more choice and enhances the overall experience a fan can have with you. It can create a strong bond and keep them with you as you grow.
