The cover will be twelve yellow stars on a blue background.

"Super" was alright, but too simplistic for my tastes.
Nowadays, the bugdget is not too big for PSB.

I don't think it was the production on Super that was "simplistic"... it was that the majority of songs lacked the song-craft we'd expect from a Tennant/Lowe composition.

They are both multi millionaires. If they want to self finance a project, then money certainly wouldn't be an issue.. They care too much about their art to worry about saving a few pounds/dollars ect..
Do you know the difference between the two genders..?

Exactly, PSB of all artists would be the ones not skimping on a project, just to save a couple - remember, they were losing money on their first world tour.
Have a look at my taste in music:

That’s the thing about negative energy, about hatred. It can be positive. It throws into relief all the things you know you like. It tells you, by elimination, what you’re about. Sometimes you can only define yourself by what you hate. Hatred becomes an inspiration; it makes you think, “What I’m doing now I totally believe in, and I don’t care what other people say.” Guided by hatred, you don’t have to follow the herd. - Neil Tennant

You could be onto something Nickname. Have you seen the album cover “tweets” on the Soxial Media video? The only unrecognised one is one with triangles....

Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

I could totally see that cover for the final album in the trilogy, which is supposed to include darker, more reflexive songs.

Would be nice to see this as a dark techno album with the white shapes as „cut-outs“ for the vinyl package.

Thought that one was referencing the Fundamental era, with a black background and what could be white neon tubes. But I'm probably wrong! :lol:

I think they gave up the dark techno thing and that's why they put all the political songs in Agenda, including the very sad TFC. The triangle cover appears only once and if they feel "empowered" it may not be more sad or dark than Super.
