If this is it, I like it.

Sombre!

High hopes for an electro, thematically moody album.

I'm not keen on the album cover photo. :down: It gives me a headache to be honest! The black and white photo that belongs to part on the forum on here is much better. (One of the forum headers).

Love the photo, especially if they pair it with some sort of neony fluorescenty typepgraphy, but I suspect this isn’t strikingly SHARP enough to slide into the aesthetic of the current trilogy. I would be delighted to be wrong though. Have they ever really had a muddy/beigey sleeve? Nightlife, I suppose.

I don’t like it either - doesn’t match the theme of Electric and Super. Surely it has to be white background with simple coloured shape!

Perfect album cover, hopefully. There is no way it was posted with no purpose.
I've been around the world for a number of reasons. I've seen it all the change of seasons, and I, my lord, may I say nothing?

it's very cool and conveys an ethereal feeling

and for the people who are 'why is it blurred' - my god, get a grip

this is art - the connection between how something looks and how it makes you feel... in this case, you have two people in the autumn of their years, fading out of existence... it's very moving

I'm so hungry for news that my heart jumped when I saw an Instagram notification... and it's just some more of "Dreamland" promo. Come on Boys!

If the album sounds like other electronic albums recorded at Hansa, such as the 70s Bowie ones and some of the mid-eighties Depeche Mode ones, that photo would suit it well.

Looks like something Neil would snap on his phone at Frieze Art Fair.
