Vinyl Me, Please Commissions New Album Art for Classic Records as a Reminder to the Connection Between Art and Music #MusicMonday

NewImage

From The Creators Project:

A treasure trove of original illustrations inspired by great albums is hidden in the archives of a Boulder, CO record club. Vinyl Me, Please (VMP), a group of vinylheads who, “believe in the power of the album as an art form,” mail a monthly custom-pressed record with extras like posters, stickers, and custom cocktail recipes. With every package, VMP asks an artist to create a custom artwork inspired by the album. October’s was Lemon of Pink by The Books, for which New Jersey-based artist William ‘Zoe’ FitzGerald created a metallic print with glitchy haunted house vibes.

“Vinyl as a medium is a constant reminder of the interplay between the visual and musical parts of an album in creating a unique piece of art. In finding a visual artist each month we’re looking not only for an aesthetic that matches the music, but also the ability of the artist to capture the album in a new light,” Cameron Schaefer, head of music and label relations at VMP, tells The Creators Project. “Whether it be simply reinterpreting existing album art or creating something less specific and referential, we are ardent believers in the ability of visual elements to create a new context for listening.”
