Record Sleeves Of The Month

Above is the cover of Kala, M.I.A.’s new album on XL Recordings. And isn’t it perfectly SuperSupersuited to the times? Brash use of colours: check. Seeming disregard for any classical design tenets: check… The artwork is a mix of M.I.A.’s own input along with graphics by Carri Mundane and Steve Loveridge. Photography by Janette Beckman, Liz Johnson-Artur, Michael Kamber and M.I.A. herself
We’ve seen lots of great sleeves in the last few weeks. Bright colours and illustrated forms seem to be flavour of the month…
