Here is the Strokes' new album cover
As we reported this week, the Strokes have officially dropped the first track from their forthcoming, long-awaited full-length "Angles."
And this is the artwork.
The piece is a work by Belgian artist Guy Pouppez, deceased in 1993. It's thought to be culled from the '60s or '70s.
"His work is basically unknown, as far as we [the band] know," the spokesperson explained to NME. "He was not a famous painter. The graphic designer who designed our album art found it through an art dealer she knows in France... We tracked down his only heir, his daughter, and she gave us the rights to use it so long as we wrote in the liner notes: 'Cover painting by Guy Pouppez courtesy of his daughter'."
"Angles," the rock outfit's fourth album, is due March 22.
