Poll: I Am Not A Dog On A Chain album cover - How shit is it?
I think it's WIP...a tester sample or pilot, whatever, not final.
If it helps, It's Over (when given away last Feb) appeared with the California Son artwork attached to the Spotify / MP3 store downloads.
There is a post practically identical to today's track and 'possible album sleeve reveal' and it was the final, official album art.
I personally think the furore over the cover of Low In High School (the HMV 'censorship' stuff) lead to head shots becoming used.
No real issues with clearance for rights or anything too taxing. This cover, however, is very similar to This Is Morrissey and it would have been nice to see something more current. That said, I see discussions elsewhere already blaming SER for someone else's picture from 10+ years ago
