Four Covers Unveiled for New Nine Inch Nails Album
The new Nine Inch Nails album "Hesitation Marks" will feature four variant covers, each created by artist Russell Mills, Metal Hammer notes. Talking about the pieces, Mills stated: "The artworks, (30 mixed media pieces) that I eventually produced towards uses in the 'Hesitation Marks' releases, evolved out of lengthy exchanges between myself and Trent [Reznor] and in response to the conceptual ideas that thread through the tracks and to the sonic territory that the album explores. "I've tried to lock into the album's prevailing mood and echo the album's essence. The ideas are not communicated in a literal or easily digested form, as this would be boring for me and would insult the intelligence of a potential audience. I've tried to make works that obliquely allude to the essence of the subject matter, to its emotional core. "As with my self-initiated works the paintings, assemblages, collages and multimedia installations personal ideas and obsessions seep into these works. The organic, the natural, prevailing over or feeding into the industrial, the man made, is a common theme in my work generally and in this instance was particularly apt for the art required." Here are four cover versions for different release formats:
"Turn and Burn," digital album cover (plaster, earth, oils, acrylics, etching varnish, bitumen, burning, rusted linen, blood, spent matches, on wood)
"Cargo in the Blood," deluxe CD cover (Burning, Polaroid frame, copper wire, mica, on velvet, on wood)
"Time and Again," standard CD cover (Plaster, earth, oils, acrylics, etching varnish, rusted linen, blood, microscope slides, on wood)
"Other Murmurs," vinyl cover (Plaster, earth, oils, acrylics, etching varnish, collage, on canvas, on wood)
