Beirut - The Rip Tide (2011)

Introduction:

I had a hard time deciding but I thought I would pick an album that could use a better cover. Beirut's The Rip Tide has pretty much no design to it so I can't get swayed by the current design.

I'll upload a mood board shortly!

Initial Sketch:

I want to keep the cover simple but offer an idea of what the music sounds like to me. I love the horns and find them to be distinct part of who they are. Tying it to a concept of water since it's called The Rip Tide, I thought I would start with the basic idea of a horn being carried off to sea. Once I've taking this idea to the computer I figured it might spark more depth to the concept. The typography will have a nice space to breathe in the sky.

Final (Maybe) Cover: With Texture
