10 Album Covers You Didn’t Know Were Created by Famous Artists

The Hours, generally

Artist: Damien Hirst

There was a whole lot of fuss made about Hirst designing the cover for the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album, but years before that, he assumed a kinda Warhol-ish svengali role with UK indie types The Hours, designing a series of skull-themed sleeves for their debut EP, debut album, and accompanying singles. We’ve included the album cover above — you can set the whole lot here, along with Hirst’s other cover art (most notably for Joe Strummer’s solo debut).
