Graham Coxon A&E Cover Art Revealed

Graham Coxon's newest album A+E unveiled its album cover today, very different, unique and a just a little bit unsettling. This cover seems to pay homage to older, 80s, oldies, retro styled bands like Talking Heads, especially the font type, and features a low-resolution image of legs and an accident.

One fan even suggested that "Graham cut himself shaving", and has interesting typefaces of red and black on the top and bottom of the cover.

Similar fonts to Talking Heads ?

Here's just a comparison to his previous 7 albums, all of which feature Graham Coxon's own original artwork and paintings. His 8th album has a very different color, and according to Graham, has a very different theme and style in music too. He also mentioned in an interview that he wanted to experiment with photo manipulation and editing, and it's no surprise that this cover features a photography instead of any drawings.
