“The combination of turn-of-the-century equipment and processes in my studio creates amazing results in this project which blends technology and tradition together” says Smith, the traditional ornamental glass artist from UK, who created the artwork for Mayer’s latest album.
And as Mayer describes, “The album cover is the last expression of what anything else looks like other than the way your music sounds. You can own a person’s album on iTunes, be a huge fan, listen to their record all day but never see their video, never see the live show and also never see any of their liner notes, just the cover as it comes up on your iPhone, or iPod. So then I realized, the most important thing is just that cover. Everyone who listen to the record will see that cover.”
