Animal Collective don’t settle for anything but originality when it comes to their cover art — see everything from Merriweather Post Pavilion to Strawberry Jam to their EP People. So it shouldn’t be all that surprising that they’ve come up with the above for their next album, Centipede Hz, out September 3 in the UK and the following day stateside. I don’t know about you, but I’m seeing a bunch of different things in this cover — the left corner of the mouth, for instance, looks like a cross between van Gogh’s The Starry Night and The Great Gatsby‘s artwork, while the image in the center of the mouth is somehow reminding me of Pantera (?) — and I don’t really know what to make of them all. But that’s probably the point. Check here for more on Centipede Hz.
