Album Art for Spoon’s “They Want My Soul” Is an Homage to ’70s Thrillers
We haven’t listened to Spoon’s upcoming album They Want My Soul yet, but judging by its album art it must have an interesting concept behind it. The images, taken by photographer Todd Baxter, paint the picture of a bizarre sci-fi triller. And according to Baxter, that’s the point: “The idea was for the images to feel like film stills from a 70s psychological thriller (inspired by lots of films from that era). We planned the images to coincide with a possible music video that would be in the style of a trailer for the movie.” If Baxter’s name sounds familiar, you might remember his Owl Scouts: Lost in the Woods series that went viral a few months back.
