Talking Heads – Best Animated Album Covers
'Remain in Light'
Talking Heads were ready to dispel the idea in 1980 that they were David Byrne and "three other musicians." Not only was their album a more collaborative effort, they wanted to drive the point home by having all four members appear on the 'Remain in Light' album cover.
They turned the artwork over to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where computers were able to design the red-faced artwork which still kept the band members somewhat anonymous. The animator intensifies the red faces for further effect and has some fun with the "A" in the band's name by letting it switch back and forth between upright and upside down status in the title card.
