Re-Covered: Sally Anne’s Illustrated Favourite Albums

If you’re anything like us, throughout Lockdown you may have been seeking refuge in some of your favourite records, perhaps rediscovering some old classics along the way. So, for this new feature, illustrator Sally-Anne Hickman re-imagines her favourite ten albums of all time by painting their covers in her own unique style, using watercolours.

Check out the fourth of Sally-Anne’s choices below, and keep your eyes peeled for the rest over the next few weeks…

Smashing Pumpkins- Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
This incredible alt-rock concept album, ten times platinum, has it all. Its stylistic range is so varied that it opens with a sweeping piano instrumental and takes us on a sonic journey that encompasses layers of heavily distorted guitars with orchestral strings. Twenty eight songs in length, none sound the same but they are all unmistakably Pumpkins tracks. Heavy rock epics with phenomenal drumming, electronic pop tunes, operatic themes with time signature shifts that leave you with whiplash!
