  • 6. Pop album covers always include the artist of the music, typically as the main, if not only, feature of the cover, usually positioned in the centre. Similarly, the name of the album and artist are also almost always included on the covers of pop albums. The image itself on the cover is usually a photograph, rather than an illustration, though exceptions are seen in artists such as Mika, however most modern day pop albums are photographs. The variation in these covers appears in the attire and/or expression of the artist, the lighting, and the backdrop, and indicates the tones of the album. Analysis
