Nine Inch Nails Releases 4 Different Album Covers For ‘Hesitation Marks’

Take Your Pick

Back in early June we got to see what we thought was the cover artwork for the new Nine Inch Nails album Hesitation Marks, due out on September 23, but today we learn that there are actually 4 other covers that will be made available for the album. The digital version, the CD version, the deluxe CD version and the vinyl version of the album will each feature its own cover art, created by artist Russell Mills (the man who created the album artwork for the 1994 NIN masterpiece album The Downward Spiral). Depending on the version of the album you purchase, you will get a different cover … which likely means that rabid NIN fans will end up collecting all 4 versions of the album (ahem, which is prolly what I will do). Click below to see each of the album covers and learn about the inspiration and creation of each piece of artwork. More »
