This looks like the penis to vulnicura's vagina. come through with the free sex-ED, b!

AS FOR ME, I SEE shells covered in nacre, flapping wings, FISH FINS and LARGE LEAVES, OR AT LEAST the skeleton of THEM, dessicated and crystallized.

The way the cloth swirls reminds me of the motion of smoke or something evaporating, going up and up AND UP. IT LOOKS SOMEHOW CAUGHT BETWEEN THE GROUND AND THE THE AIR.

THE TRANSPARENCY, THE GLASS-LIKE FEELING AND THE RAINBOWS KIND OF OUT THE IMAGE AS A BIG SOFT PRISM TOO. TOTALLY HERE FOR THE ICELANDIC ANSWER TO ROAR AND DARK HORSE.

I originally thought the negative space inside the B was a black hole

It's very akin to the 90s digital Japanese 'future' art of Moriko Mori. It's a bit dated now, but it used to blow my mind as a kid :lol:

I'm more curious about the album cover. But, if this is her "Mariko Mori" era, I can totally live with that.

I'm seeing a lot of birds but in a metallic way hhaha
I also see letter b like everyone suspected,
and the shining heart unlike the wound from the vulnicura Era.

It seems that what's printed on the vinyl record is all the stuff that was overlayed to the digital cover to make the vinyl cover

So the record print and the digital cover are separate, and the vinyl cover is them together. Pretty cool!
