The band Mae (Multisensory Aesthetic Experience) has been releasing one song every month of the year 2009. Each song is released as a single, complete with its own album cover. This is is the cover for the song "Night/Day".
I really like this design. The photo transitions from starry night to cloudy daylight without a hitch. The difference in hues is soft, as the night is obviously waning and the daylight growing. One could almost believe that this is an unaltered photograph, if not for the nagging voice in the back of his head whispering this is impossible.
Mae happens to be one of my favorite bands, but sometimes they have odd tastes in cover art. However, this is one album cover that I love almost as much as the song itself. Multisensory Aesthetic Experience, indeed.
