Deepest Blue, Late September Album Cover, 2004

By Storm Thorgerson
About the image
”The idea for this cover came from something about ‘keeping tabs’, keeping up with the news, finger on the pulse i.e. having your ear to the ground. I had always wanted to use a very large wave or tsunami ever since Dark Side, when we had suggested a photographic version of the comic book hero the Silver Surfer. The body painting, suggestive of depth contours on a map suggests some unfathomable affinity with what’s to come or some peculiar ritual involving the girl and the sea: does she know what’s coming?

”In fanciful moments I like to think of this design as Pink Floyd meets Roxy Music. Deepest Blue said they loved it, envisaging perhaps their music as about to wash over an unsuspecting public”.
