Cover art for the Gossip's next album

When posting the Gossip's "Heavy Cross," we suggested the trio's Rick Rubin-produced fourth album Music For Men had its own heavy cross to bear, i.e. whether or not the Grammy man's slightly tweaked sound and the band's new Columbia label would push Beth Ditto & Co. further into the crossover section of the record store. It's too early to say, but it's not too early to note that the album art evokes KD Lang, Morrissey's Viva Hate, David Bowie, Johnny Cashy, Vanilla Ice, James Chance, and a million other iconic folks and pics with its cool b&w, splash of pink, and distant stare. That said, the band tells us the photo was inspired by the Germs. True?



Music For Men is out 6/22 via Columbia/Sony.
