Vinyl Athletics: Kanye West “Power” Picture Disc 12″

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Released: September 14, 2010 (Vinyl)

As a collector, I have records that sit in my collection that I’ll never play but are there for purely artistic reasons. Kanye’s “Power” had the ill visual and when it came out, we knew that his upcoming album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy would be quite the project. The American contemporary visual artist behind the albums cover art and the art on this picture disc is George Condo. The particular cover for Power has Shakespearian influences and George has stated that “He’s alive in the painting, you know what I mean? In a strange way it’s like, he opened his eyes.”
