Residents at a nursing home in Edgware have found a creative way
to keep themselves entertained during the coronavirus lockdown –
and it involves some of music’s most iconic album covers.

Robert Speker, the entertainment manager at Sydmar Lodge Care
Home, encouraged the home’s residentsto recreate some of the
most classic album covers of all-time.

Covers undertaken for the challenge include Bruce
Springsteen’s ‘Born In The U.S.A’, Michael Jackson’s
‘Bad’, Madonna’s ‘True Blue’, and David Bowie’s 1973
album ‘Aladdin Sane’.

Residents also recreated more recent album covers, such as
Adele’s 21, Taylor Swift’s 1989, and Blink-182’s ‘Enema Of
The State’.

Speker shared some of the results on Twitter:

NME have reached out to Robert Speker for more information on
the challenge.

Last month,
Lady Gaga called on her fans to design their own digital
‘Chromatica’ artwork.

Released in June, the pop star’s
sixth album
is based around a fictional utopia which is
explored through the project’s accompanying official visuals.

Teaming up with Adobe, Gaga has asked her Little Monsters to get
creative with their own interpretations of the Chromatica
planet.

“My fans have consistently shown their love and creativity
through their art over the years, and always make me feel so happy
and understood,†Gaga said. “I can’t wait to see what
Chromatica means to them.â€

Meanwhile,
Australian rock veterans AC/DC are the latest band to release
jigsaw puzzles themed around their artwork.

Four of their album covers, the 1976 international version of
‘High Voltage’, 1981’s ‘For Those About To Rock’,
1987’s ‘Blow Up Your Video’ and 1995’s ‘Ballbreaker’,
have received the jigsaw puzzle treatment.

The puzzles will be made up of 500 pieces each, and released on
September 4 via the company Zee Productions’ ‘Rock Saw’
range.
