Rock In Rio, heavy metal group Iron Maiden’s latest album, is released on 25 March with a sleeve created by Peacock Design. The live album, recorded last year in the Brazilian capital, features a shot of the stage representing the mouth of the band’s skeletal mascot, Eddie. The album will be available on CD, vinyl and cassette and a limited edition hologram version of the cover will be available as a CD slipcase. The hologram reveals a darkened stage in the sunset. Peacock produced several different ideas to reflect the band playing live, says creative director Stuart Crouch. Rock In Rio is released on EMI Records.
The visual system created by SomeOne is based on movement patterns of birds gliding on thermal columns, which allow them to travel long distances with ease.
