Peacock Design has created a set of record sleeves for The Funky Lowlives. The design consultancy has designed covers for the artists’ forthcoming LP, entitled Someone Else is Here, and the single Til I left the Music, which are both due to be released later in the year. Independent label Outer Recordings approached Peacock after seeing the group’s work on a campaign for the Music Week Awards and asked the consultancy to come up with a similar feel for the next Lowlives album.

The album is scheduled for release in October.
