U2’s Songs Of Innocence CD Cover Is Larry Mullen Jr. And Son, Shirtless

U2’s test press album art for Songs Of Innocence was always meant to be temporary, and now the band has revealed the official artwork for the physical release of their thirteenth studio album. It’s a black-and-white photo of drummer Larry Mullen Jr. holding onto his 18-year-old-son, Aaron Elvis. “We’ve always been about community in U2, about family and friends,” Bono explained in a post on the group’s official website. “Songs Of Innocence is the most intimate album we’ve ever made. With this record we were looking for the raw, naked and personal, to strip everything back.” The physical release of the album is out on 10/13. There will be a a single-disc regular edition, a two-disc deluxe edition featuring two new songs and two new demos, and a double LP 180gram white vinyl.
