If you are reading this it is because you are a hesitant person or because you like to take care of every last detail of your music. After several months of working on your song, it’s time to choose a cover art that represents your song, your person, your brand, or the ideals you want to convey with the song.
In other blogs we talked about the importance of cover art or even how to make your own cover art. In this blog you will learn how to choose your cover art in the right way.
Many artists choose to make a music video as a complement to their cover art, but others opt for the option of acquiring a static cover art, a motion cover, or a lyric video. All these options are totally valid and sufficient to broadcast your music.
What I want to transmit with my cover art 🤔
This is the first step that we must do when our song or album is finished. Through our songs we want to transmit a message, our cover art has to do the same.
It is important to have a clear idea, in many occasions the name of our single or the album can help us when choosing a design. Let’s imagine that our single is called “Olimpo”, normally we would look for classic cover art that represents some mythological figure, like a god, or playing with classic and modern elements that enhance our cover art.
It is also proven that cover arts that include a face usually have a higher CTR than those without a face. The CTR is the Click Through Rate, that is, the times that people click on your cover or link and therefore, listen to your song.
So the higher the quality of our cover art, the more interaction the audience will have with our music.
