let's suppose it's true... why hasn't been still announced a physical release of the single? Of course, I hope it's true cause I'm waiting for 3 things now:
- video for viva la vida
- cd single for viva la vida
- friday june 13th obviously...
when all these things happen, I'll be in heaven!

Lol, if anyone would've post the album cover months before it was shown, no one would have believed it either :laugh2:

Fake!

Real!

Who knows these days?

But yeah, it's fake, as you guys have already called it right.

I'm just in agreement.:)

I love how people say it looks "Photoshopped" as an argument to it being a fake. Heads up guys, EVERYTHING IS PHOTOSHOPPED. That's what 99% of the industry uses to compose images. Did you know the official cover for Violet Hill was Photoshopped? Did you know the actual album art was Photoshopped?

Honestly. Reasons would be nice. :dozey:

Needless to say, I don't think it's legit, and if it is, I don't like it. Mainly because the composition is poor, and tonality is poorly balanced across the canvas.

i really don't understand why people go all the way to create an account and just make one lousy post about a fake coverart....

I'll tell you why it's fake: if the art department in EMI thinks as an actual art department, they wouldn't use a painting for a single cover art, since they didn't use one for the VH single, and as an art department who cares about your artist, you should keep a line of artwork and make all of your releases for the same album as equal as possible...

anyways, it's just a graphic designer's 2-cents.....

...it doesn't take a lot of effort to stick the "Viva La Vida" paintstrokes - made red by a blend filter - on top of a random classical painting.
i hate to point it out semy but that's preeety much all they've done on the album cover too.:p

i do think it was painted on nicely though...

Well the Viva La Vida paint strokes probably took a bit of effort to make originally....

To me, the font is similar to another called Levibrush used in all caps.
I've used it before on some of my work and I got from dafont.com.

I know it isn't the same font, but you can add some brushing to it and it would look very similar.

And what's your definition of an FTP index Mr. Oasis hacker?

I've never heard of that term.

sorry to go off-topic, but could someone please explain what is meant by 'digipak'.

is 'gatefold' the funky folded cd cases as opposed to the standard jewel cases also?
