It certainly wasn’t the biggest revelation in music over the weekend, but it did catch our attention. After three years of guesses, assumptions, and incorrect presumptions, Hooray For Earth finally revealed what the eff was pictured on their 2011 album True Loves.
A beetle? A mask? Some sort of caramelized alien head?
“It was a glass squirrel,” the band wrote in a post to Instagram, showing the little guy chillin’ on top of the album’s sleeve.
Check out the most famous glass squirrel below. Hooray For Earth’s latest album, Racy, was in July via Dovecote Records. We are certain that is frontman Noel Heroux on the cover, there.
And BTW — Hooray For Earth are nominated for “Best Boston Artist That Doesn’t Live In Boston” in the 2014 Boston Music Awards. It’s a pretty tough category that also features Skaters, Lake Street Dive, and fellow Sound Of Our Town performers the Both and Eli “Paperboy” Reed.
