News: Peter Blake to design new Madness album

Chart veterans Madness have drafted in Monograph artist Sir Peter Blake to design the cover of their new album.

The band, who memorably played on the roof of Buckingham Palace for the Diamond Jubilee Concert have turned to Sir Peter, who celebrated his 80th birthday this year and whose subjects have included the Queen.

Sir Peter’s best known sleeve is the artwork for The Beatles album Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, although he also did covers for Paul Weller, Oasis and Brian Wilson in exclusive Monograph print ‘Gettin In Over My Head’.

Madness have settled on the title Oui, Oui, Si, Si, Ja, Ja, Da, Da for their tenth album, and the sleeve image features rejected names which include Doolally and Dial M For Madness.

The album is due for release on October 29, with the single My Girl 2 out a week earlier.
