Sir Peter Blake to appear on album cover in person

Sir Peter Blake, who designed some of the world's most famous album covers including Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band, is to appear on the front of a record in person for the first time, dressed as Moses.
Sir Peter, who designed the sleeve for Band Aid's charity single, Paul Weller's Stanley Road and Oasis' Stop the Clocks, will appear of the front of a special edition Madness album.

The artist had already designed the cover for the band's tenth album, entitled Oui, Oui, Si, Si, Ja, Ja, Da, Da, and will now feature on the repackaged disc in person.

He appears on the cover dressed as Moses, in tribute to one of the discarded suggested titles the band considered for the album: The Ten Commandments.

Members of Madness joined him to dress up as other characters representing 'Rake’s Progress', 'Man Of Steel’, ‘Dial M For Madness’, ‘Circus Freak’ and ‘Deolali’.

The original cover had featured the same proposed titles in various fonts, crossed out.

The special edition will also include seven new bonus tracks, a live dvd recording, and a foreword from the band. It is out on April 12th, with pre-ordering open from today.

Sir Peter, renowned as a pioneer of pop art, is most famous for his work with the Beatles, which was hailed by Damian Hirst as "one of the genius works of the 20th century".
