Unwritten Law has released the cover art for their upcoming album, Swan.  The cover was chosen as a result of a fan-generated contest launched earlier this year, from which the band has chosen three winning choices.  The band comments on the competition, as well as their reasoning for those they selected:

“We wanted to bring our fans into the process of making this record so we decided to have a contest where the fans make the artwork for the cover… We got a lot of great artwork and it was very hard to decide. We couldn’t get everyone to agree on one clear cut winner, so we decided to take our three favorite entries and have three different covers for the album. I think, for me, the fly cover was my favorite because it took what my interpretation of ‘Swan’ was literally; something disgusting turned into something beautiful. The second image of the feather in blood was everyone’s all around favorite, because it seemed kind of soft, romantic and violent at the same time. The final entry of the woman with wings sitting on a chair just looked classy and timeless. We felt this image of the introverted girl waiting to explode was an amazing interpretation that depicts the beauty of coming of age. We’re really happy that fans got to be a part of the creation of this Unwritten Law record.”

The album is set for an early 2011 release via Suburban Noize Records.  All three winning submissions can be found below.
