Female Musicians Are Being Removed From Their Own Album Covers In Iran

An album isn’t just about the music. Yes, the sounds are without a doubt its most essential element, but we must acknowledge the role of cover art in making it whole. Be it the fold-out gatefolds of the vinyl era, the pull-out liner notes in CD cases or the icon on a digital player, these visuals have an important role in defining how we look at a particular release. However, one Iranian streaming site, Melovaz, isn’t happy with how some of them look. In fact, they’re so worried these album covers might be a bad influence on their listeners, they’re censoring them. What devil seeds are these pictures featuring, you ask? Women.
