The Jackson 5 (feet apart!) Artist re-imagines iconic album covers to obey social distancing rules amid coronavirus pandemic

  • Coronavirus symptoms: what are they and should you see a doctor?

People across the globe have been instructed to obey social distancing rules for the foreseeable future amid the coronavirus pandemic.

And following the new legislation, Los Angeles based design agency Activista have reimagined a series of iconic album covers in accordance with the law.

A series of reenvisioned album sleeves show what they might have looked like if they had been released in the current climate, where people are forced to obey a social distance of six feet.

Rather than being huddled together, the Jackson 5 are suitably distanced across the album – resulting in an altogether more lacklustre cover.

Arguably one of the most iconic album covers, The Beatles’ Abbey Road, sees the band spread out down the road rather than in formation on the legendary crossing. 

While two men, who once appeared destined to meet on the front of Oasis’ (What’s The Story) Morning Glory cover, now pass on opposite sides of the street.
