Sixten, the artist whose work inspired the design for Green Day's new album cover, posted up a blog about his original artwork to give people some more details about where it started, and said
I love their passion, and just had to make a stencil out of it to spread the love. I've painted it a bit here and there on my travels over the years .... Glad it inspired someone.



Chris Bilheimer was the art director for the new cover, who has worked with the band for covers of American Idiot, Jesus of Suburbia, Bullet in a Bible, Shenanigans, International Superhits, Warning, and some Nimrod singles. I think the biggest similarities can be seen between 21st Century Breakdown and Shenanigans; it also reminds me of the JOS single.


I really like the new design because of it's similiarity to Shenanigans, which has always been my favorite cover. The spray-paint design gives it a much more "do-it-yourself" feel, and I think that fits extremely well with who Green Day is. Shenanigans is the only album cover I have a poster of, but I think once posters of the new cover become available, it'll get a spot on my wall as well.
