Last week, American blues-rock duo The Black Keys released the official music video for Tighten Up, the first single from their new album Brothers (right). I have already written about the "generic" cover art for the album. It is a clever use of simple typography, without any illustration or photography. It is a concept that has been seen several times in the past.
The cover art for Tighten Up is similar to the that of the album. A 12" single (below) was released on vinyl for Record Store Day. It lists the songs on both sides of the record.
The cover for the single and the album use the same font, Cooper Black. Cooper Black was created in 1921 by American typographer Oswald Bruce Cooper. It is a font that has been popular with graphic designers during several eras, but has more recently been considered too common and even dated.
