Released in May 1999, Play (right) is the fifth studio album by electronic music artist Moby. Play has been called the best-selling electronic album of all time, with nine hit singles in the UK and over 10 million copies sold worldwide.
The photograph for the cover was taken by the late fashion and fine art photographer Corinne Day. Day died of cancer in August at the age of 45. She achieved fame primarily for her photographs of model Kate Moss that started what became known as the "grunge" look in the 1990s.
The object being held against the wall in the bottom left corner of the photo is a photographer's flash meter. In our latest Album Cones version, the flash meter has been replaced by a tasty frozen treat. It looks as if Moby is unhappy with vanilla.

You must also include your name or AAX forum username. You can also upload your images to Flickr and submit them to the Album Cones Flickr Group.
I will publish Album Cones as I receive them. I will not guarantee that your image will be published (but I'm not going to be too picky).
