About New England

This Wishbone Ash album cover design is one of a collection of archival inkjet prints that we released in 2014, celebrating previously unpublished album cover art from the Hipgnosis archives. New England is the seventh studio album by the British rock band, one that would mark their Americanization as they relocated from England to the Northeastern United States. The album cover idea came from Peter Christopherson, the third core member of Hipgnosis, whose own sexuality seemed to inform this thoughtful photograph. Storm Thorgerson said that "The image seemed to encapsulate the frontier sensibility favoured by the band; a sense of new horizons and starting afresh, an inherent feeling of adventure blending with the vulnerability of the youth's bare torso and the slightly phallic nature of the sharpened stick. Kept in black and white it became more allegorical, subtly sensual and elegiac." Anyone purchasing 5 or more prints from the set will receive their prints in a beautiful archival portfolio, screenprinted exclusively with a Hipgnosis logo designed by Aubrey Powell.
