Art of the Cover - Damon Albarn's "Heavy Seas Of Love"

Listen to Damon Albarn's

when your soul isn't right and it's raw to the night, you're in safe hands

A nice cover adorns "Heavy Seas Of Love", a fine single from Albarn's fine debut solo studio album Everyday Robots. 

The song features some gorgeous gospel style vocals from The Leytonstone City Mission Choir.

It also features the 'lovelorn sealion' vocals of some bloke called Brian Eno.

The cover art features a shot of the Palacio Salvo, in Plaza Independenciain, Uruguay.

The very distinctive Palacio Salvo, was designed by the architect Mario Palanti, an Italian immigrant living in Buenos Aires.

Finished in 1928, Palacio Salvo stands 100 m (330 ft) high with the antenna included.

For decades, it was the tallest building in South America.

Palacio Salvo appears in the Albarn shot, and directed, gonzo style, video for the song.
