Going viral on Imgur today: creating your debut music album with Wikipedia. Have you tried it yet?
To craft your own debut album artwork, follow these steps:
- Hit “random article” on the English Wikipedia to find your “band name”
- Find a random Wikiquote page, and select three to five words from it to form your “album title”
- Use this randomising tool to find a piece of public domain artwork from Wikimedia Commons for your album art—you have three tries
- Edit it all together in the image editing software of your choice!
Here are a selection of albums we’ve made:
Our thanks go to the rest of the Communications team for their album covers. All underlying images are in the public domain.
