Dirty Projectors' nod to Prince on new album artwork?

Take a look at the cover of the Dirty Projectors new album, Lamp Lit Prose... (if I knew how to upload an image here, I would)....

a little nod to Prince, I think. Too much to be coincidence...

look at the way those flowers are thrown down, and what do red and blue make?

Certainly a resemblance to the border/back of the PR album sleeve and the WDC cover. Might be just a generic look, but they could be giving a subtle nod. hmmm

You saw that and said, "um, no"? What were you looking with?

Just curious.

Thank you. A nod was all I said it was... how anyone can see that and not see the connection is, well....

Very nice tribute!

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

It's doubtful they've ever even seen that cover, but when Prince borrowed/copied it was somehow clever, artistic and inventive, like everything he took from Hendrix.

Yeah. ... if it were spinning with the two circles on the sleeve; it'd probably look purple.... the album might as well on a turn table but it's less likely.

They look like yin and yang things almost, joined. ...kinda Princey in its own way. He being a Gemini, would've given an approval to something like this that "represented the twins" probably.

Yeah it would look purple probably as a picture disc.

How could I miss that? Interesting. Like.

It is definitely a nod to Prince.
