Taken in Richmond Park on 30th July 1997.
Michael Spencer Jones toured with the Verve and was their official photographer from 1992 up until their split in 1998, creating most of their classic cover images.
Michael recalls how he took the cover shot -
“The Verve had been recording Urban Hymns and it had been an intense time for them. We all went over to Richmond Park in London and they were waiting to have their picture taken by another photographer who was setting up all his lighting gear – for the first time in months they all looked totally relaxed so I thought ‘I’m having that’ and got in there with a fish eye lens and took their picture; and that was the one that ended up on the cover! They were so absorbed with looking at the deer in the park that they forgot the reason why they were there in the first place”
The cover artwork has never been previously available to buy.
