Just been checking out Chicane’s “Thousand Yard Stare” on Spotify as background music while I’m writing up another project, and as I glanced at the artwork, it struck a familiar chord.  Took me a while, but it just came to me while I was typing…

Here’s the Chicane artwork for the album:

Chicane’s “Thousand Yard Stare” cover – look familiar?

When it occurred to me where I’d seen it before, I kicked myself for it having taken so long.  Here’s what I thought of:

Artwork for Jean Michel Jarre’s “Magnetic Fields” / “Chants Magnetiques”. Inspiration for Chicane, perhaps?

Being a fan of both artists, I love that Chicane has apparently given such a nod to Jarre, whom in my mind seems to have laid a lot of the groundwork for Chicane’s work.  And for what it’s worth, both are excellent albums in their own right!

I’d be intrigued to see any other artists who’ve nodded to each other in this way…  Comments are open!
