These classic album covers have been translated into beautiful minimalist prints

We get it: you want to show off your stellar music taste by hanging some vinyl albums on the wall, but you also don’t want it to look like you’re squatting in a branch of Urban Outfitters.

Have a look at the stripped-back prints below, and have a go at identifying them (answers below the image).
