ART BLANCHE: Illinois

I’ll be honest - I’m still not really sure what the official title for Sufjan Stevens’ fifth studio album actually is. You know, the one dedicated to the Prairie State? (I just wanted to bring to attention that Illinois’ nickname is the Prairie State.) I always thought it was called Come On Feel The Illinoise or just Illinoise, but it has recently been brought to my attention that I am wrong about both of those. So, naturally, I checked out the album’s cover to find the title Sufjan Stevens Invites You to: Come On Feel the Illinoise printed on it. But I’ve been told that’s not it either.

Apparently, it’s just Illinois, and honestly, I find that a little underwhelming. It just seems too simple and short for a man’s whose average song title is roughly a paragraph long. But I digress. 

Back to the task at hand: as it should be expected in this column, my interest in the album formally known as Illinois is its cover. Appropriately enough, much like the album’s title, there are quite a few different variations of its cover out there. The art itself was painted by Divya Srinivasan and features a mixture of notable Illinois-themed images that range from Abraham Lincoln to the Sears (now called Willis) Tower. Of the entire group, only one part stood out by causing a controversy that led to the creation of the different variations of the cover. Yup, it was Superman.

The story goes something like this:

Sometime on or around Illinois’ release date,it was brought to the attention of Sufjan’s label, Asthmatic Kitty, that the image of Superman adorning the cover was unlicensed and asking for trouble. DC Comics (Superman’s publisher) had seen the cover and sent the label a cease and desist order. Because of this, the label asked its distributor, Secretly Canadian, to reach out to stores to halt the initial sales of the album until the problem was resolved. 

What resulted was one of the GREATEST COVER-UPS IN MUSIC HISTORY in that the solution the label and DC Comics reached was to literally cover up the image of Superman with a balloon sticker. Literally-literally.

This let Asthmatic Kitty continue to sell their already printed copies of the album without further violating the copyright on Superman. They were also required to print any new copies of the album sans-Superman. That’s where things get a little silly. There are two different types of covers that comply with this requirement. One simply features sky where Superman once was. The other: well, the balloons make another appearance — this time in a more permanent fixture on the cover.

But, like any ole cover-up the evidence is still out there everywhere — hiding in plain sight, just like Clark Kent.

This should be our least concern but somehow it became our greatest.
