Five more covers featuring Kate Moss and a current list.

Since my previous post collecting all the record covers I could find that featured Kate Moss on their covers, I have come across five more.
1. Primal Scream & Kate Moss – “Some Velvet Morning” – Columbia 12″ – 2003
2. Babyshambles – “Down in Albion” – Rough Trade 2LP – 2005
3. Babyshambles – “Shotter’s Nation” – Parlophone LP – 2007
4. The Unholy Two – “Kutter / Porkys” – Columbia Discount Records – 7″ – 2008
5. Various Artists Compilation – “Kate Moss for Longchamp” – Universal Music – 2010

Pete Doherty of Babyshambles had a much publicised relationship with Kate Moss and she wrote several songs for the group. Babyshambles‘ 2005 double album “Down in Albion” came in a plain beige cover but had colourful inner sleeves with a picture of Kate Moss on one of them.

Their next album “Shotter’s Nation“, released on 1st October 2007 had a possible picture of Kate Moss‘ back on the front cover.

First there was Primal Scream‘s 12-inch cover of Lee Hazelwood‘s “Some Velvet Morning” which featured Kate Moss repeating the Roland S. Howard & Lydia Lunch version from 1982. Thanks to Carlos Soares for tipping me off about this cover.

Then in 2008 a group called The Unholy Two released a 7-inch single entitled “Kutter” b/w “Porkys” that featured a fold out cover with photocopied pictures of a naked Kate Moss. The photographs are from a 2005 portfolio by painter and photographer Chuck Close.

A promotional CD from 2010 released by fashion house Longchamp featured a selection of tracks chosen by Kate Moss and featured cover photos from a Longchamp catalogue. The CD was simply titled “Kate Moss for Longchamps“.
