With the release of her debut album Stranger In The Alps, Phoebe Bridgers proved her talent for confessional songwriting. Despite the success of her 2020 album Punisher, her debut LP’s song “Motion Sickness” is still her most-streamed track. Now, celebrating the four-year anniversary of the album that kick-started her success, Bridgers had shared the original photo that was turned into the Stranger In The Alps cover — and it’s actually one of her baby photos.
Stranger In The Alps‘ eerie music matches the cover art, which has a dog standing next to a figure that has been painted over to resemble a ghost. Angela Deane, who is known for making ghost compositions from historical pictures, created the artwork. Bridgers has published the original photo that was later made into her Stranger In The Alps cover art, which shows her as a cute toddler dressed in a matching hot pink tank top and shorts and cheesing at the camera.
Sharing the photo on Twitter to commemorate the albums’ anniversary, Bridgers wrote: “stranger in the alps came out four years ago today thanks for listening.”
