Designed by Sola O, the cover to Spoken’s sophomore album, SMOKE, displays the face of Spoken covered in images and symbols that represent different life stages that make him the man he is today. With all the different experiences and moments we share upon this earth, this cover is meant to serve as a reminder that life is fleeting and that our lives are nothing but SMOKE…Don’t Blow It. James 4:14.
