Published May 11, 2016Before the era of portable devices and streaming services, cover art was considered a major part of experiencing a record. Now, Red Bull Music Academy is looking to challenge your mind with a new game by celebrating some of music's iconic covers.
Created alongside Los Angeles' Folder Studio, the Album Art IQ game is built to test your knowledge of hundreds of iconic covers within the genres of hip-hop, electronic, metal and New York artists.
The game lines up two covers per turn, which become significantly less pixelated as time passes. The goal is to pick the right one as quickly as you can to earn the maximum amount of points. Too many consecutive wrong answers will end your gameplay.
Work your way to the top of the leaderboard by playing the incredibly addictive game here.
The Red Bull Music Academy is currently running in New York City until May 22.
