Justice are known for making bold statements regardless of the medium, and the visual accompaniment for their upcoming album, Woman, is no exception. The French bloghouse duo revealed the radiant cover art for the effort last week before premiering another of its singles on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show, and now its unexpected inspiration has come to light.
David Zilber, the sous chef of Noma - which has been ranked the best restaurant in the world by Restaurant in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014 - revealed in an Instagram post that Xavier de Rosnay of Justice had told him that one of his photos had given them the idea while dining at the Copenhagen, Denmark destination.
"We're chatting while he's there and turns out he really likes this Instagram account...and lets me know that he was inspired by one of my photos for the cover of the new album," he wrote. "Being a photographer I thought he meant he'd seen my art. No, turns out he was taken by a photo of søl oil infusing for a dish of turbot roe and mulberries."
Zilber had uploaded the image in question to his Instagram account in August of last year, which can be seen below:
Woman by Justice is slated for release on November 18th through Ed Banger Records. Over the next couple of months, keep an eye out for more music from the album as they're sure to let it trickle out in the weeks leading up to its drop, and see its full tracklist below:
