I like OutKast.
I like LCD SS.
I don't mind the Gorillaz.

I'll be sure to check out the new track when it comes out. Nice box, very clean/sleek.

I like Andre and Gorillaz, but I've never even heard of LCD SS. :/

I had a feeling you made this when I saw the title. Not bad, way too plain for my tastes, but it looks nice.

Looks good, but the text on the back not being centered is driving me nuts.

The composition of the typography is a bit odd.
Look at the ''Doyathing featuring'' part. I feel as if it would improve the flow of the cover when they were A) aligned with the 'Gorillaz' part and B) equal in size [horizontally, at least].

The same goes for the part that starts with ''Andre'' and ends with ''instrumental version''. If it was as wide as the top part, it would look more like one section instead of various thrown-together bits of tekst.

I would like to state that this is just a small aspect of the cover, though.
The overall artwork, design and composition is just great. I am particularly fond of the Converse shoes on the back because it just fits the style amazingly well.

This cover is simple, yet effective. With the small changed I mentioned, I would not be surprised to find this on a shelf somewhere in my local record store.

UPDATE: Version 2
-Updated front cover with a newer, higher quality version of the original image.
-Changed typography on the back cover; I'm not 100% sure about this but let me know what you guys think about it.
-The thumbnail of this box is now the first image that appears on Google Images when searching "gorillaz doyathing"! I'm really happy about that.

A bit plain for my tastes, but it's still aesthetically pleasing. I feel like adding abit more to the back, maybe a track listing or something, would make it look a little less empty. The cover is just perfect though,

Well there's not really much of a tracklisting I can put. It's a single, which typically only has other versions of the song or a b-side, which I can't include because the only track announced was DoYaThing, along with the "12-minute explicit version."

@HalfSwiss Oh didn't know that. In that case it's perfect the way it is. Good job.

Looks nice, man! Although, I think the front should have a title on it.
