Body Art Update: Mysterious Image Over Grimey's Is Those Darlins' Blur the Line Album Art



Well, mystery solved. #ButtWatch2013 is resolved. As we told you yesterday, a 9-foot-by-9-foot banner featuring four unclothed bods appeared earlier this week on the front of the building at 1604 Eighth Ave. S. — the building that's home to Grimey's, The Basement and marketing/management/distribution company Thirty Tigers — sending local prudes, Helen Lovejoy types and Fox 17 News into a frenzy. Turns out the image is the cover art for Those Darlins' forthcoming album Blur the Line (see it over there on the left). The album was recorded with noted local producer Roger Moutenot and is set for an Oct. 1 release. Here's what the Darlins themselves have to say on the matter:

We love that Nashville and its music community are growing. We wanted to have them react to the cover image before they knew it was related to Those Darlins. We didn't want any associations our name currently brings to affect their initial reactions to the cover image. Create some mystery, have some fun. We wanted people to talk, but we hardly think this image is controversial.

You know where I've seen more nudity? On Buddy Killen Circle. And in church. And in children's books.
