With video conferencing becoming a daily part of so many people’s lives since the COVID-19 lockdown, Sony Music has launched a new collection of background images that allows people to put themselves into their favorite album covers and music videos while chatting with friends, family or co-workers.

More than a dozen images currently are available as part of the “Iconic Music Backgrounds” collection, spanning from the 1960s to the present day. Among them are backgrounds featuring the cover art of Bob Dylan‘s 1963 album The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan and Judas Priest‘s 1990 studio effort, Painkiller.

Other artists whose album covers or videos are featured as backgrounds include U.K. alt-rockers Primal Scream, pop stars Britney Spears and ‘NSYNC, country legend Willie Nelson, rap group Wu-Tang Clan and more.

Additional album covers and video stills will be made available in the coming weeks.

Visit IconicMusicBackgrounds.com to check out the collection and download the images.
