Star Wars vinyl mash-up albums - Prince

Presumably, there’s a whole galaxy that is chock full of eclectic music in the Star Wars universe. However, fans have only heard a very limited amount of it in the Star Wars movies. There’s Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes (aka the Cantina Band) from Star Wars: A New Hope, Sy Snootles and the Max Rebo Band from Return of the Jedi, and the unnamed Star Wars: The Force Awakens band in Maz Kanata’s cantina which is composed of Taybin Ralorsa, Infrablue Zedbeddy Coggins, Ubert “Sticks” Quaril, and Sudswater Dillifay Glon.

But what if the rest of the characters we know in the Star Wars universe all had albums of their own inspired by a variety of popular albums from Earth? One artist has recreated some familiar album covers from the likes of Eminem, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, The Band, Queen, Rage Against the Machine, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, but using characters from the Star Wars universe in place of the artists and their album artwork.

Here are some of the vinyl creations from Why the Long Play Face? (via The AV Club):

I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who would pay so much money to hear an entire rap album by Nien Nunb, especially in the style of Eminem. And if there’s anyone in the Star Wars universe who could make an album that even rivals the smoothness and sexiness of a Prince album, it’s Lando Calrissian.
