This is the third in the series of lips-on-album-covers series. The first two posts are lips1 and lips2.

Once we created the first two posts, we started seeing lips everywhere. There is a name for the phenomenon when something you note starts popping up everywhere. It's called the frequency illusion or the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon, or frequency bias. I guess we have "lips on the brain".

Our favorite new discoveries in these 16 albums with lips on the covers are the American composer Nico Muhly's "Mothertongue" (2008) and the Icelandic artist Gyða Valtýsdóttir's "Ox" (2021).
