“Animals” is the eighth studio album by English rock band Pink Floyd. Released in January 1977, it is a concept album that provides a scathing critique of the social-political conditions of 1970s Britain and presents a marked change from their earlier work.
The album’s cover image, a pig floating between two chimneys on Battersea Power Station, was designed by bassist and writer Roger Waters, and produced by long-time collaborator Hipgnosis.
