The photograph on the 7" vinyl sleeve was created by the band's guitarist Nick Zinner, who is a professional photographer.
The artwork features a barn in rural Massachusetts during a snowstorm, and is a reference to the location where the song was written.
Zinner attended Bard College where he played in the Boba Fett Experience, who later changed their name to Challenge of the Future because of concerns about being sued by George Lucas. The performance, in which he collaborated with musicians Hisham Bharoocha and Ben Vida, involved 41 players of various stringed instruments, plus additional percussion and synthesiser parts.
The band moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn in the late 1990s and broke up in 2001. He contributed guitar and keyboard to several tracks on Bright Eyes' 2005 album Digital Ash in a Digital Urn and went on tour with the band as part of the rotating roster. 41 Strings was performed at Sydney Opera House in Australia as part of Sydney Festival 2012, and Royal Festival Hall in London UK as part of James Lavelle's Meltdown in 2014 with guest guitarists from The XX, Savages, Deap Vally, Damon Albarn band, Magic Numbers and The Verve.
Zinner has also remixed Single Frame's song, "People are Germs," in addition to appearing in the music video. Zinner studied photography at Bard and also in Paris, France.
