Legendary English rock band Blur have chosen a surprise location on the cover of their latest album.

The band released the artwork for their ninth album, The Ballad of Darren, earlier today to fans. 

Scots were shocked to see an iconic snap of Gourock lido on the front, which will be viewed by millions around the world.

The picture was taken by photographer Martin Parr back in 2004 and shows Ian Galt as the only person swimming in the popular pool.

The Ballad of Darren will be released on July 21.
