Do I need a cover?

Yes, you need it !

A release without a cover will not work on the market. The more attractive your cover, the more attractive the release as a whole will be.

The best thing to do is to hire a graphic designer. The more professional the designer, the better.
You can also have us create a cover for you quickly and cheaply in your account under "Bundles".
