Cyndi Lauper’s She’s So Unusual is arguably one of the most iconic album covers of the 1980s.

BuzzFeed recently spoke with Lauper in celebration of the 30th Anniversary re-release, where she shared this tidbit about how the cover came together, as well as these exclusive photo outtakes (which come courtesy of Sony Legacy).

“When I explained my vision to Janet Perr, who was the art director, she suggested Coney Island,” Lauper said. “Janet and I went together to location scout with Annie Leibowitz who was the photographer — I was so lucky to work with Annie on my first album cover — and we came upon the Roberto Clemente building and we knew it would be the perfect backdrop. I wanted it to be a study of midday light. It’s my favorite time of day as far as lighting goes.”
