The album photoshoot was taken on December 16, 2019 in Los Angeles by Joe Termini. The cover shows us Justin looking to the side. Where the color red predominates. Even so, it is not the first time that this color predominates in a Justin album, this was in the limited edition of Under the Mistletoe released in 2011. Thehe Changes cover shows us a shirtless Justin, his second time doing this since his fourth studio album Purpose.
Also like Purpose, Justin Bieber's own name does not appear on the cover. These two are the only ones where that doesn't appear. But what does appear, as on all of Justin's albums, is the title logo, designed by "Buff Monster."
The most important detail appears at the top right, where it appears from number 1 to 5, where the latter is circled. Making reference that they are in front of the 5th studio album Changes.
