    The location for the Siren shoot was near Anglesey on the coast of Wales. Although the original intention was to have a stormy sea in the background, the day of shooting ended up being the hottest day in living memory, and therefore the sea was extremely calm. This gave the resulting picture a mythological aspect, reminiscent of Ancient Greece. Antony Price designed the Siren costume, the model was Jerry Hall and the photographer was Graham Hughes. The Art Director was Bryan Ferry.
