I hope you guys do remember the awesome little preview application called Globus Preview. Here is another beautiful application from the same team. It's called CoverGloobus. It displays cover art and lyrics in your desktop and it supports almost all popular linux media players. Also, the supported themes are really good in my opinion.
CoverGloobus is a nice simple application to display cover art in your desktop along with lyrics. It is highly configurable and it looks beautiful as well.
CoverGloobus application looks and feels simple in my Ubuntu 10.04 machine. The latest version of CoverGloobus comes with a lot of options including one to integrate cover-art in Docky. And if all your song albums don't have cover art, there is an option to get cover art from amazon which works flawlessly.
The number of CoverGloobus supported players include Amarok 2.3, Banshee, Songbird, Rhythombox, Listen, MPD and many more.
