Default How to stop music cover art from showing on lock screen

Does anyone know how to keep the music album cover art from displaying when the screen is locked.
Without losing the play/pause and next buttons on the lock screen?

I really do not want a image popping up when I turn on my phone, that I have no control over.

So far I know Play music and Rhapsody both show the cover art when music is playing
spotify does not seem to download cover art, so it works

Spotify has downloaded cover art for me and does cover my lockscreen, in fact. The only work around i've found, I added a widget to my lockscreen (by enabling widgets on lockscreen, stock feature) and flipping to that app while I have music playing. That way I can switch back and forth when I want to skip track/pause.

I don't think we'll do exactly what we want here without switching ROMs.

Curious as to why you wouldn't want them to show? I thought this was a great addition.

Yeah I actually love the addition of showing the album artwork when music is playing. Doubletwist does it too, but randomly it'll I guess glitch out and then it won't show the controls or the artwork even though music is playing.
