Javascript Question

Change the body background image with fade effect in jquery

Hey i want to fade in a new background image let´s say every 60 seconds. I´ve set the background image like this:

body {background-image: url(background.jpg);}


Now i want to change it, so after 60seconds it changes to background2.jpg, then after 60 seconds to background3.jpg and so on..

I´ve found a lot of stuff without changing it in the body but just as an image...
any quick solutions?

Thank you!

BIG UPDATE


Took the meat of this code from this previous answer and added some bling (using my site background stash lol)

original fiddle :)

NEW Super Fiddle

Javascript:

$(document).ready(function () {
    var img_array = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5],
        newIndex = 0,
        index = 0,
        interval = 5000;
    (function changeBg() {

        //  --------------------------
        //  For random image rotation:
        //  --------------------------

            //  newIndex = Math.floor(Math.random() * 10) % img_array.length;
            //  index = (newIndex === index) ? newIndex -1 : newIndex;

        //  ------------------------------
        //  For sequential image rotation:
        //  ------------------------------

            index = (index + 1) % img_array.length;

        $('body').css('backgroundImage', function () {
            $('#fullPage').animate({
                backgroundColor: 'transparent'
            }, 1000, function () {
                setTimeout(function () {
                    $('#fullPage').animate({
                        backgroundColor: 'rgb(255,255,255)'
                    }, 1000);
                }, 3000);
            });
            return 'url(http://www.fleeceitout.com/images/field.' + img_array[index] + '.jpg)';
        });
        setTimeout(changeBg, interval);
    })();
});

CSS:

body {
    height: 100%;
    width: 100%;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    position: relative;
    background-image: url(http://www.fleeceitout.com/images/field.2.jpg);
    background-size: cover;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    background-position: 0 0;
    background-attachment: fixed;
}
#fullPage {
    position: absolute;
    min-width: 100%;
    min-height: 100%;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);
}
