WPF Change button background image when clicked

I have created a Button and set its background Image. What I want is when the Button is clicked, I want to replace the background Image with another one

How can I accomplish this?

Here is my code with the Button:

<Button x:Name="PopulationReporting" Click="PopulationReporting_Clicked" Width="172" 
       Height="60" Margin="57,170,57,184">
    <Button.Background >
        <ImageBrush ImageSource="images/img-2.png"  />
    </Button.Background>
</Button>

You can do this programmatically (see example here)

or

You can use DataTriggers, where the DataTrigger is bound to a bool value in your ViewModel and changes the Style of your Button. The Button is bound to a Command, so when executed, the Command will change the state of the image (the isPlaying property).

xaml:

<Button Height="23" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="70,272,0,0" Name="buttonPlay" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="75" Command="{Binding PlayCommand}" CommandParameter="{Binding ElementName=ButtonImage, Path=Source}" >
        <Image Name="ButtonImage">
            <Image.Style>
                <Style TargetType="{x:Type Image}">
                    <Style.Triggers>
                        <DataTrigger Binding="{Binding isPlaying}" Value="True">
                            <Setter Property="Source" Value="Play.png" />
                        </DataTrigger>
                        <DataTrigger Binding="{Binding isPlaying}" Value="False">
                            <Setter Property="Source" Value="Stop.png" />
                        </DataTrigger>
                    </Style.Triggers>
                </Style>
            </Image.Style>
        </Image>
</Button>

                if (null != buttonType)
                {

        {
            PropertyChanged(this, new PropertyChangedEventArgs(propertyName));
        }
    }

public class RelayCommand : ICommand
{
   private readonly Predicate<object> _canExecute;
    private readonly Action<object> _execute;

    public event EventHandler CanExecuteChanged;

    public RelayCommand(Action<object> execute) : this(execute, null) { }
