Do you want to know what the cover of the new album of the upcoming release of Lil Nas X looks like? Well, now you can.
The “Old Town Road” songwriter took to social media to let fans know what the album cover looks like for his upcoming album, Montero. And surprise: we find there the references of SpongeBob SquarePants and the naked grand master of ceremonies:
The bright and vivid image spawns sprites and spells, storms and mysticism. It’s eye-catching for about a million reasons and, possibly, controversial given Lil Nas X’s bare back placed front and center (although we’re digging it!).
Another source of inspiration for the cover, the rapper says, is artist John Stephens and his piece, Genesis II.
Montero is the first official LP of Lil Nas X and it’s out on Friday (September 17th).
In a previous tweet, Lil Nas X said, “Creating this album has been therapy for me… I have learned to let go of controlling people’s perceptions of who I am, what I can do and where I will be. I realized that the only opinion of me that really matters is mine.
