Still no track listing to attach with, but at least we can finally say that things are shaping up nicely. Danny Brown’s anticipated full-length studio album gets the cover it deserves and the recognition it needs (especially after that threat to record label, Fool’s Gold, to leak his own album since it would “fuck around and never come out..”).
Honestly, the artwork seems a little lackluster. To some. However, it’s been getting pretty high praise from fans and critics, some even stating that it may be the best artwork to rival Prince’s album for Plectrum Electrum. Which if you haven’t seen his new artwork for single Breakfast Can Wait, please do. It’s fucking awesome with a dash of Dave Chappelle.
Anyways, I think the cover really captures the essence of Danny and is a perfect fit for his Old album. Plus with features A$AP Rocky, ScHoolBoy Q, Ab-soul, Kitty, Purity Ring, Freddie Gibbs, Mr. MFN eXquire, Scrufizzer, Rustie, A-Trak and Charli XCX, who really is going to be paying that much attention to the cover?
September 30 October 8.
