Santigold has revealed the cover art for her upcoming new album Master Of My Make Believe. The artwork features her shot in three different ways: as attendants wearing custom bodysuits; as a distinguished army officer; and as a dominating mafia Don in the centre.
Watch the video about its conception.
Speaking to V Magazine, Sanitgold said she has worked with Greg Kurstin, Switch, Dave Sitek and Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs on the record, and that part of the record was recorded in Jamaica.
“I’m really hands-on with everything … It’s the difference between an artist and a plain pop star, right?” she said.
Sanitgold said the album’s title draws on the theme of the listener creating their own interpretations.
“My record is called Master of My Make-Believe because I want it to be about creating your own reality,” she said.
“I have a song called The Keepers: ‘we’re the keepers, while we sleep in America our house is burning down.'”
It’s been 4 years since her debut self-titled album. She’s been busy working on the new LP with producer Pharrell Williams, as well as Diplo, Switch and Spank Rock.
