Much to the delight of her Little Monsters, Lady Gaga revealed the cover her new album via Twitter. The current queen of electro-pop has only a few weeks to go before ARTPOP, the follow-up to 2011’s Born This Way, releases but chose today as the day to share the cover art, created by artist Jeff Koons.
The cover depicts the singer nude* and, in one of her tweets, Gaga explained “I’m nervous & excited to share something that’s such a piece of my heart. Something I cherish deeply. A real depiction of my mind through his.” According to Gaga, the center image of her on the cover is a new sculpture done by Koons and will be exhibited on November 10, at the “artRAVE ARTPOP release party.”
* – Nude is nothing new with Gaga. Instead, it’s almost part of the norm.
