N.E.R.D’s Comeback Album Now Has Mouthy Cover Art And A Confirmed Release Date

Comeback albums are a pretty hit-or-miss affair, but based on the early returns, it looks like N.E.R.D’s first LP since 2010’s Nothing is going to be just fine, as the Rihanna-featuring “Lemon” and the André 3000-assisted “Rollinem 7’s” are both gems. Now, we have some more concrete info about No_One Ever Really Dies: The group shared the cover art on Twitter (that’s it above), and revealed its December 15th release date.

The big question now, of course, is: Whose mouth is that on the cover? With its tongue proudly hanging out, the first thought that comes to mind is Miley Cyrus, and a quick Google image search for “Miley Cyrus tongue” solidifies this in my brain as a plausible theory. Meanwhile, the previously revealed tracklist is full of big-name, non-Miley contributions: Guest spots on the record come via Kendrick Lamar (on two tracks), Rihanna, André 3000, Gucci Mane, Wale, Future, M.I.A., and Ed Sheeran.
