Hayley Kiyoko is hitting 2018 (or #20gayteen, as she’s rebranded it) hard — and we’re only a week into the year. On Wednesday, it was announced that she’ll be playing Coachella’s Sunday festivals, joining a stacked lineup that includes Eminem, Cardi B and Miguel and the festival’s April 15 and April 22 dates.
Now, Kiyoko followed up the festival announcement revealing the seductive album art for her forthcoming full length, Expectations.
The photo shows the rising star perched on a leopard-print stool, gazing at a nude woman. The 26-year-old took to Instagram to explain the striking image. “Women are a constant inspiration to me and I want to translate that love and appreciation into physical art, through all my music and imagery,” Kiyoko said. “I want to inspire everyone to fearlessly show their power and strength and to celebrate the beauty of the female body in its truest form.”
Kiyoko also revealed the name of her next single, “Curious,” which will be out Jan 11. Check out her Expectations album art below.
