Lady Gaga has revealed the cover art for her upcoming sixth album, Chromatica, and it could pass as the still from a fierce, fabulous sci-fi action flick.
In a series of photos she shared on Sunday (April 5), Gaga rolls with the aesthetic she introduced in the music video for “Stupid Love,” Chromatica’s first single. The cotton candy-pink hair is back, but Chromatica‘s cover is a bit darker and sharper than the vibrant desert dance party of “Stupid Love” and the bold magenta graphic with the album’s logo she previously introduced.
Think Mad Max: Fury Road meets Alien, but with a Haus of Gaga twist: wearing galactic armor (and a pair of platform boots with a tusk and a knife for its heels), the pop star is lying across the grate of a metal structure and beneath the steely wave of Chromatica‘s insignia. One hand is covered in talons, the other a shoulder-to-fingertip sleeve covered in spikes.
The vinyl record and cassette cover feature Gaga in a different pose, this time with even longer claws and shimmering fuchsia shoulder pads.
The graphics arrive days after she announced that Chromatica‘s release — which was originally scheduled for May — would be postponed in light of the global coronavirus pandemic. She assured her fans then that she’d have “surprises” to keep them excited about Chromatica in the coming weeks, and these visuals definitely give Little Monsters something to savor as they await news of her new album release date.
