Lil Nas X Reveals Cover of New Album Montero
Lil Nas X has revealed the cover artwork for his debut album Montero. The musician has said the art is inspired by SpongeBob SquarePants and John Stephens’ Genesis II. Check out the colorful cover below.
Back in 2019, Lil Nas X used his 7 EP artwork to foreshadow his coming out as gay. As reported at the time by TMZ, the rainbow buildings on the EP’s cover served as a nod to Lil Nas X’s sexuality. There is rainbow imagery on the cover of Montero, too.
Montero is out September 17 via Columbia. The record will open with “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” and also include the singles “Industry Baby” and “Sun Goes Down.”
