Prince’s albums are “so much deeper than just songs”, according to the singer’s new album covers.
The covers of his new album, A Little Less Lonely, which he released on Friday, are a nod to the pop star’s childhood in Queens and his relationship with his father, Bobbi.
“When you’re a kid growing up in Queens, it’s always been very important to you to be able to see things that weren’t there,” the singer told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
The covers feature some of Prince’s favorite songs, including “I’m Gonna Take You to the River,” “You Don’t Know Me”, “One of These Nights” and “One Dance”. “
We were able to share that story and that was very important for me growing up, to see that a certain way.”
The covers feature some of Prince’s favorite songs, including “I’m Gonna Take You to the River,” “You Don’t Know Me”, “One of These Nights” and “One Dance”.
The covers also include the first glimpse of the singer in a wig and an eye mask.
The album’s cover, created by British illustrator Tim Allen, features a horse, a dog, a cat and a cow.
“A lot of my favourite images of Prince are from the covers,” said Allen, who has worked on several Prince albums.
“That’s why it’s so important to have his music as an art form, that’s why he’s so successful.”
