Santigold Plays Herself on Her New Surreal Album Cover (BONUS: Watch The Making of The Epic Cover Art)

Since dropping the first two singles, musician Santigold recently released the cover art for her new upcoming album Master of My Make-Believe.  In a surrealist composite photo by photographer Jason Schmidt we see three versions of Santi White.  In the center Santi is seated on a leather throne of sorts, dressed as a man.  The seated Man-tigold is flanked by two bodacious Santigolds clad in gold swimsuits custom-made by designer Alexander Wang.  And in the backdrop there is an opulent painting by Kehinde Wiley of Santigold as an 18th-century British officer.  Personally commissioned by Santi, this is the first Wiley painting ever to feature a female subject.  All we can say is Santi looks stunning in all of her personas.  We can’t wait to hear this album!

Santigold’s sophomore album is due out May 1st.  Until then, check out the behind the scenes video of the making of this epic album cover.
