Shortly after the releases of Pusha-T’s DAYTONA and Kanye West’s ye, G.O.O.D. Music season continues.

The collaborative project Kids See Ghosts drops this Friday, June 8. There have only been a few details about the forthcoming album. We know a little about the tracklist-in-progress and the listening party set to be held in LA this Friday. However, the album artwork has been revealed. We also know that it will be released with a short film by Dexter Navy.

Kid Cudi took to Twitter last night to share the cover, designed by Takashi Murakami.

Teased a few months back, the cover is designed by iconic Japanese artist Takashi Murakami and offers a look into the tone of the album.

Recalling the colour palette he used on Kanye’s Graduation album, Murakami referenced Japanese folklore and traditional ukiyo-e woodblock printing with his signature Superflat character styling.

Take a look at the Takashi Murakami-designed album cover.
