  1. Stunning... but hopefully I Want Your Love is on it. It's the perfect time for her to be featured on another album without it ruining any other plans she might have.

  2. I think Chic dropped her collab after so long (and recording with thousand artists). Not sure, but their last mention of her was like late 2016 or early 2017? Well, who knows...

    (Also my first post on my fav's thread, hi guys!!).

    edit: Oh so they just ended me and mentioned her on VMagazine article that came out with the cover.

    "How do you think the music reflects the art? Did you take that music and modernize it for today, like with the artwork?

    To a large extent, yes, because how could I not? I’ve learned so much. I’ve been recording for over the last 20 years with Lady Gaga, Avicii, Disclosure, Daft Punk–that’s going to rub off. [...]"

  3. I need this collab to happen/make the final cut. I need disco Gaga in my life to comfort my little gay soul.
     
  4. It's out on September 7. Hopefully we get to know the tracklist soon.

     
  5. Even if it’s just the full I Want Your Love, I hope she’s on it. All the hyping from him forever needs to lead to some payoff.
     
  6. That had so much potential, but the execution is godawful. The color balance on both of them is so different and they are so obviously pasted together. They pushed the black girl's shadows all the way to blue while the white girl has a relatively neutral coloring.
     
  7. Sis it’s an album cover. All things go. I think it looks fantastic!
     
  8. I guess from far away it still looks great, but I would want stuff like this corrected if I were to get it on vinyl or something.
     
  9. (The model on the right isn’t white)

  11. But it’s not a mistake? They wanted them to look like this.
     
  12. I made a quick correction to show what I'm talking about. Yes, yes, who cares, well, I do.

    Light skinned, then.

  13. I was feeling something off about the cover but I really couldn't get it right ddd
    it gives me graphicdesignismypassion.png tease, but your edit makes it natural. Love it.


    Now hoping for a song on the final cut.
     
  14. But...the designer maybe wanted the girls too look strange and otherworldly - it’s not their album cover.

  17. I love Duckie and Jazelle.

  18. I just watched footage of them shooting the cover yesterday, and they definitely weren’t pasted together.



    And I imagine they pushed the shadows into blues because it’s generally a design rule not to work with black because it sucks all the other colors out of the image.

  20. The problem here is that they only pushed the black model's shadows into blue, but not the other one's, which makes for a jarring, "unrealistic" effect, which is why I thought they were pasted together: they look like they were shot under completely different lighting conditions. When a shadow is "colored", it means that bounce light from the setting is reflecting on it and illuminating it slightly with its own color, which means that it should apply to everyone and everything in the frame. It doesnt look "intentional" or even otherworldly. They didn't go full abstract or surreal with strong colors and artificial values, one model is perfectly neutrally color graded while the other had a very strong hue pushed on top of her.

    By the way, I am not talking out of my ass here. I know "design rules". I am a designer and illustrator, and I extensively study how to render light and shadow / color theory on a daily basis.

    Also I hope this post doesn't come off combative or like I'm trying so hard to prove I'm right, I'm just trying to make my issue with the cover clearly understood, since this topic interests me a lot.
