Rising R&B star Chloe Bailey has revealed the cover of her upcoming album, In Pieces.
The cover art shows the Chloe x Halle artist with red hair, draped in a Victorian-style dress, holding a heart in her hand.
Explaining about the idea behind the album cover, Bailey wrote on Twitter, “I saw a photo of a porcelain doll 3 years ago, holding her heart just like this and from then, I said this will be my album cover… that same day I also wrote heart on my sleeve.”
“The beginning of a scary and exciting journey for me. This cover represents so much for me, down to the color of my hair. When I had red hair 1.5 years ago, it was one of the darkest times in my life. That’s why I never wore it again,” she added.
Speaking about the inspiration for the album, Bailey said, “In Pieces is for the ones who behind closed doors are breaking and don’t know how much more they can take. In Pieces is for the ones who hold the people up around them while barely holding themselves.”
“In Pieces is for the people who continue to get stabbed in the back, heart broken by the ones they thought they could trust, but STILL that doesn’t change their heart and how they love,” she continued. “In Pieces is for the ones like me, who wear their outer shell so well that you’d have no idea what they’re going through.”
In Pieces is set for release on March 31 via Parkwood Entertainment/Columbia Records.
