Album Cover: Santigold – ‘Master of My Make-Believe’

Master of My Make-Believe

Santigold takes on three different roles on the regal cover of her sophomore album Master of My Make-Believe, due May 1. In the photo shot by Jason Schmidt, the Philadelphia-bred singer transforms into a “Bond girl” wearing a gold bodysuit by Alexander Wang, an army officer inspired by a painting by Kehinde Wiley, and a mafia Don (“Some sort of ruler in my own reality,” she says). The artwork is based off 18th-century British artist Joshua Reynolds’ painting of Banastre Tarleton titled “Portrait of an Officer.”

Go behind the scenes of Santi’s cover shoot at Explorer’s Club in New York.
