Album Cover: Dawn Richard – ‘Whiteout’

Whiteout

Dawn Richard gets cheeky on the black-and-white cover for her Christmas EP Whiteout. The “’86″ singer poses in a chainmail helmet and leotard with her back to the camera in an outttake from her Armor On cover shoot. Due December 1, the project includes her 2011 single “December Sky” and four new tracks.

“This is strictly for the Die Hearts out there,” said Dawn, referring to her loyal fan base. “The focus is on the album, but we wanted to do something special for the movement that has been following us for a while.”

See the tracklisting and look for Dawn’s full-length debut GoldenHeart at the top of next year.

    @jeryy, nobody is pressed babe. Y’all so set on numbers. She will deliver the same amazing vocals she always does. She cares less about approval from y’all. I think Eli meant. If artist can be baked on a cover and y’all say its art. dawn can have a body suit on and it not be tasteless I mean Ri is always naked and its fine but then people judge others when they do risky stuff. This is art as well. Regardless of sells its a Xmas EP it’s not meant to do anything. It’s strictly for people who want to listen to it

    What can I say man. A a chainmail helmet and her ass in the foreground ? Does she try to portray herself as a kind of sexy warrior ? As someone who’s “slaying” ? “Fierce” ? And any other type word that female singers always use to describe their joints or even themselves ? How is it any different from the competition ?

    That’s played out. My opinion is that poetic/artistic license should not be an excuse for doing something that I feel is tasteless.

    But that’s how I feel.

    This would be a much sexier cover if we could see it with color but whatever it looks great.

    @Jay Z, I get why you’d wanna see it in color. Me too. She’s got gorgeous brown skin. But it wouldn’t make sense, lol The title is “Whiteout” so I think she made sense using a Black & White filter.

    I like the cover!!! If anyone noticed, the Armor On EP showed her face with the same type of headpiece on and then this EP is showing her back… almost as if she’s leaving this Armor On era behind & moving forward to the Golden Heart era. That’s what I take from it. Everything Dawn does has a concept to it. And even if it’s not the same as her concept, she still allows us (the hearts) to interpret it however it may fit our individual story.

    I mean at the end of the day… it’s more music from Dawn. I’ll take it, shit! I love her! Lmao.

    I love this cover man. It’s kind of eery and generates a feeling of solemness from the gray sky and and perseverance from the image of her looking at the mountain. So what if part of her ass is showing. What really matters is the DOPE music that’s gonna be on this EP and the Goldenheart album.
