Hustle Gang’s Iggy Azalea is standing out with her long-awaited The New Classic solo album by donning eye-catching attire on the project’s cover art.
The Iggy Monster’s upcoming LP’s artwork surfaced online Monday (February 24).
Fresh off announcing her North American tour, Iggy Azalea unveils the cover for her debut The New Classic. The blonde bombshell stuns in a colorful Pucci bodysuit and jacket as she stands in front of a peach house. The album arrives April 15 featuring the singles “Work,” the T.I.-assisted “Change Your Life,” and “Fancy” with Charli XCX. If you pre-order on March 4, you will receive the instant gratification track “Impossible Is Nothing.” (Rap-Up)
Last fall, Iggy revealed the setback her LP suffered.
“The official date? F—ed if I know! It’s done, it’s so depressing to say this but it’s the beginning of March, it’s so far away but I just have to accept that,” she exhales, then takes a sharp intake of oxygen and launches into “It was supposed to be October but obviously I’m going on tour with Beyonce and they said I’m not allowed to put an album out while I’m on tour because I’ll be trapped in Australia and I won’t be able to do any TV appearances and I thought that’s fair enough, that’s three weeks and then they said ‘You can’t put an album out around Christmas time, that’s a bad time’ and I said ‘What about January?’ ‘Well [talking like a verbose record label type] nobody gets back off holidays and then it’s the Brit Awards, you can’t release an album, it’s terrible for marketing’ which brings me to February. The marketing team gets to control me unfortunately, I don’t get to control that.” (Herald Sun)
Azalea reportedly makes reference to her past fling with New York rapper A$AP Rocky on one of the tracks.
Another cut on the record is called Time Piece. When coaxed, Azalea is willing to explain what it’s about and although she doesn’t directly reference ex-boyfriend A$AP Rocky (who’s name she had tattooed on her finger then crossed out after they split in February) it’s mos def the elephant in the room. “It’s about a Rolex I bought for somebody that I had a relationship with. It’s saying, ‘You can keep the watch that I gave you but can I have all the time back that you f—ed off me? I wasted all my time on you, bought you this f—ng watch, can I get my life back?’ It’s real. I hope they don’t hate my guts when they hear it.” (Herald Sun)
Back in August, Iggy revealed her debut would come packed with 16 tracks.
