Rihanna announces new album title & unveils official abum cover...

'ANTI' is the official title of Rihanna’s upcoming, 8th studio album. Rihanna unveiled the artwork and title during her album artwork launch at the MAMA Gallery in Los Angeles last night. 
The album cover was painted by contemporary artist Roy Nachum. It shows a young Rihanna in her childhood with a gold crown covering her eyes, and a black balloon strung tightly to her wrist. 

The front and the back cover of the album is creatively inscribed with sculpted Braille poetry by Chloe Mitchel. This is the first time an album has ever incorporated physical Braille for blind people to experience by touch. Look at that. This gal really is giving us something to RIHmember! The album cover is so dope. It's very artistic and abstract. Not only that, it's different to anything she's ever done before, which is what many established artists should be striving for!

The official track list and release date is yet to be announced. Here is the back cover:

The artwork is a recreation of one taken from her childhood. It is inspired by this photo of herself during her first day of Daycare:
