Chris Brown goes futuristic for the cover art of his new album 'Graffiti' and takes fans to the desert in the 'Crawl' on-set pictures.
A picture to be featured in the front cover of Chris Brown's new album "Graffiti" has been unleashed. Carrying futuristic theme, the artwork sees the R&B performer sporting all-black gear, holding an electric guitar on the right hand and a can of spray paint on the left.
In addition to the cover art, several on-set photos from "Crawl" music video have also been unveiled. Compiled into one-sheet picture, they show Chris in a trench coat, white T-shirt, fingerless gloves and glasses standing in a desert and alleyway. There is also a snap of him with Bad Boy's artist Cassie.
"Crawl" music video is directed by Joseph Kahn, the same guy who worked on Chris' "I Can Transform Ya" music video. "I mean, everything that's happened to him in the year, I think this is going to be his big statement, in terms of what he's feeling and what he's living through right now," Joseph recently told MTV about what Chris is trying to convey through the video.
"I don't even know if Chris is trying to say anything with the video. I think he just sort of, as an artist, I think Chris communicates more through what he does ... and so what he does in the video will speak for itself."
"Crawl" has been played on radio since last month, while "Graffiti" will not arrive in U.S. market until December 15.
