The new artwork comes from the artist who previously worked on her 2008 album 'New AmErykah, Pt. One: 4th World War'.
Erykah Badu is pictured as a woman with an open mind in the colorful artwork which will be used as a cover art for her upcoming studio album "New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh)". The artwork is made by EMEK, the artist who previously designed cover art of her 2008 effort "New AmErykah, Pt. One: 4th World War".
Along with the arrival of its cover art, a new song from the album which is due for March 30 U.S. release has also emerged. Titled "Strawberry Incense", this instrumental song is produced by Erykah and Madlib with Kirsten Agnesta playing harp on the hook.
As an effort to promote the forthcoming release, Erykah Badu will make several apperances on the small screen. On March 25, she will visit "The Wendy Williams Show" and stop by "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" five days later. The singer will continue the promotional effort by performing in "The Wanda Sykes Show" on April 3 and "Chelsea Lately" on date 5.
