Drake has revealed the cover of his new album Nothing Was The Same, which will be released on September 24 and pictures him as both a man and child.
The artwork was posted on his official website as two separate images, suggesting that we may see the matured Drake on one side of the CD and his younger self on the other.
The pictures suggest a reflective theme to the album, which was echoed in his most recent single ‘Started From The Bottom’ that looks at how he rose to fame.
Nothing Was The Same will be released a week later than expected and features guest spots from Jay Z and Lil Wayne and production from Hudson Mohawke.
Since 2011′s critically-acclaimed Take Care, Drake has also released the tracks Girls Love Beyonce, 5AM In Toronto and The Motion, which may all appear on the record along with another new song called Connect.
He previously said of the LP: ‘This album is about growth. When I play it for people, they ask, ‘Who’s that rapping?’ I’m like, ‘That’s me.”
