Drake Projects 'Views from the 6' Artwork onto London's Royal Opera House
Published Apr 06, 2016While we're still waiting for official word on when Drake's forthcoming Views from the 6 will hit our ears, you can now feast your eyes on the album art. The cover was unveiled on the side of a building in London today (April 6).
As Fader's Twitter account points out, a projection of the artwork was plastered on London's Royal Opera House at 8:20 p.m. local time. The image, an illustration of a hand forming a six around an eyeball, will be familiar to fans, having previously appeared affixed to singles like "Summer Sixteen."
UPDATE (4/6, 4:20 p.m.): Pitchfork now disputes the report that this is the album art, stating it is rather a promotional image in support of the album. The album is said to be arriving near the end of April.
UPDATE (4/6, 5:15 p.m.): Fader now reports that the Island Records representative was incorrect, and reached out to them to note that the projection was actually done to tease the album. The rep now says that this is "100% not the album artwork."
Representatives from Island Records, Drake's UK label, have since confirmed with Fader that this will also serve as the cover art Views from the 6.
It had previously been teased that Views from the 6 is due sometime this month. While it's as yet unclear exactly when that will be, Drake put his "Pop Style" single with Jay Z and Kanye West and "One Dance" up on iTunes yesterday (April 5).
