Earlier today, T (The New York Times style magazine) premiered the album art for Santigold‘s upcoming sophomore record Master of My Make-Believe on their blog. The gorgeous photograph was shot by Jason Schmidt and inspired by 18th century painter Joshua Reynolds‘ “Portrait of an Officer.” For further details, head to T.

Sort of makes every other album cover released in the past year look like child’s (Photoshop) play, no?

Santi’s (amazing) new single, “Disparate Youth,” was released earlier this month, along with “Big Mouth” back in January.

Master Of My Make-Believe will be released on May 1. (iTunes)
