Singer Katy Perry finally unveiled the cover for her new album â€œTeenage Dreamâ€, which comes out on August 24, 2010. The cover artwork is a portrait of Katy by one of her favorite artists, Will Cotton, whose work has been a major inspiration for the singerâ€™s forthcoming album.
Katy decided to contact Will to tell him how much she appreciated his candy landscapes five months ago. They hit it off and he helped to create Katyâ€™s candy-world for the music video of the first single out of the new album, â€œCalifornia Gurlsâ€ featuring Snoop Dogg.
Said Cotton, â€œMy collaboration with Katy started out as a mutual admiration society.Â I’m delighted that my paintings are the inspiration for this video. My work is about creating a utopia where all desire is fulfilled all the time, but where pleasure and delight can turn dark and dystopic. Katy embodies the archetypes that I look for in a subject. It was thrilling to work with her and to see her inhabit my landscapes.â€
â€œThe day I found Will Cotton, I knew I wanted to live in his cinematic cotton candy world. A fantastically art-directed music video and one piece of timeless album artwork later, I can proudly say I am more than a fan. Will has been a sweetheart every step of the way and always open to collaborative ideas. I’m so happy to have discovered his candy-land, and so excited about our creative future togetherâ€ states Katy.
