After announcing the 4/20 release of a new album called KOD earlier this week, J. Cole follows by revealing the cover art and tracklisting.
Looks like the project will have 12 new tracks. Apparently, there’s no features either, outside some mysterious featured guest called Kill Edward.
According to reports, “KOD” is an acronym for three different meanings: “Kids On Drugs,” “King Overdosed,” and “Killing Our Demons”. And, as you can see from the cover, these themes are reflected — including royalty, children, substance abuse, and death.
The illustrated cover features Cole with a crown, alongside elements like skulls and children doing drugs inside of his robe.
“This album is no way intended to glorify addiction,” reads the fine print above Cole’s head. The back cover also includes drawings of children and drugs.
KOD is due out Friday (April 20).
Below is the back cover and tracklist.
