Machine Gun Kelly just debuted the new artwork for his album Tickets To My Downfall, and just in time, homeboy’s album is set to drop in four days.
After MGK’s originally planned cover art caused him a bit of drama, when fans pointed out that the featured drawing drew references from a photograph by Sen Mitsuji without approval, Kelly knew he had to switch it up and made sure to tweet out an apology.
On Friday, along with the new cover reveal, Kelly also shared a behind the scenes look at “how we ended up with a new album cover.” This time around, instead of sourcing out an illustration, Kelly went with photos of himself.
The video features clips of a new song off the album and chronicles MGK “freaking out” as he finds out about the controversy around his cover art, only after signing 13,000 copies. After a video shoot that he felt was too “editorial,” Kelly, while skateboarding in his drained out pool, got inspired to shoot the album cover right then and there.
Tickets To My Downfall, drops this week, September 25 to be exact - and even though four days still feels like forever, we're not gonna lie, all this drama kind of helped the waiting process go by faster.
