Lil Nas X Embodies Mother Nature in Bug-Centric Artwork

His next single, “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” is out March 26.

There are many days where I am thankful for Lil Nas X. There’s the time he trolled the rapper with 69 in his name, the time he gave us horny holiday splendor, and there’s the countless red carpets he’s sartorially owned. Today is another one of those days that Nas X has gifted us more joie de vivre.

Last week, the country-rap-pop musician announced that his next single “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” will be out March 26. Today, he continues to promote his work with some eye-catching artwork. It’s unclear whether this new surreal, romantic cover art—which looks like a million Animal Planet specials elegantly exploded on him—is more promotion for the forthcoming single or hinting at a larger project. It’s a photo with the capacity to have one’s eyes zipping all over. The photo was taken by Filip Custic, who also did the “Montero” single art.  You can pre-save the song here.
