Madeintyo Shares Cover Art for New Album ‘Sincerely, Tokyo’
Madeintyo is preparing to release his debut album Sincerely, Tokyo and let loose the project's cover art today (Sept. 18).
The artwork, designed by Japanese graphic artist and clothing designer Verdy, features a portrait of Tyo in the style of a postage stamp. A press release states that the cover was unveiled as a mural near Los Angeles' streetwear district on Fairfax Avenue.
The album will be the "Uber Everywhere" rapper's first solo project since his EP True's World, released last August. He also dropped a joint mixtape with MyNamePhin titled I Bet You Get This All The Time in July.
Sincerely, Tokyo will include Madeintyo's single "Ned Flanders" featuring A$AP Ferg, which received a Lonewolf-directed video last month. The album will be the rapper's first solo project with any features.
"I know it’s been a min since I dropped my last project, been learning about myself as an artist, a friend, a father," Tyo captioned a post featuring the cover on Instagram. "THIS ALBUM is for the kids that love 'You are Forgiven' and a mixture of some of my friends that are helping me grow musically!"
Madeintyo hasn't announced the album's release date. View Sincerely, Tokyo's cover art and Tyo's upcoming tour dates below.
