On the verge of dropping one of the most hotly anticipated albums of the year, Kendrick Lamar has confirmed the official release of a new single, posting a photo of its cover art on Twitter, captioned only with the track’s title–’i.’ Notably lacking in the mini-van department, the cover’s simple composition, depicting two figures dressed in red and blue (nice!) is already infused with the complex, semi-autobiographical approach to music which put K.Dot on the map. With the single set for release early next week, here’s hoping this signals more of the same.
