Kendrick Lamar is giving fans a glimpse at the artwork for his new album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers.

On Wednesday, the rapper took to social media to share the album cover which features him holding a child while wearing crown of thorns. In the background a woman sits on a bed, cradling another child in a diaper.

Lamar captioned the photo with the album’s name and gave credit to Renell Medrano, who shot the cover.

The reveal comes just days before the release of his fifth studio effort, which is set to drop Friday, May 13. It’s his first studio album since 2017’s Damn.
