UPDATE: Lloyd has unveiled a striking cover for the upcoming EP. Taking to Instagram, he also explained the inspiration behind the artwork. “No auto tune when I record. No photoshop when I’m photographed,” wrote the singer. Peep it below.
Here is my official cover art for "TRU", the ep, which will be available for pre order this week on iTunes. This photo means a lot to me. It's not about exploiting myself, as many would like to believe. Yet, it is about accepting myself for how I am. Letting go of all the fears, inhibitions, and insecurities that exist inside of me sometimes. Embracing the fact that my "flaws" are only projected onto me by others, but never existent inside of my own mind, because there are no perfect people out here in this world. And it's about eliminating the gimmicks, the magic tricks, the stage antics. No auto tune when I record. No photoshop when I'm photographed. No pretending I'm something I'm not. I can accept what I have instead of longing for what I wish I did, and I know that even though that may not be good enough for everybody, somebody will love me more for it. #TRU #December9 📷: @benstylestv
