On the eve of the release of his new album, "Magna Carta Holy Grail," Jay-Z has reveled the official album cover art for the project -- yes, that means the minimal mess of a cover attributed to the album before is no longer relevant.
Jay-Z released photos of the art on his website, showing the cover placed directly beside one of the four remaining Magna Carta 1215 documents located in the Salisbury Cathedral in Britain. The world premiere of the cover art is part of an art installation at the ancient cathedral. It will be on display through the end of July.
"Magna Carta Holy Grail" will be released through a distribution deal with Samsung with cell phone owners allowed early access to the album if they download an app for the new project to their wireless handsets by 12:01 a.m. EST on Thursday.
“Magna Carta Holy Grail” is Jay-Z's first solo album in four years.
The album will be released worldwide on Tuesday.
