Lil Uzi Vert isn't one to ever do things half-assed. For his new album, titled 'Eternal Atake' he is going with an album cover that references a UFO suicide cult. The artwork is reportedly potential at this stage and was uploaded to celebrate his 24th birthday.
The cover art is a direct reference to Heaven's Gate cult - this cult was a UFO-based religion that existed in America, before a mass suicide of 39 members in 1997 ended it. The general principle was that the members believed the Earth was about to be "recycled" so they committed suicide to attempt to reach a spacecraft that was apparently hiding behind the Hale-Bopp comet. The cult leader, Marshall Applewhite, is Lil Uzi Vert's current IG profile pic.
The caption to the cover art that reads "Wanna hear? Do you think This is Track list cover or real deal", means this may not be the final work on his album, however, if it is, I hope there's a good explanation for the decision. Because I'm confused lmao.
