did doja cat change her album covers

Yesterday, Doja Cat revealed the cover artwork, title, and release date of her new album: Scarlet is out September 22. (By Thursday, she changed the cover.) The initial cover featured a painting of a big pinkish arachnid and a small drop of blood; it has no text.

“Updated cover,” the singer wrote on Instagram on Thursday (Aug. 31) alongside the new art, which features a hand-drawn, spider-like creature with pearls as a head and abdomen against a white background. See the post here.

The original art featured a fittingly scarlet-colored spider, but Doja seemed to have deleted the post and changed the cover after fans noticed that German hardcore band Chaver also used the same spider on the artwork for their upcoming album cover.

According to Stereogum, both Doja’s original album art and Chaver’s LP cover were designed by the same person, Portland-based artist Dusty Ray. An even stranger coincidence is that both albums will be dropping on the same day, September 22.

Two tracks from Doja Cat’s album have already been heard by fans: the lead single “Attention,” which was released in June and has so far peaked at No. 31 on the Billboard Hot 100, in addition to “Paint the Town Red,” which this week debuted in the top five of the Hot 100. “Red” topped this week’s Hot R as well, moving 5-1. She’s set to release another single, “Demons” on Friday (Sept. 1).

Following criticism that the updated cover for Doja Cat’s new album Scarlet bore a striking resemblance to the cover of a new album by German metallic hardcore trio Chaver, the band revealed the cover. The original artwork for the two records, which were scheduled to be released on September 22, showed paintings of dark pink arachnids under a drop of liquid. Both s were made by the artist Dusty Ray. Rather, a pair of arachnids with pink, orb-like bodies are shown in Doja Cat’s latest artwork locking lips together.

Of Gloom, which Chaver describe as “a trip to a place of pain,” will be released via BDHW and follows the Leipzig group’s 2020 album, A Cellar Door.

Pitchfork has contacted Dusty Ray, Chaver, and Doja Cat representatives for additional information and comments.

Announcing Of Gloom, Chaver wrote, “The striking cover art, masterfully crafted by Dusty Ray @sloppjockey_ert (who has been with us since our first album), serves as a captivating contrast to the albums intense music, setting the stage for a trip to a place of pain.”
