Kehlani surprised fans yesterday when she revealed that she’s got a new album titled It Was Good Until It Wasn’t, dropping next month.

The Oakland native made the announcement on her 25th birthday yesterday, posting the cover art to her Instagram. The cover shows Kehlani peering over her garden wall with a hose in her hand.

“The album cover is a depiction of the never-ending duality of ‘good’ and ‘bad.’ It’s a tale of perspective,” Kehlani explained in a press release. “The sun is shining, the sky is blue, but clearly something has gotten my attention. Paired with the back cover, we come into the question of is the grass really greener on the other side? Good things are good…until they aren’t. Then, were they ever really good?”

The R&B singer has been treating fans to quarantine-inspired DIY content like her self-shot music videos for “Everybody Business,” and “Toxic,” which are expected to make an appearance on the album.

It Was Good Until It Wasn’t drops on May 8.
