Picture This!: Kylie Minogue - Kiss Me Once (Album Cover)

Oh Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy... It's coming soon!!!!!! Kylie Minogue is getting ready to release her 12th studio album "Kiss Me Once" in the spring. Even though we don't have an official release date for the album, she has given us the cover art above, and the first single "Into The Blue" has leaked online ahead of it's release to radio, which is meant to be January 27th. I'll talk about the single when the music video is released, but let's talk about the album cover.

Upon first glance, I love how sexy and playful she always looks, but there's something about this picture that makes me think it would have been great for a single cover. This may be because I'm comparing it to the Aphrodite album cover which just seemed more epic in it's ownership, but this just seems kind of safe. It makes sense with the rain streaked window and her pursed lips moving in for a kiss, but it's almost too literal. Maybe it's not even that, maybe it's just the font and placement of the album title that's bothering me. I think the glass should have been steamed up and the album title should have been written into the condensation. It's still a cute and flawless picture, it just looks like single cover art, not full on album cover art.

I'm wondering what the album will sound like, from the sound of the single, it's classic Kylie dance pop, but there was also that "Skirt" song that came out awhile ago, and given that she's now being managed by Jay-Z's "Roc Nation" company, I'm wondering if there will be a few surprises style-wise.

What do you guys think?
