Rita Ora Reveals Artwork for Debut Album ‘ORA’

Pop siren Rita Ora is preparing for the release of her debut LP ‘ORA’ via Roc Nation in September. The ‘How We Do’ singer unveiled on Wednesday (July 4) the cover art to her album and, let’s just say, it displays the aura of the 21-year-old pop newbie.

The black-and-white artwork (pictured left) shows a close-up shot of a shocked-and-awed Ora pulling her blonde hair over the right side of her face and wearing a heavy chain around her neck. We also noticed that she’s wearing a huge watch (possibly a Rolex?) on her wrist.

Back in April, when Ora was doing the photo shoot for her album cover, she explained what she was trying to convey with the imagery. “Everything was inspired basically by being bossy, by being independent, and by taking your own,” she told VEVO UK (via Punchbowl Blog). “We made sure that everything had character. Everything about my pictures, I wanted them to be moments and to be something that you caught.”

Following the success of the Drake-penned hit ‘R.I.P.,’ which reached No. 1 in the U.K., Ora plans to release ‘How We Do’ (Party) as the follow-up single on Aug. 12.

As for the album ‘ORA,’ according to reports, the album will be released in the U.K. on Aug. 27 and then in the United States in September.

“Three years it took me to do this album,” she told VH1′s Big Morning Buzz. “It’s going to be fun. I wanted to make a fun album, because I haven’t really been through a heartbreak, so I didn’t really want to write anything [sad] … I’ll leave that to Adele for now.”
