Artwork Description
I wanted the design to be simple. It is a primal need to be loved no matter who we are, or what we do, hence I wanted the design to be a bit naive like our first love when we were young. The lyrics of a repeated loop of "I don't have to sell my soul, it's already in me" are painted boldly on two sides like a declaration, which makes the design even more succinct to the song.
