Astroworld led single “Watch” features Kanye West and Lil Uzi Vert.The title of the album was announced all the way back in May 2016, and the album was initially teased for a 2017 release. Its title is named after Houston’s closed-down theme park Six Flags AstroWorld. The cover was shot by photographer David LaChapelle and features a giant golden inflatable of Scott’s head as the park. A second cover features the same amusement park entrance at nighttime, with family-friendly features replaced with adult-themed content.
