One of Kanye West's five album covers for his forthcoming My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy LP was revealed after it was posted to a pre-order page on Amazon.com, and if the image — A George Condo painting of a ballerina dressed in a black tutu holding a martini glass — seems familiar, it's because the image was initially used as the artwork for the "Runaway" single before West instead chose an image of an actual ballerina.
West revealed that Dark Twisted Fantasy would include five different covers after his original cover — another Condo painting featuring a grotesque Kanye with a nude winged woman — was "banned" by powers unknown, or so Kanye claimed (a Wal-Mart rep said the company hadn’t seen the artwork). Kanye said that all five covers will be included within the copies of the album when it hits shelves on November 22nd.
