Daniel Arsham’s portrait sculpture, which is robust looking Usher with clay imperfections will open in New York at the Galerie Perrotin.

“The portrait sculpture of Usher is made in ash and Crystal, as if we are in the year 2800 looking at an eroded statue made of you in 2016. The cracks and erosions in the sculpture represent “Flaws” and that things and people are not always as perfect or beautiful as they appear on the outside – relating to some of the themes in the album.” – Daniel Arsham

Earlier this week, “Bump” was also leaked. “I don’t know where we’re going and I don’t know what to call this,” he sings on the track. “I don’t know how it started, but I’m ready to go.”
