Rob Zombie has unveiled the artwork for his new remix album, Mondo Sex Head . While the cover is a black-and-white retouched photo of a kitten’s face with one bright-red eye, it wasn't Zombie’s original idea for the album’s artwork. His original idea, which he changed due to pressure from retailers, was to use a black-and-white picture of a scantily-clad female model wearing some very revealing low-cut shorts.
“I never thought it would be a problem since it seemed tame to me…but it was,” Zombie tells Rolling Stone . “No one would carry the CD. Anything with death and violence is totally fine, but anything with sex, forget about it. So instead of censoring that cover and ruining it, I just removed the ass shot and replaced it with a p***y shot.”
Mondo Sex Head , set to arrive in stores on August 7, features new and unique remixes of some of Zombie’s hit songs by a number of popular electronic dance music DJs including Korn frontman Jonathan Davis ’ alter ego, J Devil .
You’ll get your first chance to check out the album if you attend the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con opening night attendee welcome party, titled "Dawn of the Con," next week. Zombie will previews tracks from Mondo Sex Head during the event as well as offer fans the chance to win exclusive merchandise.
