Along with revealing the album's title, Gaga also unveiled the cover artwork. It consists of an image of the singer's left profile, with her wearing a pink, wide-brimmed hat, against a blue background. The hat was designed by milliner Gladys Tamez who revealed it was another source of inspiration behind the overall direction of Joanne. The milliner explained to The Daily Beast that one of the hats was inspired by English singer Marianne Faithfull. She added, "Gaga was the first to ever request this hat in pink, because it's her favorite color". Tamez named it "Lady Joanne" and added that Gaga had her change the shape, color and the ribbon on the hat. While designing the cover and the overall image, Tamez and Gaga spoke of using more pastel colors, inspired by the 1970s.

"I've been good friends with Bloodpop for several years," says Norris, "and he had been telling me for a while that he was working on the LG6 project with Gaga. I heard demos from time to time at his house. In January 2019 he asked me if I could try some production stuff on one of the demos. Fast-forward six months, he hit me up again, and said that they were beginning to finalise songs at Henson. The idea was to have Ben mix the vocals, and I would mix the instrumentals. I tried out one or two songs initially, and they liked what I did, so I ended up moving my studio setup there to do the full album. It ended up being from August 2019 to early March of this year. 2b1af7f3a8
