HarperCollins will release 'Go Set a Watchman' on July 14.

The cover for Harper Lee's new novel will surely remind you of the cover for her old one.

On Wednesday, HarperCollins unveiled the jacket art for Lee's Go Set a Watchman, the unexpected follow-up to her classic To Kill a Mockingbird.

The new cover, like the one for To Kill a Mockingbird, is a moody illustration featuring an oak tree in front. The art for Go Set a Watchman also shows train tracks and a train in the distance.

In a statement released by HarperCollins, company president Michael Morrison noted that Go Set a Watchman begins with Mockingbird protagonist Scout Finch returning by train 20 years later, in the 1950s, to her native Alabama.

HarperCollins has announced a first printing of 2 million copies and a July 14 publication date.
