Kendrick Lamar’s New Album Finally Has A Release Date

Written by Tom Williams on April 7, 2017

Kendrick Lamar teased the date of 7th April when he released his new song ‘The Heart Part 4’ recently, and while a new album hasn’t dropped today, a release date has.

An American iTunes listing has popped up online, allowing for pre-orders of a new K-Dot album which is due for release next Friday, 14th April via Top Dawg Entertainment. The album is currently titled ALBUM, and appears to include 14 songs, including Lamar’s latest track, ‘HUMBLE.’.

The album also features credits to “P. Hewson, D. Evans, A. Clayton & L. Mullen,” who are better known as U2, although it’s unclear whether Lamar has sampled a U2 song or written a new song with the band. Others credited for the album include BADBADNOTGOOD, The Alchemist, and one “J. Blake”, who could be singer and producer James Blake.

Here’s the iTunes listing:

Lamar released his previous full-length album The Pimp A Butterfly back in 2015, before releasing a smaller collection called untitled unmastered.. He’s been working on a new record with Rick Rubin since then, which he has described as a “very urgent” new album.
