The release of Drake's forthcoming new album, 'Nothing Was The Same', has been put back one week.

The striking artwork for rapper's third studio album, which runs over two separate covers featuring images of Drake as both a child and a man, has now been revealed on his official website. The site also confirmed that the album will now be released on September 24, one week later than previously scheduled. 'Nothing Was The Same' features guest appearances from Jay-Z and Lil Wayne plus production from Scottish producer Hudson Mohawke.

Speaking about the album earlier this year, Drake said: "This album is about growth. When I play it for people, they ask, 'Who's that rapping?' I'm like, 'That's me.'" The album will feature a song called 'Connect', of which Drake says: "That one hits you in the heart. It's painful and beautiful at the same time."

Drake unveiled new track 'Girls Love Beyoncé' earlier this year, as well as three further offerings entitled 'Start From The Bottom', '5AM In Toronto' and 'The Motion'. 'Nothing Was The Same' follows on from 2011 album 'Take Care', which has been certified platinum and has sold over two million copies to date.
