Drake changes album title to ‘Views’ and previews new music in trailer video

Album will air on Beats 1 tonight before official release on Friday

Drake has changed his album title a day before its release, as well as preview new music in a teaser clip.

Drake’s new album ‘Views’ – previously called ‘Views From The 6’ – will be officially released on Friday (April 29), streaming exclusively on Apple Music. However, it gets its first play tonight on Drake’s OVOSOUND Radio show on Beats 1.

Ahead of its premiere and release, Drake has posted a short video to Twitter to promote the album, featuring instrumental music that could feature on the LP. Watch the clip below.

Universal Music Canada also confirmed to The Fader that Drake has shortened the album’s title.

Previously, Drake revealed the tracklist for ‘Views’. 2015’s hit single Hotline Bling is to feature as a bonus on the twenty-track album, alongside the recently released singles ‘One Dance’ and ‘Pop Style’.

Drake has also announced details of a US tour with Future as well as the line-up for his annual OVO Fest in Toronto.

The Summer Sixteen tour will begin on July 20 in Austin, Texas with Drake and Future performing on the same bill throughout that month and into August and September. The two rappers released joint mixtape ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ in 2015. Special guests on the tour include Roy Woods and Dvsn.
