Scott recently unveiled a new track during a live show earlier this month ahead of his upcoming album ‘Astroworld.’

The album, the follow up to 2016’s ‘Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight’ has no set release date, but is presumed to drop at some point later this year.

Scott, who had a baby with Kylie Jenner earlier this year, has previously featured on Miguel’s single ‘Skywalker’, with a video for the track seeing the pair perform a section on top of a police car.

Last year, the rapper was spotted in the studio with Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker,  but it’s not clear what has come of the sessions.
