The multi-instrumentalist and producer’s fifth album is set for release on October 8 via Polydor. It was recently pushed back from its original September 10 release due to vinyl pressing delays amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Blake’s first full-length album in two years will include guest appearances from SZA, JID & SwaVay, and Monica Martin.
“I think [Dave] kind of wanted me to executive produce the record, but in the end he was making all the decisions,” Blake told GQ. “Halfway through the record I was like: ‘Hold on, you’re exec producing this and you’re brilliant at it, so let’s just finish it off.’”
