Earlier this week, Blake premiered his latest song ‘Famous Last Words‘ on Apple Music’s The Zane Lowe Show. It follows July’s ‘Say What You Will‘ and last month’s ‘Life Is Not The Same‘.

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.

Blake recently said that he wants to make “plenty more” music with Dave.

The musician contributed vocals and production Dave’s latest record, ‘We’re All Alone In This Together‘, which came out this summer and followed on from the rapper’s 2019 debut ‘Psychodrama’.

“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.’”
