The album’s iTunes page lists its release date as this Friday (April 14) – not last Friday (April 7) as many fans had expected.

Lamar recently described the album as “very urgent,” saying he wants to return to “addressing the problem” the way he did on his 2015 album ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’.


“I think now, how wayward things have gone within the past few months, my focus is ultimately going back to my community and the other communities around the world where they’re doing the groundwork,” Lamar told The New York Times.

“‘To Pimp a Butterfly’ was addressing the problem,” he continued. “I’m in a space now where I’m not addressing the problem anymore. We’re in a time where we exclude one major component out of this whole thing called life: God. Nobody speaks on it because it’s almost in conflict with what’s going on in the world when you talk about politics and government and the system.”
