Lamar is expected to release the follow-up to his acclaimed 2017 album ‘DAMN.’ later this year. A recent report from a journalist in the US claimed that the Compton rapper is “close” to completing his new record, and that it will “pull in more rock sounds”.

Lamar is also slated to headline a number of European festivals in 2020, including Lollapalooza Stockholm, Open’er Festival, Bilbao BBK Live and WOO HAH! Festival.

Emily Eavis recently heightened speculation that Lamar could top the bill at Glastonbury 2020 after confirming that the one remaining unannounced Pyramid Stage headliner has never played the festival before.
