Travis Scott didn’t give much of a heads-up on Astroworld, his latest album which dropped at midnight.
Sure, the Houston rapper has been hinting at a new project for some months. Then, boom, on Monday came confirmation, with its title, release date and a trailer. It’s been a long week. The LP’s art, a twisted, Willy Wonka-esque fun-park visual, hit the web. And on Wednesday, we learned of the ASTROWORLD Collection, featuring a bunch of limited-edition merch. Earlier Thursday, Scott revealed its tracklist. Now, Astroworld is out in full.
Astroworld is the followup to Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, his Billboard 200 chart-topper from 2016, and his collaboration with Migos member Quavo from 2017, Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho.
The new, 17-track effort has a starry lineup of guests, including Frank Ocean (“Carousel”), Drake (co-writer on “Sicko Mode”), John Mayer and Thundercat (“Astrothunder”), Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, The Weeknd and Pharrell Williams.
