Chance The Rapper could be set to release a new album this week, according to an interview he gave to the Chicago Tribune.
The album - for which we don’t have a title for yet - will apparently be released on the 21st July, to coincide with his headlining appearance at the Special Olympics anniversary concert, which takes place on Northerly Island in Chicago that day.
Chance told the newspaper: “I got that feeling when people do something that has a new feel to it. I’m excited for everybody to get that. It’s going to come out just in time for the Special Olympics.”
The new release will be separate from the seven-track record he’s currently working on with Kanye West. “We’ve just started making it, but I don’t want to manipulate the situation and impose any time frame, because that can hinder you,” he said.
Late last year, Chance The Rapper also teased a collaboration with Childish Gambino, with Donald Glover telling reporters at the Emmys: “I feel like I’ve gotta do something. I probably will.” The project is yet to be released.
