Later this week, Kendrick Lamar is set to drop his new album. In anticipation, he’s unveiled the album’s title: the follow-up to 2015’s To Pimp A Butterfly will be simply known as DAMN. He’s also shared the album’s artwork (which you can see above) and 14-song tracklist.
Both Rihanna and U2 are featured contributors, while James Blake, BadBadNotGood, and super producers The Alchemist and Mike WiLL Made It all have composing credits.
Like the album itself, all 13 tracks have capitalized one-word titles, such as “BLOOD.”, “DNA.”, “PRIDE.”, “LOVE.”, and “GOD.” Previously revealed teaser track “HUMBLE.” is also included. The 13th and final track is dubbed “DUCKWORTH.”, Lamar’s real-life last name.
DAMN. arrives Friday, April 14th. Two days later, Lamar will take the stage as the Sunday night headliner at Coachella.
