Kendrick Lamar’s newest album is almost here and it’s full of surprises!

On Tuesday (April 11), Lamar released a few new details about his upcoming album including its title, cover art and track list, and it’s making the countdown to new music a little more bearable.

So what’s the new album called, you ask? Well, according to Lamar’s Instagram account, the follow-up album to 2016’s untitled unmastered record is titled DAMN.

The 29-year-old hip hop artist released two pictures of the cover, one of him wearing a white tee and starring down while standing in front of a brick wall, and another wearing the same thing, but in front of a black-and-white wall.

Each image has the title “DAMN.” across the top of it. The picture with red writing is the main album cover, while the one with green writing shares the tracks from the new record.

From what we can see, DAMN. will include his hit single, “Humble,” which has already hit number two on the Billboard charts. Plus, it has two epic collaborations!

The album will feature a new track titled, “Loyalty” featuring Rihanna, and “xxx” featuring U2!

Sounds pretty exciting, right? We seriously cannot wait to see what the rapper has up his sleeve with this record. Luckily its release date is right around the corner and will include 14 new songs for us to listen to on repeat.

Plus, just days after the album drops (this weekend), Lamar will be performing at Coachella Music Festival, so all you festival-goers can hear the new music live!

DAMN. is available on April 14, 2017.
