LOS ANGELES (AP) — Drake has finally announced a released date for his highly anticipated eighth studio album: “For All the Dogs” will drop Sept. 22.
The follow-up to 2022's “Honestly, Nevermind” — which released without warning — was announced on the Canadian rapper's Instagram on Wednesday night. Drake wrote the release date in the caption of the post, which featured video footage depicting his father, Dennis Graham.
A representative confirmed the date on Thursday.
Drake — who is currently on his “It's All a Blur” tour — had teased the project for a few months, including at a July 2023 New York City concert, where the rapper told the capacity-filled Barclays Center crowd his next album would drop in approximately “a couple of weeks.”
The 36-year-old megastar, known for surprise releasing music, teased the potential project at his intimate Apollo show in January.
