It has been announced that Drake is set to delay the release of his forthcoming album For All The Dogs.
The album had previously been touted for a release date of September 22nd. In fact, in August, Drake revealed just about all the details, including cover art drawn by his son, indicating that the album was fully complete.
However, he has since altered these plans claiming that a “dilemma” has forced him to delay proceedings. This is not the first time that Drake has meddled with plans up until the last minute, so fans fearing that it hints at issues can rest easy.
On Instagram, the rapper explained: “Okay my dilemma I am faced with is I either cancel shows to finish the album or I complete the mission and drop the album before the last show. I owe you all these memories we are building and anywhere we have missed to date we will be spinning back for sure.”
He then went on to confirm that the album will now be release on October 6th. Everything else regarding the record remains unchanged, and, as stated, the delay is merely the result of a scheduling issue for the 36-year-old star.
In a recent interview on A Safe Place podcast with MitchGoneMad, Lil Yachty, who features firmly on the album, revealed, “It sounds current, you know? It sounds very current. It’s interesting, it’s coming together a lot better than I thought.“
He continued: “I just had a talk with him a couple days ago in Vancouver and I was like, ‘Man…’ I was a little worried, ’cause I have a lot of the songs, I don’t have all of ’em, I have a lot of ’em though. And I was just like, ‘Man, I just don’t know if it’s — how are you gon’ put this together?“
Gladly concluding: “Because it’s a lot of great songs but they don’t really — in my brain, I was like, they didn’t really sound together. And then we had a talk about it and he explained to me his thought process about it. And we drove somewhere, we drove to that video shoot which was like an hour away, and we listened to it, and it makes sense now.”
