Houston rapper Travis Scott has finally provided a release date for his highly anticipated fourth studio album Utopia. The ‘SICKO MODE’ emcee has been teasing the project for several months. However, fans have been put at ease and now know when the body of work will land on streaming platforms.
The Texas musician (real name Jacques Webster) unveiled that the project will be available on July 28 and made an exciting announcement that a short film will accompany the album.
Scott delivered the news to his fans during his performance at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami over the weekend on July 22nd. He even showed fans a snippet of what they can expect from the short film by unleashing a thrilling trailer.
Entitled Circus Maximus, the film will be available in cinemas from Friday 28th. Akin to the album, Scott has teased the movie for many years. The trailer was shown on the festival’s big screen.
As previously planned, despite the confusion surrounding the event, the long-awaited release of Utopia will be celebrated by Scott with an epic live performance at the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt.
Egypt’s Musicians’ Syndicate was attempting to stifle the concert and revoke Scott’s permit for the July 28th concert last week. However, Live Nation assured fans that the performance at the Pyramids of Giza will still go ahead.
Utopia has been an overdue album. Scott held a mini-listening party for Houston’s baseball team, The Astros, and posted an Instagram photo of him exiting Abbey Road Studios with the mastered and finalised version of the project. You can watch the festival’s Circus Maximus trailer in the video below.
