UPDATE: A rep for Epic Records confirmed to Complex that this is not an official release from Travis and is in the process of being taken down. We'll continue to update this story as more details come out. It's still unclear how the project was uploaded to his official pages on Apple Music, Spotify, and iTunes. We've reached out to Apple Music and Spotify for comment on the situation. Travis also weighed in on the situation, calling it a "fake album."
Read the original story below.
A new collection of Travis Scott songs titled Days Before Birds appeared on streaming services Apple Music, Spotify, and Google Play on Friday morning. The 10 track album features Wale, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Lil Uzi Vert, and two tracks with an assist from Young Thug. It also incldues DJ Snake's Encore track, "Oh Me Oh My," featuring Scott, Migos, and G4shi.
It's unclear exactly what the songs are, but it could be some of the tracks that didn't make the cut for his recently released album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight. All the songs on the compilation have leaked or been released at some time before, so this could just be Scott's way of giving each track a proper release. This time, the album was not released under Epic, but was instead released under Grand Hustle, the Atlanta-based record label founded in 2003 by T.I.
Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight arrived in September and quickly became Scott's first No. 1 album, generating 50.2 million streams during its first tracking week alone. Since the release, Scott has been keeping busy, hinting that a new remix featuring Kanye West is on the way while also gearing up for his perfromance at Complex's inaugural ComplexCon going down this November. Scott, Skrillex, and Virgil Abloh will all take the stage night one for a memorable performance that's likely to be packed with some surprises.
