The wait is nearly over as Travis Scott has announced Astroworld will finally arrive Aug. 3.
The Cactus Jack boss teased his third studio album's impending release over the weekend with huge gold Travis Scott heads; one appeared on the top of Amoeba Music in the Los Angeles area, while another popped up outside of Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros.
On Monday, another gold head arrived, this time atop the Hard Rock Cafe in Manhattan.
Earlier this month, Travis rounded up a veritable supergroup of producers and artists to help finish Astroworld, including Gunna, Sheck Wes, NAV, Wheezy, Sonny Digital, and Fki 1st, the latter of which teased a fan-pleasing sequel to the classic Days Before Rodeo cut "Drugs You Should Try It."
Mike Dean also gave fans notice that the project was complete with a photo of a hard drive captioned, simply, "Got it."
This occurred on the same day Travis tweeted the below:
In the new trailer urging fans to have their "season passes ready," Scott confirmed the Aug. 3 drop date and gifted fans with an excerpt of "Stargazing," a previously unreleased track La Flame performed at Rolling Loud back in May.
Way back in September 2017, Scott detailed the real-life inspiration behind the album's name and his plans to bring a full-on amusement park experience to fans when he takes these new songs on the road. "I don't know why it hasn't been done already—I think people just don't do shit," he told Rolling Stone. "Who makes stages these days that are cool?"
Here's to hoping the results of Tame Impala's recent 30-minute studio session with Scott are included on the final Astroworld tracklist, which we now know for sure will include a pop-in from the previously mentioned Sheck Wes. Until then, keen an eye and/or an ear out for new episodes of .wav radio. Check out his interview with Zane Lowe below.
