Kendrick Lamar might be in album mode as the rapper is set to perform in his third festival this year.
Glastonbury, the storied music festival that first started all the way back in 1970, announced its lineup of artists for the 2022 festival taking place June 22 to June 26, and among them is Lamar. Other notable artists that will be gracing the British stage are Billie Eilish, Paul McCartney, Diana Ross, and more.
Lamar’s inclusion on the Glastonbury roster marks the third festival he is confirmed to be a part of this year. It was revealed earlier this week that K. Dot will be headlining Rolling Loud Miami 2022 alongside Kanye West and Future. The rapper is also set to perform at Milan’s Summer Festival in Italy this summer, and promotional assets for the show say that fans should expect to hear new music from him as well.
Kendrick also recently changed his Spotify profile picture to a more up-to-date shot of himself, possibly indicating that new music is on the way.
It’s been five years since the West Coast giant released his last studio album, DAMN, and fans have been anxiously waiting for any kind of update from him on the arrival of new music. All of Kendrick’s recent movement might be a sign that new music is en route. He recently headlined the Super Bowl alongside Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, and Mary J. Blige, and he appeared on his cousin Baby Keem’s album The Melodic Blue to deliver some of the first bars we’ve heard from him in a while.
Glastonbury, Rolling Loud Miami, and Milan Summer Festival are all set to happen within months of each other this summer, so hopefully that’s around when a new Kendrick album might arrive.
