We're still processing news on Jay Z's upcoming album, 4:44, but there's a lot more on the horizon for the Brooklyn native. According to a report from Page Six, Jay will supplement his new project with a tour beginning this fall, his first since he linked up with Beyoncé for the On the Run Tour in 2014.

Though this is great news for Jay Z fans, that's a long time to wait for a tour, and it's not without reason. Page Six claims the tour to accompany 4:44 was originally scheduled to start this summer, but the birth of the couple's twins will keep Jay and his wife busy raising their children during the summer months.

As it stands, Jay Z has three festival dates lined up in the fall: Meadows, Made in America, and Austin City Limits.

Since we're still in the dark on a lot of what 4:44 has to offer, it's hard to say what the tour is going to look and sound like. We have a few major pieces of info on the new project—including No I.D. being heavily involved—and we know the release date, but we're waiting on Jay's word otherwise. Jay always brings it during live performances, though, and his universal respect in hip-hop usually leads to a ton of special guests joining him as he tours around the country. With months of prep time to gear up for a new tour, feel free to let your expectations run wild. 

Complex has reached out to a rep for Jay Z for comment, and we'll update this post if and when we hear back.
