Dr. Dre Announces New Album Compton: The Soundtrack, Explains Why Detox Never Came Out

A few days ago, Ice Cube said that the soundtrack to the upcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton was coming soon and would be a new Dr. Dre album “inspired by Compton.” Now, as Pitchfork points out, Dr. Dre has just officially announced his third solo album Compton: The Soundtrack on his Beats 1 radio show The Pharmacy, where he was joined by Ice Cube and Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray. The LP will be released this coming Friday as an Apple Music exclusive. Dre also revealed that the long-awaited Detox never came out because he wasn’t happy with it and scrapped the whole thing: “I didn’t like it. It wasn’t good,” he said. “The record, it just wasn’t good … I worked my ass off on it, and I don’t think I did a good enough job.”
