Last Friday, with almost no notice, Future released a massive new 17-track self-titled album. Yesterday, rumors floated around about another massive Future album, one that would be coming out this Friday, just a week after the last one. As it turns out, those rumors were entirely correct. Last night, Future announced the impending release of the new LP HNDRXX. The new album also spans 17 tracks, and that’s the (kind of incredible) cover art above. On Instagram, he called it “the album I always wanted to make, timing is everything.” Beyond that, there’s no news about the album — no song titles, no named collaborators, nothing. We’ll hear it soon enough.
Also last night, Future was the musical guest on The Tonight Show. With only a hyperactive DJ Esco behind him, Future ran through a snarly take on “Draco,” one of the tracks from the self-titled album. These days, it’s a bit weird how Esco is way more of a performer than Future himself. Check out the performance below, as well as something that Future wrote about HNDRXX on Instagram.
who told u,you couldn't b exactly who u wanted to be? They lied,they wasn't bold they didn't have the ambition they didn't have the courage they was mislead they didn't believe in they self when no one else would they cared about what other people thought of them they gave up not knowing god wouldn't give u more than u could handle they didn't sew seeds they didn't have the passion they didn't have the drive they didn't tell u all of there flaws because they was scared of not being accepted by there peers they said I can't I tried I need help but not me #HNDRXX
Future is out now on Epic/A1/Freebandz. HNDRXX is out 2/24. I wonder if he’ll just release a new album every Friday for the rest of the year.
UPDATE: Here’s the tracklist; the only features are the Weeknd and Rihanna.
