Travis Scott Announces New Album 'Astroworld' Release Date
Just hours after large golden heads of Travis Scott mysteriously appeared in Los Angeles, Houston and New York, the GRAMMY-nominated rapper announced his long-anticipated solo album, Astroworld, will land on earth Aug. 3.
Scott broke the news via his Twitter account, complete with a trailer for the album with the subtitle "Stargazing." The video, which was directed by Nabil, shows Scott wandering through a dystopian-looking world rife with snow and majestic planets. It's both a little like this world and very much out of this world as he raps, "We propelling, on top with Ellen."

Astroworld is Scott's first solo project since his 2016 LP, Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight, though he has worked on many collaborations since then. Earlier this year the rapper also released the track "Watch," featuring Kanye West and Lil Uzi Vert.
