It feels like Travis Scott’s new album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, has been moments away from dropping for months.
In May, he said it was dropping “in a couple of fucking days.” In June, he said it was “coming out in a week.” Now, here we are, at the end of July, still with no album — but with another update. At a concert in New York on Tuesday night, Trav gave a firm date: August 5.
This seems substantially more promising than the last couple of briefings he gave on the album. This time around, there’s an actual date, and that date is a Friday, which is when albums are typically released.
He also previewed a new song off of the project, which you can watch below.
Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight follows up Travis’s debut album, Rodeo, which came out in September 2015.
