Drake Releasing 'Views,' 'What A Time To Be Alive,' 'IYRTITL' on Vinyl
Drake will be releasing his last three music projects on vinyl, including Views, his collaboration with Future, What A Time To Be Alive, and his 2015 mixtape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.
Views was released back in April, and the other two projects were both unleashed in 2015.
Pitchfork notes that all projects are available for order now, with an expected release date of Oct. 7. Before the switch to vinyl, Views and If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late were only available on CD. Only Take Care has had a vinyl release from the rapper’s other studio albums, which include Thank Me Later and Nothing Was the Same.
The vinyl package is available for $74.98 on Drake's website. If You're Reading This It's Too Late and Views are available as a single vinyl for $34.98 each and What A Time To Be Alive is available for $19.98. Orders are expected to arrive on October 7.
Drake also recently announced that he is recording new songs during a performance in Washington for his Summer Sixteen Tour. He revealed the new works at the end of his show in Tacoma after he thanked the crowd.
“I been on this tour and I’ve been recording new music,” the rapper said. “I’m about like maybe six or seven new songs in. Just getting warmed up.”
“I don’t know where they’re going to end up or what it’s going to be, but I can’t wait to come back to motherf*cking Tacoma and play all that sh*t for you.”
Kanye West also recently revealed that the two are working together in the studio during an interview with Vogue for his Yeezy Season 4 show. Rumors about Drake and the "Famous" rapper began after a billboard featuring both of their music logos was spotted in Los Angeles. "Wolves" from The Life Of Pablo is allegedly inspired by Drake, and his also co-wrote "30 Hours" on the album.
