Kendrick Lamar Officially Announces Album Release Date, Production Credits Surface


In his recent single “The Heart Part 4”, Kendrick Lamar hinted at a big release on April 7th. Now we’re here and there’s no album. However a preorder for his new album has hit iTunes with an official release date of April 14th so we’re all just going to have to wait another week, but at least the production credits have surfaced in the meantime.

The name of the album has yet to be revealed, but we do know that it clocks in at 14 tracks and includes his recent viral single “HUMBLE.”. We can always count on reddit users to do some extra digging and signposthead found a way to pre-order the album and see composer credits (producers) on the album, and his process of viewing this has been verified. 

The album includes production credits from James Blake, BADBADNOTGOOD, Mike WiLL Made-It, The Alchemist, Steve Lacy (of The Internet), 9th Wonder, DJ Dahi, Cardo and his frequent collaborator Sounwave as well as members of U2. See full credits below. Stay tuned for more info and enjoy!
