After two weeks of fevered anticipation, the wait is over: Kendrick Lamar's new album DAMN. has officially arrived.
As previously reported, the 14-track offering is the official follow-up to K. Dot's critically-acclaimed, Grammy-winning album To Pimp A Butterfly. The album features key cameos from Rihanna and U2, and production from the likes of Mike WiLL Made-It, 9th Wonder, The Alchemist and Cardo.
We still need more time with the album, but this much is clear: DAMN. is a completely different endeavor from any of his past offerings. While To Pimp A Butterfly was jazzy, warm and full-bodied, DAMN. feels more sparse and experimental and straightforward. But as always with Kendrick, there's still likely more beneath the surface.
Stream the album below on Spotify, Apple Music or Tidal, or buy it on iTunes. Physical copies will also be available in stores on Friday. Also, check out REVOLT's additional Kendrick Lamar coverage.
