    It's still as-of-yet unknown what most of the song titles are (other than lead single "Humble"), what the name of the album is, and what the album cover looks like, but the pre-order page is now up on iTunes.

    An expected release date of April 14, 2017--one week from now.

    Here's the lead single for those who missed it:

    I haven't figured out the song yet but the video is Video of the Year material.

    I wonder if the physical will be released this Friday? I haven't seen any pre-orders anywhere.

    Now that's what I call an unexpected cover and title!

    Color me skeptical on the U2 feature. I'm sure it will turn out to be great but I just can't imagine how.

    Thanks for the announcement, this is great news! Instead of knowing and having to wait, I like these last-minute album announcements.

    Funny about the Grey Poupon reference and scene in the video, I just watched an analysis of Grey Poupon references in Hip-Hop just a few days ago (probably linked from somewhere on SHTV):

    Love Kendrick. Can't wait to listen to the track with U2 and especially the Rihanna one!

    Ha ha! I was in Walmart today and I looked for it just in case they put it on the shelf early. I'll make a special trip somewhere tomorrow to pick this up. Don't know what to expect from this one.

    I'm a big fan of his after hearing the sprawling masterpiece of To Pimp A Butterfly and the also brilliant Good Kid Mad City. Both of which were concept albums, I wonder if this one will be more straightforward?

    I doubt Walmart is the place you'd want to buy a Kendrick cd though to be fair

    Listening now. The song with U2 is really good. The whole album is good.

    I've been bouncing around on it - I like the feat U2 song as well. I'll need some time to let this album sink in, for certain.

    I may have to get the CD for this one, if there's no vinyl coming.

    Man this album is sinking in now and I am liking it.

    Theories/Rumors are that he will release another album on Easter Sunday!

    His vinyl releases usually come way after the digital versions.

    That was bizarre, wasn't it? Such a great album. I really don't understand why a physical copy wasn't released.

    Same here, just seems like a stupid move. If you didn't get a Record Store Day copy, you were out of luck.

    Kendrick is so far ahead of the competition, it's phenomenal. Like when Michael Jordan would just get that look and take over a game at the end and everyone knew no one else could keep up. Album is fire. Makes me want to street fight a dragon or something.

    I'm amazed I managed to get the vinyl. There are at least a few thousand copies but still.

    were they official or was it bootleg? I've seen boots before of Kanye's Life Of Pablo
