During his performance Tuesday night at the Ford Amphitheatre in Coney Island, NYC, Travis Scott announced that his highly anticipated upcoming album, Birds In The Trap Sing Mcknight, will in fact be arriving on August 5th (August 5th… August 5th… August 5th).

Within the last month, fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of the follow up to Scott’s debut album Rodeo which dropped almost one year ago. Until now, it’s been confusing on where the project stands, and after implying the imminent arrival of the project several times on social media, fans began wondering if the album would drop at all.
On July 18th, Travis Scott confirmed via phone interview with Shade 45’s Hollywood Shuffle, that he has officially inked a brand new deal with Apple Music. This is not only incredible news for La Flame fans, as Scott finds himself the newest signee among an already star-studded Apple Music line-up, but also gives a logical reason for the delay in releasing Birds In The Trap Sing Mcknight. This is big step for Scott in continuing to establish his influential role in Hip-Hop, and should prove to be an excellent decision on his part. In addition to confirming his new Apple deal, Scott also revealed that he’s working on a short film to accompany the album, another possible reason for the delay.
With only one single from the project currently available for download, Scott treated fans to a preview of an upcoming record off the album which you can check out below. As of right now, the only officially released single off the upcoming album is “Pick Up The Phone” featuring Young Thug and Quavo, of Migos (listen below).

As we wait for Birds In The Trap Sing Mcknight to drop August 5th, fans can also look forward to an appearance from Scott on Major Lazer’s upcoming 2017 album, confirmed by Diplo in a recent phone interview with Zane Lowe. Whether or not, Scott’s upcoming album will surpass his previous debut album, Rodeo, remains to be seen, however any new material from Travis Scott is certainly a reason to rejoice.
