Kendrick Lamar’s New Album Is Out April 14, Features U2 Production Credit
Once again, Kendrick Lamar is about to take over. His new album — for now, titled ALBUM. — is now available for pre-order on iTunes. With that comes some scant, though crucial details on what to expect.
While Kendrick warned on “The Heart Part 4” that “y’all got until April 7 to get your shit together,” iTunes says his new music will arrive one week later, on April 14.

Other featured producers include Mike WiLL Made It (“Humble”), 9th Wonder, The Alchemist, DJ Dahi and BADBADNOTGOOD.
