The Future is here.
Less than a week after being announced, Future’s self-titled fifth studio album arrives with no features and plenty of Hendrix.
“All my energy, I want to put it in my music,” he told Beats 1. “I want you to hear this and say, ‘He gave us all of him.’…You’re gonna be able to hear the completeness of it, the sound, where I’m at, my voice, my tone, my wordplay, everything that’s going on around me, I was able to create off it, to be inspired by so many moments that were happening.”
According to Future, this is also a clear reflection of who he is today. “I want to be able to speak on how I’m living now, more so,” he said. “I want to be authentic to what I am now, true to what I am, to be able to tell you, to get you from where you’re at, to get to where I am now, to this position…It’s like a fresh start.”

Unleashed through Epic Records/A1/Freebandz, the 17-song project allows Future to serve what he’s been cooking since the release of last year’s Purple Reign and EVOL. “I was preparing the feast,” he tweeted. “U walked away from the table too soon.”
Future’s latest release also comes before he heads out on the “Nobody Safe Tour” with Migos, Tory Lanez and Kodak Black. The run begins May 4 in Memphis and runs through June 30 in Las Vegas with Young Thug and A$AP Ferg on select dates.
