It's been a long time coming, but we finally know when we'll be hearing Chance The Rapper's official debut album. Chance sat down with Jimmy Kimmel and decided to drop some details about the highly anticipated record, which is a follow-up to 2016's Coloring Book mixtape.
The album, titled The Big Day. will drop just after he's here to headline Splendour In The Grass, with the release date set for July 26th. That's in just over a week, aka VERY, VERY SOON. The lead single is expected to be the already-released GRoCERIES, featuring TisaKorean and Murda Beatz.
He's also revealed the artwork for the album, which you can check out below. It's the first artwork for a Chance project that doesn't feature his face.

July 26th is set to be a huge day for hip-hop, with Rich Brian and YBN Cordae also both releasing records on that day.

In case you missed it, it's already been a huge week for Chance.
Earlier in the week, a runaway Chicago alligator was named after the rapper, with the alligator receiving the nickname 'Chance The Snapper'.

Luckily, the alligator was captured safe and sound, which presumably gave Chance the go-ahead to finally announce the album.
With the album finally being announced, there's a chance Chance drops some unreleased music from the album during his headlining set at Splendour, which would be a huge treat for Australian fans. We're keeping our fingers and toes crossed.
