    We've been patiently waiting for news about Kendrick Lamar's new album for a while now, and we're glad to announce the wait is finally over. His new album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, will be out in a matter of weeks (May 13th, to be exact). 

    Replying to a tweet on Twitter, which stated that "Kendrick Lamar is officially retired", he linked to oklama.com, which features two folders on the front page. There's a yellow folder that features his thoughts on his new album from August last year, as well as a recently-uploaded black folder, which contains a press release. 

    The press release, which comes from Kendrick's company pgLang (which he started alongside business partner Dave Free in 2020), simply states the album title and date, as well as the sentence "all factual information for this release will come directly from this source only". At the bottom of the release is the phrase "appreciate your patience", which is fair. However, good things do come to those who wait. 

    While we've heard more from Kendrick in recent months, having featured on his cousin Baby Keem's 2021 album The Melodic Blue, while he also recently performed at the Super Bowl, it's been a long wait for fans. However, in a matter of weeks, we'll be listening to a new Kendrick Lamar album, and we're looking forward to hearing his thoughts on the events of the last few years.

    It turns out that you never know who may be reading your tweets when you're asking them for new music, especially if you're announcing their retirement prematurely.  Welcome back, Kendrick. We've missed you.
