The new material comes after a slight bit of confusion on whether Chance would be releasing something this week. In an interview with the Chicago Tribune, Chance was quoted as saying a new project was "going to come out just in time for the Special Olympics," which takes place Saturday, July 21 at Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island in Chicago.
The following day, Chance told fans he would not be releasing a project, but assured them he was working in the studio. "Sorry no album this week, def been in the stu tho," he tweeted.
Chance was recently a guest on Open Late With Peter Rosenberg, where he unveiled plans to collaborate with Kanye West on a seven-song album. "I've been actively working on the project with Childish, I'm gonna do a seven-track with 'Ye," he said at the time. And that Childish Gambino collaborative project? “We got six songs that are all fire,” he explained. “But I think the album's gonna be more than 14 songs. I think it's gonna be a full thing.”
