Kendrick Lamar’s new album, the emphatically titled DAMN., has officially arrived. Subscribers of Apple Music and Spotify can stream it in full down below.
The 14-track effort follows To Pimp A Butterfly, crowned the best LP of 2015, and last year’s untitled unmastered. Though DAMN. doesn’t feature a ton of guests like previous records, it does boast contributions from Rihanna, and rather curiously, U2. Also included is Los Angeles-based musician Zacari, a Top Dawg Entertainment affiliate who’s collaborated with Ab-Soul and Isaiah Rashad.
As for production, James Blake, Greg Kurstin, Kaytranada, BadBadNotGood, The Alchemist, and The Internet’s Steve Lacy have credits, as do frequent collaborators Sounwave, DJ Dahi, and Terrace Martin. Anna Wise, known for her contributions to good kid, m.A.A.d city and TPAB, appears, too. Additionally, Atlanta mega producer Mike WiLL Made It — who recently put out a mixtape featuring K. Dot — lent a hand to a number of tracks, including chart-topping masterpiece “HUMBLE.”
Like the album itself, all songs have capitalized one-word titles, such as “BLOOD.”, “DNA.”, “PRIDE.”, “LOVE.”, and “GOD.” The 13th and final track is dubbed “DUCKWORTH.”, Lamar’s real-life last name.
