    ASAP Rocky has revealed details of his next studio album. The follow-up to LongLiveASAP is titled At.Long.Last.ASAP, and features contributions from Lykke Li, FKA twigs, and Clams Casino.

    The new album was executive produced by Danger Mouse and recorded in both London and Los Angeles.

    In an interview with GQ, Rocky explained the album’s title: “I’m claiming ownership of my legacy. Look at it: At.Long.Last.ASAP. A-L-L-A. Like slang for ‘Allah.’ It’s the return of the god MC. I’m named after Rakim, and I’m finally facing what it means: I was born to do this shit. And I hope I get to do it for a very long time.”

    In a separate interview with Billboard, the Harlem MC discussed the diversity of the album: “People really don’t know the other side of me. The deeper side, the more musical side, the more intellectual side. When I first came on the scene it was more of this trendy, bourgeois, pizazz attitude. That’s still me but at the end of the day I think that kind of overshadowed the whole purpose of me doing what I do. I’m an incredibly diverse artist, I’m a universal artist. At least that’s how I see it.” As such, the album will feature “psychedelic ’60s London and introspection,” Rocky singing, and acoustic guitar, according to GQ.

    A release date has not yet been announced, but Rock confirmed the album is finished and will arrive “soon.”

    Below, listen to Rocky’s latest single “Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2”.
