Surprise! Just as suspected, J. Cole has a new album and its out this Friday (April 20). Just hours after he abruptly announced a free show in New York City where phones and cameras were prohibited, Cole took to Twitter to announce the release date for his new album, KOD.

The last album from the rapper was 2016's 4 Your Eyez Only, which was paired with a HBO documentary and sold-out tour. Just last week, Cole appeared in an ESPN NBA Playoff commercial, which featured a new verse from the rapper.
