Drake Announces Release Date Of New Album, Nothing Was The Same

Toronto rapper Drake has revealed the release date of his upcoming album, Nothing Was The Same, with the head of October's Very Own entertainment updating the newly launched OVO website's front page with the date September 17 scrawled across the page in capital letters and the album's title sat beneath it. The album will be Drake's third release to date, the follow-up to 2011's Take Care and 2009's Thank Me Later.

The website was updated late Friday (June 21) evening and comes only days after the rapper announced plans for an extensive tour of North America with R&B singer Miguel, with rapper Future showing up at certain gigs. And what a treat the announcement must be to some hip hop fans, with this, Yeezus and Magna Carta Holy Grail completing the holy trinity of commercial rap releases in one year.

We've already heard some snippets from the album already and things are sounding promising. The website also included four new songs from the OVO-sphere all available for free download on the OVO SoundCloud, although the page doesn't specify which ones, if any, will make it on to the release. 'The Motion' sounds like a grower, and 'Migos' by Versace and Drake sounds as though it could get a party started, so things are already looking good for the new album. And hey, maybe after this album he'll finally be able to get into the Heat's dressing room.

Nothing Was The Same will officially be released on September 17 2013.
