Blake previously shared the single “Say What You Will” along with the Finneas-starring music video for the track. The album, which Blake described as a concept album, will also feature appearances from SZA, JID, SwaVay, and Monica Martin.
Friends That Break Your Heart, available to preorder now, arrives September 10th and marks Blake’s first full-length album since 2018’s Assume Form; in December 2020, the singer dropped his Covers EP, including his surprise hit rendition of Frank Ocean’s “Godspeed.”
Blake’s tour in support of his new album will kick off September 16th and 17th with a pair of gigs at San Diego’s the Observatory, with the month-long, U.S.-spanning trek concluding October 16th and 17th with two nights at Atlanta’s Tabernacle.
