Pusha-T has finally released the details for his third solo album, Daytona, due out digitally on Friday. The seven-song record was produced by Kanye West, who guests on the track “What Would Meek Do?” Pusha-T reportedly spent more than a year working on the record.
“Daytona represents the fact that I have the luxury of time,” the rapper said in a statement. “That luxury only comes when you have a skill set that your confident in. … Literally, this is nothing more than the outcome of our music-therapy sessions.”
Pusha-T will appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on May 31st before a short tour of what his label describes as “intimate performances of the album,” the dates for which are forthcoming.
In addition to working on Daytona, Pusha-T has been active in the last year appearing on other artists’ releases. He rapped on “Good Goodbye,” a track on Linkin Park’s One More Light last year and collaborated with Gorillaz on “Let Me Out,” a track off their Humanz record. He also assisted former Swedish House Mafia producer Steve Angello on his song “Freedom,” which appeared on his two-track EP Inferno Chapter II.
Earlier this spring, West tweeted that he’d been “chopping samples from the sunken place” for a number of upcoming LPs he was producing, including Pusha-T’s.
