Drake and Future have unveiled their kind-of-expected 11-track mixtape What a Time To Be Alive (yes, as in the Simpsons quote when Jasper is looking at Moon Pies). The release premiered on Drake's OVO Sound show on Apple's Beats 1 radio last night, and is now available exclusively on iTunes and Apple Music. According to Drake, the songs were recorded with Future over the space of just six days.
"It's a little soundtrack for people that need it right now."
"It's a little soundtrack for people that need it right now," Drake said of the album, reports Rolling Stone. "I went to Atlanta for six days a couple weeks ago with the hopes of doing some songs with Future, and when you get around Future, it's like a vortex, that guy can outwork anybody right now [...] It's tough to see someone do four, five songs in one night and not try to match it."
Drake uploaded the album's cover art to Instagram on Friday, following this up on Sunday with a full track list and a handful of celebratory memes and pictures. We're just disappointed Jasper hasn't made an appearance yet.
