For all the J. Cole fans out there (us included), we have some good news. The Grammy nominated rapper announced the upcoming release of his new album 4 Your Eyez Only, which will be released on December 9th. In true Cole fashion, the album was announced due to it becoming available for pre-order on iTunes, but not promoted in any other capacity such as Cole’s social media platform.

The announcement came as a surprise to many as Cole alluded to the possibility of him taking a break for awhile during a show in October, where he said he wouldn’t be performing for a long time. Perhaps he had a change of heart? Whatever the case is, we are definitely here for Cole’s return to music and can’t wait to hear the album. Besides announcing his upcoming album, Cole also shared a documentary, named Eyez which gives a behind-the-scenes look into making 4 Your Eyez. The documentary can be viewed on Tidal and you don’t have to subscribe to Tidal to watch it. Check out the videos for two singles off the album, “Everybody Dies” and False Prophets (Be Like This), also released this week, below.
