Travis Scott is shooting for the stars on his latest album Astroworld.
Scott announced the album was finally available on Twitter. He posted a picture of him on a wing of a private jet with the album title on the side.

“The title for the album takes its inspiration from Six Flags AstroWorld, which closed up shop in 2005. The amusement park clearly had an effect on Scott during his adolescent years, and he’s made it a point to create his own version of it in musical form. “They tore down AstroWorld to build more apartment space. That’s what it’s going to sound like, like taking an amusement park away from kids,” he told GQ in 2017. “We want it back. We want the building back. That’s why I’m doing it. It took the fun out of the city.”
The album is a follow up to 2016’s Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight.
