With Travis Scott‘s highly-anticipated Astroworld set to release tomorrow, the creatives over at Genius have put together a short video clip highlighting the importance of the now defunct theme park and what it means to Scott.
The title of the forthcoming album was announced well before Scott even released Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight back in 2016. In an interview with GQ, Scott stated how the torn down amusement park inspired the sound of the project, hence the name Astroworld. He said:
“The next record is called AstroWorld. It might be the best music that I made. I have two records on the album that are like, man, they are the best. 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. We want it back. We want the building back. That’s why I’m doing it. It took the fun out of the city.”
Set to feature the likes of Sheck Wes, Kanye West and Lil Uzi Vert make sure to head back here for Astroworld‘s official release. For more info, head over to Genius.
