SZA‘s highly-anticipated album S.O.S. has officially received a release date.

The TDE artist confirmed that her sophomore effort is scheduled to drop December 9 and shared an accompanying visual to “Blind,” a track that she debuted during her Saturday Night Live performance over the weekend. SZA’s previous singles like “Shirt” and “Good Days” are expected to be part of the upcoming album, but a tracklist and list of guest features are yet to be revealed.

S.O.S. is the followup to 2017’s Ctrl and has been described by Billboard as “the most captivating music she has ever made, her beloved lo-fi beats sharing space with surf rock within the same track, a grunge record and an acoustic guitar-driven ballad coexisting without either sounding out of place.” SZA also opened up about the stress she feels with all the red tape as the release date of the album draws nearer, “I hate the red tape analytics of dropping anything — it’s so stressful.” She continued, “I definitely have heard [the term ‘digital service provider’] more this week and last week than I have ever. I don’t like the way it sounds — it sounds stressful and like something that requires a lot of attention and maneuvering. I hate the word ‘single.’ It’s like, ‘What the f–k separates a single from other sh-t on my album that I like? Why does it have to be different?’

SZA’s S.O.S. drops December 9.

Elsewhere in music, Metro Boomin, A$AP Rocky and RM lead the week’s Best New Tracks.
