J. Cole's almost-surprise new release 2014 Forest Hills Drive is a stripped-back affair, set to drop on December 9 with no lead singles or videos. Today, he's revealed that it's even more low-key by publishing the tracklist, which shows that Cole hasn't recruited a single feature. Steeped in nostalgia, with the album's title pinning it to a specific place—Cole's childhood home, which he recently purchased—we're expecting a singular, character-defining listen. But we can't know for sure; right now, the only people to have heard the album are a select group of fans that were invited to the actual 2014 Forest Hills Drive this weekend for a cute and cosy listening party on headphones. See photos from the intimate listening session below, pre-order the record here, and find out what Cole's dreams are made of in our backstage interview from earlier this month.
