Chance the Rapper will release his newest project, the follow-up to 2016's Coloring Book, this week, the Chicago Tribune reports. The release will coincide with Chano's headlining appearance at the Special Olympics anniversary concert, which takes place on Northerly Island in Chicago on the 21st.

“I got that feeling when people do something that has a new feel to it,” Chance told the paper. “I’m excited for everybody to get that. It’s going to come out just in time for the Special Olympics.” The project will be separate from the seven-track record he's currently working on with Kanye West, which he also discussed in the interview. "We’ve just started making it, but I don’t want to manipulate the situation and impose any time frame, because that can hinder you.”

The Fader has reached out to Chance's camp for further comment.
