Forgot about Dre? Heck no!
Dr. Dre is finally giving fans new music to listen to. The music producer, Apple executive, and N.W.A. rapper announced that his long-awaited follow up to “2001”, his second studio album released in 1999 is finally on its way! The album, appropriately titled “Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre” is his first album in 16th years and will serve as the soundtrack to the upcoming N.W.A. biopic “Straight Outta Compton”.
“I was leaving the set, going to the studio, and I felt myself just being so inspired by the movie that I started recording an album,” Dre said on Saturday during his weekly Beats 1 radio show, “The Pharmacy.” “I kept it under wraps, and now the album is finished. It’s an ‘inspired-by’ album, it’s inspired by Straight Outta Compton,” the new N.W.A. biopic coming out this month. The album will be exclusive to iTunes and Apple Music.
Dre’s announcement also marks the official death of Dre’s long-in-the-works album, “Detox”, which was originally planned for a 2011 release. Slated for a release on August 7th (Friday), the full track list for “Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre” can be seen below.
