While the official release date and tracklist remain under wraps, fans are speculating that the unreleased track with Bad Bunny will feature on “Utopia”. Scott himself has been cryptic about the album’s details, but he has shared that the project is “on the way” and has been “finished and mastered”. He’s even played it for the Houston Astros in their locker room, hinting at the album’s imminent release.
The album, which has been in the works since 2020, is expected to be a departure from Scott’s previous sound. In an interview with WWD, Scott described the new album mode as “psychedelic rock”. He also revealed in an interview with I-D Magazine that he’s been working with new people to expand the sound, even making beats and rapping on his own tracks.
The meaning behind “Utopia” is also intriguing. Scott explained that the album is about a utopian state, focusing on communication and the absence of hate. He believes that the current dystopian state is due to miscommunication and non-understandable communication.
The album is expected to drop in June 2023, according to Sylvia Rhone, the CEO of Epic Records. As for the tracklist, while it’s not officially out yet, Genius has put together a list of songs that may appear on the project, including “HEARTBEAT”, “Cinderella” by Metro Boomin & Future featuring Travis Scott, “Down in Atlanta” featuring Pharrell, and “GOD’S COUNTRY”, among others.
As the release date approaches, fans are eagerly awaiting more details and hoping for no leaks, which have been rumored on social media. Regardless, the anticipation for “Utopia” continues to build, promising a new chapter in Travis Scott’s musical journey.
