See what Chance has to share about the process of making his new album.

It's been 4 years since Chance The Rapper's last album, 2019's The Big Day. In the meantime, Chance has dropped some music of his own and appeared on some other artist's songs. But what fans have really been waiting for is a new album and while Chance not much is known about the project besides its name fans just got another update. The album, titled Star Line Gallery doesn't have a release date yet but Chance is already building anticipation.

In an interview with Audacy, Chance described the album as "one of my proudest projects in terms of writing and artistic vision." Chance was also sure to temper the expectations of fans dying to know when they can hear the record. “There’s an immense amount of work to be done with it." Finally, Chance spoke on how much he enjoys showing off the process of writing the album through his art pieces. "I feel like with the love and intentionality that goes into making each physical art piece gives me an opportunity to show people in these museum spaces what I’m working on as I go, the highs and the lows, kind of like a preview to the project."

This year is the 10th anniversary of Chance's breakout album Acid Rap and he's playing shows to celebrate. Fans were also involved when he asked them what songs they wanted to hear during the Acid Rap shows. He also got plenty of laughs during a late-night TV appearance where he discussed his kid's TV habits. The most viral moment came when Chance said he wanted to collaborate with Peppa Pig.

While Chance has been pretty quiet musically in 2023 so far, last year he released a number of singles. Which ones may eventually end up on Star Line Gallery or when the album will actually drop is still unclear. Let us know if you're excited about a new Chance album in the comments below.
