Drake’s new album For All the Dogs was supposed to hit the shelves next week, but we’ll have to wait for it a little bit longer. The Canadian rapper pushed back the release of his eighth studio album for October because he’ll need more time to finish it up.

For All the Dogs was supposed to hit the shelves on September 22, but it’ll now be released on October 6. Drake decided to delay its release once again to focus on wrapping up his ongoing It’s All a Blur Tour with 21 Savage, which will conclude on October 9.

“Okay, my dilemma I am faced with is I either cancel shows to finish the album or I complete the mission and drop the album before the last show. I owe you all these memories we are building and anywhere we have missed to date we will be spinning back for sure,” wrote Drake on social media.

The release of For All the Dogs has been delayed several times after Drake shared its cover art, drawn by his son Adonis, back in August. “Search & Rescue” was released as its lead single back in April, while Drake dropped the second single “Slime You Out” ft. SZA just this Friday.
