As we get closer to the date, look out for a single or any new teases from J. Cole prior to the Friday release.

Cole surprised fans on Monday in NY when he said that his new album will be released on Friday, April 20.

Prior to the announcement, Cole had posted an invite for a show at NYC's Gramercy Theatre, believed to be the album's listening party as he instructed, "No phones".

Of course, fans were delighted that their detective skills were on point yesterday, when they pointed out that something fishy was going on with Cole's social media accounts after he switched his Twitter profile pic, background, and Instagram avatar.

It's tough to tell if Smokepurpp is just trolling fans here, considering Cole never puts features on his albums, or if he's telling the truth, but you can check it out for yourself (below). KOD according to Brian "B.Dot" Miller means Kidz On Drugz, King Overdose and Kill Our Demonz. Also, the last track, "1985" is apparently an introduction to another project, which Cole unsurprisingly remained tight-lipped about.

His last album was 2016's 4 Your Eyes Only, which was accompanied by an HBO documentary.
