Drake releases new album ‘For All The Dogs’ with cover art by his five-year-old son

The new album features 23 songs, including new single '8AM in Charlotte'


Drake has released his eighth studio album For All The Dogs after months of anticipation.

The Jewish Canadian rapper revealed the track list this morning, and that the artwork on the album's cover was created by his five-year-old son Adonis.

Among the 23 tracks is new single "8AM in Charlotte", which the rapper shared a video of on social media.

The video, posted on X/Twitter opens with Adonis showcasing a piece of his artwork. Part of the drawing includes a goat with “Daddy” written alongside it. This was used on the album cover.

The rapper asks if the goat is him and Adonis replies: “It’s Daddy Goat.”

“That makes perfect sense to me,” Drake says.

The Grammy winner announced in June his plans for a new album while promoting his debut poetry book Titles Ruin Everything.

The 168-page collection of poems centre on themes of fame, romance, and relationships.

Writing on Instagram at the time, he said: “I made an album to go with the book. They say they miss the old Drake girl don’t tempt me. FOR ALL THE DOGS.”

For All The Dogs was originally set to be released on September 22, but the rapper announced he was pushing it back to focus on his tour which ends in Toronto next week.

He told fans: “Okay my dilemma I am faced with is 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. For All the Dogs October 6th. It’s only right.”

Earlier this week the artist surprised a fan at a concert in Miami by promising to give him $50,000 (£41,000).

He made the impulsive offer after spotting an audience member holding a sign that suggested he had been left by his girlfriend for whom he had bought a ticket before the show.
