Metro Boomin is preparing for the debut of his long-awaited sophomore LP Heroes & Villains. After delaying the project’s release last month due to sample clearance roadblocks, the hip-hop producer returned to tease a collaboration with Travis Scott and is showing off the cover art for the record, which will drop on December 2.
The album cover features Metro wearing a suit and shaking the hand of his twin, who is engulfed in flames. The cover seemingly references Pink Floyd’s 1975 LPWish You Were Herewhich similarly showcases a man shaking the hand of his blazing twin.
Alongside revealing the Heroes & Villains cover, Metro also teased that the project would be a double-disc album on social media, writing that it “must be 2 sides.” Typically that means that there are too many songs to pack into just one LP, so listeners will likely be treated to a span of new tracks.
Fans have been waiting for Metro’s solo comeback for a few years now. Heroes & Villains will follow 2018’s Not All Heroes Wear Capeshis first full-length solo album.
