Scott’s album has 19 tracks on it, according to The Associated Press. It’s his first album in about five years.

Scott’s “Utopia” album is the “highly anticipated follow-up” to “Astroworld,” which was released in 2018, Rolling Stone reported. It is also his first album since 10 people died at a 2021 Astroworld Music festival in Houston that he was headlining, the AP reported. A crowd crush resulted in the fatalities and several hundred were injured, according to CNN.

Scott’s latest album features appearances from Beyoncé, SZA, James Black, Drake, the Weeknd, Bon Iver, and more, according to Rolling Stone.

The album was previously going to be celebrated with a live-streamed concert at the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt but it was canceled due to “complex production issues,” Live Nation said in a statement obtained by the AP. But he did host a one-night-only release of his film, “Circus Maximus” at select movie theaters Thursday evening.

On Nov. 5, 2021, nearly 50,000 people attending the Astroworld concert at NRG Park surged toward the stage after 9 p.m. as the headliner, Scott, began performing, the Houston Chronicle reported. It got dangerous as the crowd squished together leading to hundreds unable to move or breathe. The crush of people overwhelmed security forces, according to the newspaper.
