A$AP Ferg has confirmed the release date of his new album Always Strive and Prosper. The rapper and member of A$AP Mob — which also includes A$AP Rocky — took to Twitter Tuesday to post the news that the album, the follow-up to 2013’s Trap Lord, will be available April 22 and that fans can pre-order it beginning March 25. He also shared a snippet of the Schoolboy Q-featuring “Let It Bang.”

Ferg shared Always Strive and Prosper‘s artwork Monday and has recently posted songs from the album including “New Level” with Future and “Trap Anthem” with Migos.

In a recent interview with Stereogum, Ferg said the new album could be some of his most personal work yet. “I’m working backwards a little bit because A$AP blew up so fast, and ‘Work’ came, ‘Shabba’ came, and blew up so fast that [fans] didn’t really get a chance to get an inside look into my life,” he said. “So now it’s like I’m schooling all my fans and letting them know who I am. I’m giving them the lineage.”
