Drake's third solo studio album, Nothing Was the Same, will reach shelves Sept. 17. The Canadian entertainer revealed this via Twitter early Saturday morning, and he followed up his tweet with a post on his website, which featured four new songs.

Two of the songs are his—"The Motion," featuring Sampha, and "Jodeci Freestyle," featuring J.Cole. It's unclear whether either or both will be featured on Nothing Was the Same. The other two are tracks on which Drake is featured—Migos's "Versace" and PartyNextDoor's "Over Here."

During a recent interview with GQ, the Young Money star discussed other songs on Nothing Was the Same (specifically "Tuscan Leather," which will feature a Whitney Houston sample) and his inspiration for the album (Marvin Gaye's 1978 double album, Here, My Dear). He said, "This is my moment to say if I wanted to rap all the time, really rap, I would, but I also love to make music. I'll do this for you right now. But it's for me, too. It's my story. I'm trying to get back to that kid in the basement. To say what he has to say. And I'm trying to make it last."

Shortly after the album is released, Drizzy plans to embark on an extensive tour. Dubbed "Would You Like a Tour?" it will take the "Started From the Bottom" rapper, Future, and singer Miguel on a 40-date trek across North America. Check out the dates and venues below.
