After a couple of delays, Atlanta-native Future will release his sophomore effort, Honest on April 22 via Free Bandz which is housed under Epic Records. It is being reported that the album will feature appearances from Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, Pusha T, Pharrell, Nicki Minaj and more. Expect an official tracklist soon.

What are your thoughts on the cover art? Below are some excerpts from a press release via Epic Records:

Honest represents another, more introspective side to the artist. “I Won,” featuring Kanye West, finds Future singing to a girl, “I want to be your trophy,” while “Special” delves into the work and perseverance needed to “go from the ghetto to achieving a high level of success.” “People always put a limit on how far you can actually go,” Future says. “But I know I’m the chosen one who can turn nothing into something.”

Being honest with yourself also means accepting that when you deviate from the norm, not everyone will accept you. Future, for one, has made peace with this idea, choosing to eschew trend-hopping for more timeless tracks. “Nobody’s trying to be special anymore,” says the singer. “Everyone’s just trying to go by the books and go off the trend. Nobody’s trying to set the trend and be different.  They’re just giving you the bare minimum; nobody’s taking over and going over the maximum, giving you their all. And that’s when you get special people; when they go over the limit and their expectations.”

But Honest is only the next rung on an ever-growing ladder. “I still ain’t hit that next level of where I want to be,” admits Future. “I’m always looking for that next big break. I never feel like I’ve achieved that level of success that I want to achieve. It’s a blessing where I’m at, but to be where I really want to be, I have something bigger planned for my life. I can’t feel it but I know I can see it.”
