Currently slated for release in October, Drake’s second album Take Care is gradually taking shape. Tentatively revealing information, Drake’s Twitter feed is a litany of clues, including the recent tweet “Headlines.”, which will apparently be the title of the first official single released from the upcoming record.

Despite telling Rolling Stone recently “I hate singles”, Drake will be releasing “Headlines” and further singles – although he has also been keen to allow his fans to access his album through several leaked online songs, and even a video for the track Marvin’s Room.

The Rolling Stone article contains further information on the record, claiming that track names will include Shot for Me, Free Spirit and The Real Her. Aside from confirmed features from Rick Ross and Lil’ Wayne, Drake is also reportedly still hoping to collaborate with The Weeknd, Jamie XX, Florence Welch and DJ Premier, any of which would be incredible to hear.

Young Money Entertainment and Cash Money Records will release ‘Take Care’ on 24th October.
