The Grammy Award–winning lyricist Lecrae is having a stellar 2017 after the success of his Billboard chart-topping hit “Blessings,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign. Now, he's finally declared his long-awaited album, All Things Work Together, will be released this September. He will begin touring shortly thereafter, in October.

Lecrae’s major label debut is set to be the Houston native’s biggest album thus far. While the official track list is yet to be unveiled, his record for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, “I’ll Find You” with Tori Kelly, “Blessings," and the Metro Boomin–produced “Hammer Time” with 1K Phew are included on All Things Work Together.

“This is my favorite album and the most work I've put in since the Anomaly tour,” he says. “This is a spiritual and emotional musical journey. People will be blown away.”

The album was originally announced in December 2016, but after a few delays, the Houston native has finally chosen September to bless us.

The All Things Work Together tour kicks off Oct. 4 in Memphis and will wrap up in Chicago on Dec. 5. The “Church Clothes” rapper also will be performing in major cities across the country, including New York City, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Charlotte, N.C., and Los Angeles.

Taylor's new project is a followup to her 2018 debut studio album, K.T.S.E. (Keep That Same Energy).  In an Instagram Live interview with Red Bull promoting her documentary, Assembly Required: Teyana Taylor’s House of Petunia, Taylor announced that The Album is officially done.

“Y’all gonna be so happy,” she said last month. “This album is definitely more of a vibe. I don’t really do fast songs like that. There are some head-boppers. It’s not super-fast. You can dance and you can cry and you can ride.”

The Album is scheduled to debut next month.

Check out the “Bare Wit Me” teaser below.
