Travis Scott is ready to take his fans to a new world with his highly-anticipated fourth studio album, UTOPIA. The Houston rapper has been teasing the project for months and recently opened up about its concept and inspiration in a recent interview.
In the PIN-UP Magazine interview, in which he also graces the cover, Scott was tasked with giving his personal definition for words using every letter of the alphabet. For the letter “U,” he chose his album title and gave a detailed explanation:
“UTOPIA is something that people feel is so far-fetched and out of reach, some perfect state of mind. But you create it yourself. There are people who achieve UTOPIA every day. They may not be the richest people with the dopest cribs, but it’s a UTOPIA wherever they are, and that’s the most you can have. With every album I live in these worlds in my mind — I’m trying to show people experiences where utopian things can exist, and you can enjoy yourself and have a good time. They can create energy that spews out magical things — new cures, new buildings, new avenues for people to move forward. People need to see that UTOPIA is real.”
Scott also revealed that he made most of his new album on an MPC, a music production device that he said produces a distinctive sound that makes it feel alive. He said his favorite model is the 2000XL.
Though UTOPIA doesn’t have a release date yet, Scott’s longtime collaborator Mike Dean took to his social media to let fans know that he and Travis were still busily working on the project.
“UTOPIA will be done when Trav and I say it’s done. Do not rush. Let us cook,” he wrote.
Scott has been gearing up for his musical comeback since the tragic events at his AstroWorld festival in November 2021, which resulted in 10 deaths and hundreds of injuries. He has faced lawsuits, criticism, and backlash from fans, artists, and media outlets over his role and responsibility in the incident.
