Metro Boomin’s ‘Heroes & Villains’: Everything To Know, Including The Release Date, Tracklist, And Artwork

11/30/22 Update: Today, Metro Boomin looked to share the tracklist to Heroes & Villains, but he went about it in a different way. Metro tweeted a link that led users to a page with 15 golden bars. He told his followers that posting tweets with “#HeroesandVillians” would lead to each bar being burned and unveiling a song title from the album. Sure enough, fans got to using the hashtag, and in the end, fifteen tracks with features from John Legend, Future, Chris Brown, Don Toliver, Travis Scott, 21 Savage, Young Nudy, Young Thug, The Weeknd, Mustafa, ASAP Rocky, Takeoff, and Gunna on the album.

11/29/22 Update: Metro Boomin released a Heroes & Villains short film to accompany the upcoming album.

The short film announcement comes after Metro unveiled the artwork for Heroes & Villains, both of which you can view below.

11/23/22 Original Article:

Nearly four years after his chart-topping debut with 2018’s Not All Heroes Wear Capes, Metro Boomin returns to music with his highly anticipated sophomore effort, Heroes & Villains.

Despite rumors that the prolific producer pushed the album back because of Drake and 21 Savage’s Her Loss, which was released earlier this month, he revealed that the album would be delayed because he couldn’t get the samples cleared in time. The album was initially set to release on November 4, but it has been pushed back to December.

“I couldn’t get all the samples on my album cleared in time for next week, so I’m dropping on December 2 now, so I have enough time to make sure you all get this masterpiece as intended,” he tweeted. “I promise it’s worth the wait!! P.S. I would NEVER move my album date because of anyone else [laughing emoji].”

This past September, the “Runnin” producer announced that he would drop his forthcoming project and shared a trailer about the upcoming project on YouTube.

Yesterday (November 22), Metro shared the cover for his forthcoming project on Twitter. To date, no tracklist or features have been released for the long-awaited project, but it’s fair to assume they will be coming quickly.

Heroes & Villains is out 12/2 via Boominati Worldwide/Republic. Pre-order it here.
