Kendrick Lamar has revealed the first track from his new album ‘Mr Morale & The Big Steppers’, ahead of that record’s release later this week. That track is titled ‘The Heart Part 5’.

The video for the track – directed by Lamar and longtime collaborator Dave Free – uses deepfake technology to morph Lamar into Kanye West, Will Smith, Kobe Bryant, OJ Simpson, Jussie Smollett and Nipsey Hussle.

Set for release on Friday, the album will be Lamar’s last for Top Dawg Entertainment, and is a co-release with his own label PGLang. His first album since ‘Damn’ in 2017, it was announced last month.
