Dr. Dre Announces New Album “Compton: The Soundtrack”

It was announced today that legendary producer Dr. Dre will finally release a new album. It won't be Detox, the oft-rumored record that's been expected since at least 2004. Instead, Dre will release Compton: The Soundtrack on August 7th-- one week before the release of the N.W.A. movie.

Rolling Stone reports that

"During principal photography, I felt myself going to the studio and being so inspired by the movie that I started recording an album," Dre said on The Pharmacy. "I kept it under wraps, and now the album is finished. It's bananas. It's an 'inspired by' album. It's inspired by Straight Outta Compton, we're gonna call the album Compton: The Soundtrack. I'm really proud of this."

The track list contains some interesting details and collaborators, principally among them for L.A. music fans the name Anderson Paak. The talented Paak has been making waves in the underground and for Stones Throw Records for a a few years, and is credited on four of the album's 14 cuts.
