This weekend, the 50-year-old announced on Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio that he would be debuting Compton: A Soundtrack By Dr. Dre on Friday, August 7!

The Beats By Dre creator explained that the inspiration for his return to the recording studio was the premiere of Straight Outta Compton — the upcoming film that tells of the rapper’s rise to fame through his rap group N.W.A.!

Dre is portrayed in the film by Corey Hawkins, and also served as producer of the biopic. He said this about his upcoming album:

“I felt myself being so inspired by the movie that I started to record an album. It’s going to be my grand finale. The record is bananas.”
