Travis Scott teases new music at first headline show after Astroworld

Travis Scott performed at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday night.

The night marked the rapper’s first headlining show since last year’s tragedy at his music festival Astroworld, during which a surge in concert-goers killed 10 and injured many more.

Scott went through his usual setlist of popular hits, but gave English audiences a taste of unreleased music, beginning with a performance of “God’s Country”. The sparkling song originally appeared on an early track listing for Kanye West’s 2021 album Donda.

In addition to “God’s Country,” Scott performed “Lost Forever,” an unreleased track featuring Westside Gunn and James Blake. Scott debuted the track briefly at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards back in May.

The two songs are likely to appear on Scott’s forthcoming and long-delayed fourth studio album, Utopia – the follow-up to 2018’s Astroworld and the following year’s Jackboys compilation. So far, Utopia is said to include features by 21 Savage, Swae Lee and Bryson Tiller. It will likely also feature the 2020 track “Franchise” featuring Young Thug and MIA

Fans and critics alike have begun to speculate whether the theme material for “Utopia” will in any way mention or honor the lives lost during Astroworld. Scott has kept a relatively low profile in the months following the tragedy, but he has slowly found his way back into the public eye.

The rapper recently announced that he would be hosting a “Road to Utopia” residency at Zouk nightclub in Las Vegas between September 17th and October 15th for a series of seven shows. It also appears some of Scott’s previously scrapped sponsorships – including his “Cactus Jack” brand with Dior has also been reinstated.
