Lil Durk has enlisted Metro Boomin, Alicia Keys, and some other big names behind the boards for his new album, Almost Healed.

The list of producers that have worked on Smurk’s forthcoming album, which is set to released on May 26, was revealed in a visual uploaded on Instagram by Spotify’s RapCaviar on Saturday (May 20).

The 21-song album boasts production from Metro Boomin, Alicia Keys, Southside, Wheezy, Zaytoven, ATL Jacob and CuBeatz, among others.

The producer of the recent hit song “All My Life” by Durk, featuring J. Cole, has a number of credits as well.

Since the release of 7220 in 2022, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with more than 120,000 first-week sales, Lil Durk’s project Almost Healed will be his first since then.

The OTF frontman shared the cover art, release date, and new title for Almost Healed after first saying it would be called The Voice 2.0.

In an interview with XXL last month before he decided to change the title, Lil Durk explained that the 2.0 represented the progression he’s made since his last album.

“Growth, that’s what the 2.0 stand for,” he said. “Just be on another level. Just not only music-wise, like the things around me like I told you, growing from the friends around me, management. Sitting with the mayor. We doin’ big charity things. Neighborhood Heroes, the foundation I got.”

The original release date for Almost Healed was May 12, the same day as his  rival NBA YoungBoy’sRichest Opp. However, a sales showdown between the warring rap stars was avoided after Durk pushed his album back at the last minute.
