The hype continues. In case you've been living under a rock (or were put into a coma by Yeezus), you know that Jay-Z's new album Magna Carta is coming. The Holy Grail album is set to be out on July 4th via a Roc Nation's Samsung Galaxy App. And what better way is there to celebrate American independence, really?
The latest in a series of media events to promote the album was a scavenger hunt, held yesterday by Roc Nation. The prize at the end was a YouTube video of the songbook for Magna Carta. The video shows each page of a lyric book with the track titles on the top and lyrics blacked out underneath. The result? A full track list for the expected album.
So, now, without further ado, we can present to you the official track list for Magna Carta. Check out the track list and scavenger hunt video below.
Magna Carta Holy Grail:
01 Picasso Baby
04 Tom Ford
05 Beach Is Better
09 Part II (On the Run)
11 La Familia
12 Jay-Z Blue
13 Nickles & Dimes
According to Pitchfork the album will feature Pharrell, Timbaland, Swizz Beatz, and Rick Rubin, and one of the tracks listed above supposedly features lyrics from Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit." With two tracks referencing baby Blue, it is possible that one song will feature the little one as well, but we'll have to wait and see.
The last two track titles are blacked out, but they look like they are "Holy Grail" and "Open Letter." "Open Letter" was released in April, so we can pretty safely say that it is the last song on the track list, but take a look for yourself.
Download the Roc Nation app here and take a listen to "Open Letter" while you wait for the big day.
