so excited about the prospect of a new album before the festival!

As for the older songs, would love to get Wesley's Theory, These Walls, and a few of the tracks from untitled unmastered, especially "Blue Faces"/untitled 08 (probably not gonna happen though...)

What is everyone's wish-list songs? 

For me I would love to see Sing About Me, Wesley's Theory, Untitled 03, Element & XXX. I doubt he'd play them, but just one would make my night. Also would love a freestyle. 

Actually if he played Cartoons and Cereal I think I'd cry.

I reckon Wesley's Theory isn't out the question. Might just be an interlude though.

Swimming Pools — in full and not part of a medley — is always the one for me. Lump in untitled 07 as well as all the big hitters and I'm a happy man.

Just the Vegas set. All of it.

Untitled 07... God I still can't get over the creative zone Kendrick was in during TPAB... to drop an album full of cuts that didn't make the main album and it's still gold

Think that's a mirror match with me. Don't think he played I on his last tour either which I'd rate

Untitled 03 would be incredible live. He performed it on the final Colbert Report. Can only find the audio. Even better than the album version.

Does anybody know if there is a high quality video of his Day N Vegas set? Absolute god-tier performance but every video I've found is horrendous sound-quality wise!

Ah scrap that, found one! Just needed a diff pair of headphones and to get past the initial opening where the bass sounds crazy distorted

it's already been 5 years since "DAMN."'s release 😵

we need the new flows we've been promised ASAP Kendrick!

Goddmanit I thought this thread had been resurrected because something had been announced 😅

Hard agree. The closer the festival gets the more I’m wondering if we’re actually getting something before it. Would be strange not to, and Kendrick very much seems like the kind of artist who’s gonna drop new music out of nowhere so it really could come at any time, but considering how few festivals he’s doing this year it could easily be a short run of playing the hits before the new album festival shows come next year. I hope not though. I really want new shit, and it’d feel like a touch of a wasted opportunity if his Glastonbury set was just a bit of a throwaway ‘hits’ set.

I'd say there's every chance he drops a new single ahead of the summer shows, but late last year, he began touring a setlist that was essentially a victory lap of his career so far, going through his albums one at a time and playing a selection of "the hits" as well as some deeper cuts from each, which I think would be an incredible set for a Glasto headliner slot - a chance to cap off things so far, before launching into whatever comes next.

Wasn't DAMN released pretty quickly after being announced?

The Italian press release for his show over there said he'd be playing new stuff, so there's obviously an intention to have material out by late June. Ten weeks is still plenty of time to get at least a couple of singles out.

yeah the whole rollout took 2 or 3 weeks, so there's still some hope left
