A couple weeks ago, sneaker-master and new G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha T previewed his sophomore studio album, King PushNow he tells Noisey he’ll actually release a lead-up record, Darkest Before Dawn, on Dec. 18. King Push will follow in the spring. Here’s the word:

"I’ve been recording so much—I didn’t want to break up that body of work. I feel like I had the producers doing things that they weren’t usually known for, a little out of their wheelhouse. I wanted to give the fans that body of work. That’s the music I love, and that’s the music that my fans love from me. Instead of having those moments throughout King Push, let’s just separate the game."

King Push and Darkest Before Dawn producers include Kanye West, Boi-1da, Diddy and Q-Tip. Pusha’s new track, “Untouchable,” samples the Notorious B.I.G. over a Timbaland beat.

In the latest episode of Fuse's Sole Searching, Pusha walked us through his experience of making his new EQT Guidance '93 show.
