NEW YORK, July 15 (UPI) -- Drake's new album will be titled Views from the 6.

The 27-year-old rapper announced the title Tuesday morning. The album will be his fourth studio release, and is preceded by Thank Me Later (2010), Take Care (2011) and Nothing Was the Same (2013).

Drake has not started to record the album in earnest due to a number of upcoming commitments. He will host the ESPY awards Wednesday on ESPN, his record label OVO has two projects scheduled for release July 29 and his annual OVO hip-hop festival kicks off the weekend of August 3. In addition, the rapper embarks on a 31-city tour with Lil Wayne on August 8.

In light of the rapper's busy schedule, a release date has not been set for Views from the 6. The "6" in the title reportedly refers to the area codes 416 and 647 in Drake's hometown of Toronto.
