Chance the Rapper has been on a more experimental bent recently with his band The Social Experiment. After dropping a cover of the 'Arthur' theme song and playing the curmudgeon on 'No Better Blues,' he's getting ready to release a new album, 'Surf,' as early as the end of the year.

According to his interview with Billboard, Chance will release the LP for free. 'Surf' will be his first project since last year's critically acclaimed 'Acid Rap.' The new album's existence isn't the only surprise; he's also worked with the likes of Frank Ocean, Migos, J. Cole and Migos. Although none are confirmed to be on the album, it's a stretch of the imagination to wonder what a Migos and Chance collaboration would sound like.

"There's been a lot of just people in the studio watching us work almost like a house band," Chance reveals. "People come in just to watch us jam out."

The 21-year-old Chicago native is known for the unpredictability with his music -- who ever saw that 'Arthur' theme song remake coming. The Social Experiment definitely brings those traits further to the forefront, so 'Surf' is obviously an anticipated listen.
