Even GORDO is surprised by the opening act of his new creative chapter.

Is hasn't even been a week since Diamanté Blackmon hung up his headphones as Carnage, laying his longtime moinker to rest with his final show in Australia on June 11th. While his initial retirement announcement several weeks earlier left some room for speculation as to what the DJ's future would look like while continuing his career as GORDO, we now have our first revealing glimpse.

In a surprise announcement yesterday, Drake revealed his seventh studio album Honestly, Nevermind, just nine months after the release of Certified Lover Boy. Drizzy's earth-shaking news was immediately followed by an equally intriguing reveal from GORDO, who produced six songs from the surprise album.

"I'm very honored and humbled to have produced 6 songs on the new Drake album, Honestly, Nevermind," GORDO announced in a tweet. "Thank you brother for trusting me and allowing me to be a part of the vision. I never factored this into the equation for the beginning of my next chapter, but thank you."

GORDO's contributions to Honestly, Nevermind include "Calling My Name," "Sticky," "Massive," "Currents," "Flight's Booked," and "Tie That Binds." Grammy-winning house music producer Black Coffee also contributed to multiple tracks to the album, which also credits &ME, Rampa and Klahr as producers. Take a listen below.
