The title of Kendrick Lamar‘s highly anticipated third studio album has now gone from [Untitled] to To Pimp a Butterfly, which is still set to release on March 23, 2015 via Top Dawg Ent./Aftermath/Interscope

Along with album artwork, an official tracklisting for the set has also been revealed to include the Grammy-winning single “i,” a hair-raising second single The Blacker the Berry and a 70s blaxploitation film-inspired “King Kunta.”

It’s unclear from the listing whether the untitled song Kendrick premiered on The Colbert Report in December has been titled and included on the LP.

No features are listed but known collaborators are Pharrell Williams, Dr. Dre, TDE’s in-house crew Sounwave, Thundercat, Anna Wise, Bilal, Rahki, and Tae Beast.

Described by the Compton emcee as “honest, fearful, and unapologetic,” the LP incorporates elements of funk, spoken-word poetry, and free-jazz.
