Los Angeles - Drake's new album Views From the 6 could be released in a matter of weeks.

The 29-year-old rapper performed at South by Southwest Festival (SXSW) in Austin, Texas, on Saturday night and on stage he told the crowd his fourth LP will drop very soon.

Speaking to the crowd, he said: "Views From the 6 coming in I don't know how many weeks. so I hope y'all enjoy that shit."

The Hotline Bling hitmaker also announced some tour dates will follow the release of the record, but he gave very little details - just that he will be performing in Austin, Dallas and Houston.

Meanwhile, Drake has been busy making guest appearances at Rihanna's Anti world tour with his most recent in Miami last week, where he performed their hit song Work.

Drake previously claimed Views From the 6 - his first studio album in three years and the follow-up to 2013's Nothing Was the Same - would showcase his musical progression and would contain some surprises.

He said: "I'm trying really trying. It's not like I'm just sitting here, just fuckin' shooting with my eyes closed. Like, I'm trying. I'm really trying to make music for your life."
