Here's to hoping that a few of our favorite artists get bit by the surprise album bug.

Titled HITNRUN phase two, the new album is a follow up to his September release HITNRUN phase one, released exclusively on Tidal. 

Although surprise albums are dropping left and right, we're hoping that a few specific artists get the bug and give us an early Christmas gift.
