After taking an extended break from the spotlight, Usher is back with new music. It’s called A and it’s a collaboration with Atlanta staple, Zaytoven.

Before he released the album at midnight, the singer quietly deleted all of the posts from his Instagram page and replaced them with twelve snippets of unreleased tracks from his new project. The caption for each of the twelve posts simply reads “Midnight EST.”

The announcement comes just in time for Usher’s upcoming birthday. He turns 40 on Sunday.
