In August 2014, Future announced plans for EVOL, which is pronounced evil and is “love” spelled backwards. According to BuzzFeed, the songs are not about falling out of love, but rather about the unexpected forms love can take. The cover artwork alludes to the theme with burnt roses.

Earlier today, a Metro Boomin-produced song called “In Abundance” hit the net, but it’s unknown if it will appear on EVOL.
