Doja Cat fans have been gearing up for the release of her fourth album, which she has now announced is called 'Scarlet', after changing it from ‘Hellmouth’ and 'First of All'.

DC4 has been hotly-anticipated by fans after she released her third album ‘Planet Her’ back in 2021, which featured an array of hit tracks including ‘Woman’, ‘Kiss Me More’ and ‘You Right’.

The songstress’ most recent single before the start of her new era was her 2022 track ‘Vegas’ for the Elvis biopic starring Austin Butler, and everyone has been eager to hear new bops from the superstar since.

Doja has now dropped the first couple of singles - 'Attention' and 'Paint The Town Red' - from her new album and they both quickly went viral on TikTok.

As we await the release of her new project, here are all the details we know so far including the tracklist and features to when it’s coming out…

When is Doja Cat’s ‘Scarlet’ album coming out?

Doja Cat's fourth album is coming out on 22nd September. The release date comes weeks after she released the first two singles, 'Attention' and 'Paint The Town Red', which wasted no time in becoming chart-toppers.

She announced the title alongside a picture of its cover, writing in the caption: "SCARLET 9.22."

What is the album cover for Doja Cat's fourth album 'Scarlet'?

Doja Cat has finally unveiled the album cover for her upcoming record, an image of a crimson-coloured spider with a droplet in front of it.

Interestingly, it's a slightly altered version of metal band Chaver's album cover, which comes out on the same day as Doja's. Both covers were made by artist Dusty Ray.

Is there a tracklist for Doja Cat’s new album ‘Scarlet’?

Doja revealed the track list for her upcoming album, confirming there are no features on the 15 songs:

  • 'Paint the Town Red'
  • 'Demons'
  • 'Wet V*****'
  • 'F*** the Girls (FTG)'
  • 'Ouchies'
  • '07'
  • 'Gun'
  • 'Go Off'
  • 'Agora Hills'
  • 'Can't Wait'
  • 'Often'
  • 'Love Life'
  • 'Skull n Bones'
  • 'Attention'
  • 'Balut'

The track list is a little different from the one Doja shared a few months ago, which featured songs that now no longer appear on the record like 'NHIE' and 'Seeing Stars'.

Fans had already guessed a lengthy tracklist would appear on the follow-up to ‘Planet Her’ as her previous albums tend to feature over 10 songs.

She previously spoke to Dazed about how she has songs she’s written in the past few years that “need to come out”, so we can expect a mix of music. In terms of what genre the multifaceted star will lean more towards with her forthcoming album, Variety previously reported that it will feature more rap.

She told the publication: “I want to explore punk. But not pop-punk. I feel like we have enough pop-punk artists right now. And if there needs to be more, then let there be more, but I don’t think I’m the one to do it.

“I want to explore more of a raw, unfiltered, hardcore punk sort of thing. It’s just something that I’m doing for my own personal fun - getting some drummers and guitarists together. And I don’t even know if that’s gonna make it out there."

Doja confirmed this herself after responding to a fan on Twitter, revealing that "pop isn't exciting to me anymore. I don't wanna make it".

She went on to say that her new album will be "rap only", adding that she wants to prove she doesn't only write "mid" and "corny" verses.

"I wasn't trying to prove anything. I just enjoy making music," said Doja, "But I'm getting tired of hearing y'all say that I can't [rap] so I will."

Doja took to Twitter in May to call her previous albums 'cash-grabs', fuelling speculation that her fourth album will take a different path.

This comes after she also confirmed the title change to 'Scarlet', having previously announced it would be called 'Hellmouth' and later claiming it was called 'First Of All'.

Will Doja Cat collaborate with any artists on her fourth album?

The featured artists on Doja's upcoming album - if any - are yet to be announced.

However, the ‘Juicy’ hitmaker has previously worked with an array of huge names over the years including SZA, The Weeknd, Megan Thee Stallion, Ariana Grande and Saweetie, so the world is quite literally her oyster!

Fans speculated that Doja may be teaming up with Nicki Minaj for a second time after she archived all of her posts on Instagram and shared a snap of a sea view alongside the cryptic caption, "4" - and some eagle-eyed fans think it's the exact view from one of Ms Minaj's properties.

They last worked together on the remix of Doja's hit track 'Say So' - and we'd love to hear the rap queens on a track together again!
