The world is waking up to “Lemonade,” but Drake has a major announcement of his own.

The singer has announced a run of “Summer Sixteen” tour dates tied to the impending release of “Views From the 6,” his new album out Friday. The tour kicks off in July and lands in L.A. at Staples Center on Sept. 7 and 9.

Frequent Drake collaborator and “What A Time to Be Alive” partner Future will be the main support, with new OVO Sound signings DVSN and Roy Woods. Tickets for the shows go on sale Friday.

Drake has also set the date for the next annual OVO Fest, on July 29 at the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto. Guests include Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa.

Drake previously tipped the cover art for the LP, where he sits plaintively atop Toronto’s CN Tower. The view indeed looks nice from up there.
