“ASTROWORLD’s been set in stone since Rodeo,” Travis told Zane Lowe last week. “My whole idea was if you locked in to Rodeo, you definitely locked into ASTROWORLD. I’m just finishing the saga I started on my first album. This is supposed to be my second album. I had to go quick, because like I said, I had all these ideas, I just had to get off real quick, but now I’m finally back home with ASTROWORLD.”
